History May Not Repeat Itself,
But It Often Rhymes

Seamus Heaney, 'The Cure at Troy'

So how has the world been treating you this past week? If you're like the Editor here, you've spent a lot of it keeping up with the news and worrying about people. Some of them you know, some you don't. We'll keep on worrying, but in the meantime, what we can't cure must be endured. Let's honour our planet and each other by sharing images, thoughts, and ideas.

This week, our contributors offer:

  • …photos of animals. One of them is X-rated. We're on the honour system here, so don't look at it if you're aren't over 18.
  • …photos of the sky doing interesting things. We spot so many meteorological phenomena it's amazing that more Researchers don't fall into holes like FWR did.
  • …photos of unusual things we saw. You can count on us to keep a sharp eye out for the out-of-the-way, like SashaQ's ad hoc 'car garden'.
  • …thoughts, reviews, reminiscences and other text-type stuff. FWR's remembrance of his childhood neighbourhood may surprise you. Want to tell us about your home town/city/stretch of highway? We want to hear. Email us.
  • …humour. Often bizarre, as funny as we can make it. This week, Bluebottle concludes the heartwarming (?) Christmas saga that began, oh, about Christmas, and has continued through Groundhog Day and beyond. You won't want to miss this conclusion. Don't worry: next week, he'll be back with more of the Isle of Wight fantasy soap opera. Which is more fun than 'Dark Shadows' and has better production values as long as he doesn't get his coloured pencils confused.

Have the best week humanly possible, friends. Be careful out there. Remember to be as kind as you can. Only say things you hope will help.
