"Earth’s distant orb appeared the smallest light that twinkles in the heaven; whilst round the chariot’s way innumerable systems rolled and countless spheres diffused an ever-varying glory. It was a sight of wonder: some were hornèd like the crescent moon; some shed a mild and silver beam like Hesperus o'er the western sea; some dashed athwart with trains of flame, like worlds to death and ruin driven; some shone like suns, and as the chariot passed, eclipsed all other light." From "Queen Mab" by Percy Bysshe Shelley (1813)

Eggs, Bunnies, Squirrels And Ben Folds Five
Knowing how to show a girl a good time, I took Mrs Kitsch to a great little exhibition at Room 212 on Gloucester Road on Saturday. It was a “Calm Air All Ice” presentation curated by our friend Camilla and her friend Claire and in the style of Sesame Street was brought to us by the number “52”, having work by 52 different artists. It was very good with some very nice pieces in there but I really liked how everything was displayed. Here’s some examples.
Mrs Kitsch and I are hoping to have an exhibition at Room 212 ourselves later this year. Watch this space.
Oh yes, it rained a fair bit, well it was Easter so it wasn’t unexpected but what was unexpected was hailstones the size of school dinner peas.
