Crate of Curios part 61

Today was the glorious day, when I finally caught a glimpse of heating, touching a radiator by chance and noticing that… it was warm! If I also could change roles with my cat for a few days, staying curled up in the warm bed, when she goes to work instead, it would be simply brilliant. Alas, as it’s not likely to happen, tomorrow is a workday again, so let’s get this week’s Crate opened without further ado.

  1. “I found myself, I made myself, I said what I had to say.” – Suzanne Valadon, a model-turned-successful-modernist-artist is finding her way back to art history from years of obscurity.

2. As I already mentioned the desire for winter hibernation, here’s a beautiful meditation on sleep.

3. Like storytelling and Hollywood? In this case ‘You Must Remember This‘ podcast is waiting for you.

4. This…. is a meat loaf.

5. The self-help book from 400 years ago – “The Anatomy of Melancholy” has been decoded.

6. And to finish off for this week – a little procrastination cartoon by Ellis Rosen.

And that’s it for this time. Happy reading and until next week!
