"Cosmonaut Museum" for +Artistic Google's tour of Russia, curated by +Rob Robinson +Chee Yow +Jamal Masood +Patrick Sheeran and me.

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of Wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air...
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark or even eagle flew --
And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

One of my booky friends over on The Dark Side recommended Carlos Ruiz Zafón's masterpiece, "The Shadow of the Wind"? Another book to be savoured slowly because, although one would like to stay up all night to read it, knowing that there are still a few pages left at the end for the next day is the best part.

An Umberto Eco-ish intrigue set in Barcelona, a story within a story and, luckily, it appears to be part of a trilogy. 

Too many wonderful quotes to count, but this one, I thought, might draw in my friend, +Robin Cohen :

“Julian spoke with the clear, unequivocal lucidity of madmen who have escaped the hypocrisy of having to abide by a reality that makes no sense.”
