every december, waxwings descend on great britain from their native scandanavian breading grounds. birdwatchers across the uk travel hundreds of miles to catch a glimpse of the rare birds, who turn up in significant numbers every few years. photos by dan kitwood, who captures the waxwings eating berries from a rowan tree in london.

The entire idea of rereading implies just such a likeable and progressive assumption about life, one that’s meant to keep us interested in living it: namely, that as you get further along, you find out more valuable stuff; familiarity doesn’t always give way to dreary staleness, but often in fact to celestial understandings; that life and literature both are layered affairs you can work down through.

[…]

Rereading a treasured and well-used book is a very different enterprise from reading a book the first time. It’s not that you don’t enter the same river twice. You actually do. It’s just not the same you who does the entering. By the time you get to the second go-round, you probably know—and know more about—what you don’t know, and are possibly more comfortable with that, at least in theory. And you come to a book the second or third time with a different hunger, a more settled sense about how far off the previously-mentioned great horizon really is for you, and what you do and don’t have time for, and what you might reasonably hope to gain from a later look.

Richard Ford on rereading. Lest we forget, Nabokov put it best“A good reader, a major reader, an active and creative reader is a rereader.” (via explore-blog)

The Champion of Kirkwall by Yama Orce

Not only do I love this for its own sake, but the girl in this picture looks a lot like Linden.

Now THIS photo looks remarkably like I imagine Rob. Certainly the hair is just about perfect, and the eyes, and the bone structure&#8230;
