I've been on a strong Internet tip all weekend and my next post will be a few recommendations from my recently rejuvenated link list.
This afternoon though, I was listening to the splosh of the people in the crowded pool below my balcony (hence the Hockney image) and threw together this little session from some bits and pieces I've been feeling recently. I hope you enjoy.
