It’s actually going to be 70 degrees here in Michigan today, so I plan to be OUTSIDE enjoying the day, and not online.

While I’m gone, why not enjoy this lovely artwork from BiblioOdyssey.  It’s from a Ukiyo-e book from the late 1700’s.

There is also poetry to go with it:

The feelings of a cold-hearted lover
are like a cicada:
it cries constantly
but never shows its face
•Miwa no Sugikado•

You can look at the 50 page (!!) Insect Book in this online museum exhibit. OMG is it beautiful.
