The mud and sandstone walls hid the multistory palace of Imam Yahya, built in the 1930s. From one of the terraces where we were in...vited to dine in the evening we could look down some 1000 feet into the valley and the lights of the village. The floor was covered with bright carpets, pots with plants were everywhere, and the light came from candles set on tripods. Over chicken and lamb with lentils, followed by cake and cardamom tea, the Imam explained that the tripods were left by a British surveying expedition in the twenties, mapping the deserts and hills of Yemen. We were impressed by the fact that the metal and wood, combined with saddler?s leather straps, still looked fresh and new, obviously a combination of quality and form follows function. read more

Phrenology, termed the ?only true science of the mind? in its day, was a generally accepted pseudo-science of the 19th century. Ph...renology was believed to be the next step in the evolution of the four humors. It taught that a person?s physiognomy showed moral, intellectual and social development. It was also used to depict the future, access a suitor, and evaluate job applications. More than a century later, Phrenology enjoys a revival of sorts. As the science of body features, it teaches that by observing someone?s hands, feet and face, their mind and soul can be revealed. All aspects of character, from perception to benevolence, were located in certain locations of the brain. An iconic tool of the medical profession, these faculties were rendered on a shaped porcelain head. Such busts were popular in doctor?s offices and Victorian libraries. Our modern version displays attributes of character in cool, vibrant colors and to a natural curiousity about the mind and consciousness. Both styles of Phrenology Head are interesting as historical documents and fascinate in their own way as highly decorative accessories. Both easily double as enigmatic and practical bookends. read more

Our house was large, which was no luxury since it was filled with children and books. My Dad had the upper floors braced with stee...l beams; his library was heavy. Books filled his study and dominated the six bedrooms. Even the stairs were lined with bookshelves. We never ran out of reading material, one of the perks of his job as the editor-in-chief of a newspaper. Another advantage was free tickets to the theater, opera, and to the occasional circus passing through. Dad liked the opera. I liked the circus. The circus won, and I peeled potatoes for eight all winter. I still prefer the smell of elephants, tigers and lions to that of potato skin. And the horses! Not to forget the ladies riding bareback, flaunting their gauze tutus. I realize that in our and time, trained animas are an issue, but to me, sitting front row, the circus was another world, one of romance, adventure, color and exotic smells. read more
