Medieval air guitar
Every so often I show you an entertaining medieval doodle. Here is one I encountered in a French image database today. This tiny drawing on the blank last page of the book shows a figure passionately engaged in what can only be called playing air guitar. He is wearing his best silly hat and he is giving us his blankest look. It a weird image, put their by a scribe to test out his pen: an essential deed that left an amusing drawing.
Pic: Amiens, Bibliothèque municipale, MS 220 (9th century).

Who knew doodling was such an ancient artform? :-)

known informally as asperatus clouds, this atmospheric phenomenon gets its name from the latin aspero, which roman poets used to describe the sea as it was roughened by the cold north wind. 

though the cause of their formation remains unknown, it is likely that the undulating and lumpy underside is a result of warmer, moister air from above and colder, dryer air from below meeting at the boundary between the lower and middle atmosphere.

when high level wind passes over rolling terrain, you get the same wavy effect as on the surface of water. but despite their ominous appearance, asperatus clouds tend to dissipate without a storm forming.

This is a silly thing I wrote for work, but I had so much fun with it that honestly it’s one of my favorite things I’ve written recently.

This is the forest primeval. The murmuring pines and the hemlocks,Bearded with moss, and in garments green, indistinct in the twilight,Stand like Druids of eld, with voices sad and prophetic,Stand like harpers hoar, with beards that rest on their bosoms.Loud from its rocky caverns, the deep-voiced neighboring oceanSpeaks, and in accents disconsolate answers the wail of the forest
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Autumn beauty…

This is the forest primeval. The murmuring pines and the hemlocks,
Bearded with moss, and in garments green, indistinct in the twilight,
Stand like Druids of eld, with voices sad and prophetic,
Stand like harpers hoar, with beards that rest on their bosoms.
Loud from its rocky caverns, the deep-voiced neighboring ocean
Speaks, and in accents disconsolate answers the wail of the forest

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
