The Fabulous Yawning Breadth of the Internet

Nothing that's good can be copied...

This reminds me of Plato's cave of ideas and cookie cutter imagery. We are only imperfect attempts at copying God's original perfection. Somewhere there is a cookie cutter of the perfect woman and the perfect man.

And Yves St Laurent is dressing them.


And in a moment of loving that YouTube is brimful with fashion and vintage dress as well as idiots putting cats in washing machines, I also discovered that I am not alone in my house on a Saturday Night. The Internet really does bring people together.

The best moments in reading ae when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you had thought special and particular to you. Now here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out and taken yours.
