Bink Sends Forth Light Squibs

bink (Lucinda) hates the nickname Lucy and has never used it.
I always associate her with Santa Lucia anyway, whose Feast Day is today, December 13.
And never more than this year, as she paints her wall for the season.

As John Donne [almost] said:

'Tis the year's midnight, and Lucy
...Sends forth light squibs ;
[Daleks are] every dead thing,
In whom Love wrought new alchemy.

--A Nocturnal upon Saint Lucy's Day

Those are the most adorable Daleks I've ever seen! I can just hear them: "IL-LU-MI-NATE!"

deanna said...

Ohh, I want her to decorate our walls! (Dalek the halls?)

I love artists! It would never even occur to me to paint my walls! Maybe I should turn my daughter loose in our boring hallway.

fresca said...

"il-lu-mi-nate"!!! I can't believe I didn't think of that myself.
And I'm singing "Dalek the halls" right now!
You all are too funny--and isn't it funny how daleks inspire us to silliness.

Momo: that would make a great photo essay!

Ohh, Bink, I love these!

They are awfully darling and I feel quite fond of them. We had a party on Saturday night and other than Fresca I think only one guest knew what Daleks were...but everyone seemed to love them. I love
"Dalek the halls" and thank you for "il-lu-min-ate" that's what I go around saying all the time now.
