Amor Fati
nee spem nee metum

Things I Am Looking Forward To:
- craft projects in the works!  Two words: terrariums and talismans.
- new music on the way.  Expect blackened doom and Cthulhuoid ambience.
- that new Jane Eyre film.
- finding a few spare hours to re-read my favorite William Hope Hodgson stories.

 Sentence of Death, 1908,  oil on canvas by John Maler Collier, British, 1850-1934. Wolverhampton Arts Gallery, Wolverhampton, Staffordshire, England.
  A man sits in stunned silence with his doctor as he hears he has a fatal illness. Unknown whether or not the canvas was damaged or if the blurring of the figure indicates the already partial death of the patient.
 This painting, while popular and successful, represented one of what was called “problem” works. Some critics dismissed it as too much like the style of advertisements at the time.
