A very nice blog from Dom, in which she gives her "random thoughts on beauty, dining, travel and living in the PRC". Thanks, Catcaley (click her tag above to see much other good stuff that she has sent my way).

A very nice video featuring the work of Patricia van Lubeck, set to some glorious music which I am pretty sure is by Karl Jenkins - it is very like (but isn't) one of the tracks on "Adiemus"

"Patricia van Lubeck is a self-taught artist. Born in Amsterdam in 1965, she was a bookeeper until 2000 when she started the 21st century by becoming a fulltime professional artist. She moved to the Bay of Plenty in New Zealand in 2005 and since then her work has taken a new and exciting direction. Her works in recent years show landscapes and weird plant species which she calls her psychedelic gardens."

Patricia van Lubeck was one of Ritas's favourite artists, and you can listen to more of Karl Jenkins' beautiful music here.

Thanks to my friend Catcaley for this one!

Adagietto, from Symphony No. 5 in C-Sharp Minor, 4th Movement, by Gustav Mahler

Thanks Catcaley for sending me this piece of music, one of the most beautiful ever written (IMO) - and a nice video too

"QiQi by the Door"

"The Cellist"

Nice work by the modern Chinese painter Zhao Kailin - thanks, Catcaley!

The glorious "Pearl Fishers" duet sung by Andrea Bocelli and Bryn Terfel - performances of it don't get much better than this!

Thanks for the share, Cat!

"Owls Talking" by the great Russian photographer Lilia Tkachenko

One of many delights to be found on Cat's fine pages, which are full of humour, an obvious passion for nature, animals and the environment, beautiful art and images, French and English poetry, and much else besides.

A visit is highly recommended.

(When I find out where she has moved to, I'll update this!)
