2020 has felt like a six month wall sit.
~Afshon Ostovar

Do you know what a wall sit is? It's this, and I think Afshon's quote is pretty much spot on. A little horology today:

Captive balloon with clock face and bell, floating above the Eiffel Tower, Paris, France
by Camille Grávis

Antiquitätenstillleben mit Kaminuhr
by Josef Schuster (1873–1945)

What a heckuva collection! One really beautiful painting, one fantasy painting, one bloody scary sculpture , and one watch I can't make heads nor tails of.

Thanks for the introduction to these works of art, Tabatha. But I have to say I LOLed at the Afshon Ostovar quote. Yes, a 6 month wall sit with a 3 1/2 plank on the side! And we're just beginning July...Thanks for the smile today. :)
