Splash du Jour: Friday













I have this picture above one of my chest-level bookcases.
That tree-thing reading a book in the right corner? That’s supposed to be an Ent [Lord of the Rings]… given to me by my beloved nephew, Chris.
The inscription, at the top of the picture, is as follows:

The men who create power make an indispensable contribution to the Nation’s greatness, but the men who question power make a contribution just as indispensable, especially when that questioning is disinterested, for they determine whether we use power or power uses us.
-- John F. Kennedy, Amherst College, Oct 26, 1963 –

Have a great Friday!

Is that a ... brush with a pink handle? Lovely pile of books! :)

Actually, no.
That is a pink highlighter, beside the base of a candle, made of coffee beans.
