“History is, after all, a continuing state of flux, and Utopia is a recurring nightmare. I prefer the nightmare of reality. In fact, I have grown quite accustomed to it.”

A necklace made of antique carnelian ‘pemma raka’ beads from the Himalayas that have been combined with brass bells that most probably come out of India or Nagaland.

Roman Britain, 1st-4th century ADProbably from London
Inscribed with a sketch of a lighthouse
The sketch appears to show a pharos, a Roman lighthouse. Two such lighthouses flanked the Roman harbour at Dover, the main base of the British fleet. The sketch was scratched onto the tile before firing.

I guess today’s theme is “raw”. Here is another house beautifully done, yet not my taste. I can definitely appreciate the thoughts and ideas that went through this residence. The color of wood is the only wood color I like: slight gray. I only like wood as accent pieces, but somehow this house is meant to be made out of all wood. It is absolutely stunning. I wish the US had much more design oriented homes; but it makes sense since everything in this country is about time and money, nothing else.
