We are all immigrants to this place even if we were born here: the country is too big for anyone to inhabit completely, and in the parts unknown to us we move in fear, exiles and invaders. This country is something that must be chosen – it is so easy to leave – and if we do choose it we are still choosing a violent duality.

- Margaret Atwood, The Journals of Susanna Moodie

Just heard, in a podcast, that there are 350,000 known species of beetles: and scientists expect there are 10x MORE that have not yet been discovered. Then this lil guy landed on me. #keanuwoahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

This was THE Howard Arkley image I remember from art class, but it's so much more luminous and vibrant in the flesh. Love this quote from Arkley too: "My work is deadly earnest to the point of being ponderous. I find it rather confusing to be considered to be taking the mickey… I'm interested in the notion of beauty in the suburbs."
