Rest in Peace, James Garner. (April 7, 1928 - July 19, 2014)

"I’m a Spencer Tracy type actor. His idea was to be on time, know your words, hit your marks and tell the truth. Most every actor tries to make it something it isn’t looks for the easy way out. I don’t think acting is that difficult if you can put yourself aside and do what the writer wrote."

"If I know a song of Africa…of the giraffe…and the African new moon lying on her back…of the plows in the fields…and the sweaty faces of the coffee pickers…does Africa know a song of me?

Will the air over the plain quiver…with a color that I have on? Or will the children invent a game…in which my name is? Or the full moonthrow a shadow…over the gravel of the drive…that was like me?Or will the eagles of the Ngong Hills look out for me?”

Greek Mythology:  Narcissus (Νάρκισσος)

He was the son of River God Cephisus and nymph Lyriope. He was known for his beauty and he was loved by God Apollo due to his extraordinary physique. Narcissus was once walking by a lake and decided to drink some water; he saw his reflection in the water and was surprised by the beauty he saw; he became entranced by the reflection of himself. He could not obtain the object of his desire though, and he died at the banks of the lake from his sorrow. According to the myth Narcissus is still admiring himself in the Underworld, looking at the waters of the Styx. x

ALADDIN  Do not be fooled by its commonplace appearance. Like so many things, it is not what is outside, but what is inside that counts. This is no ordinary lamp. It once changed the course of a young man’s life. A young man, who, like this lamp, was more than what he seemed. A diamond in the rough.

ROYAL JEWELLERY || The Rosenborg Kokoshnik Tiara
Made in the 1930’s by the Danish jeweller Dragsted, The Rosenborg Kokoshnik Tiara was acquired by Prince Viggo, Count of Rosenborg for his American-born wife, Princess Viggo. As the couple didn’t have any children, the tiara was inherited by Prince and Princess Viggo’s sister-in-law, Princess Margaretha, who in return passed it on to her daughter-in-law, Countess Ruth of Rosenborg. Following her death, it was put on an auction at Bukowskis where the estimated value was placed at more than $200.000 but it did not sell. It is modelled after the traditional Russian headdress, the kokoshnik (hence the name), and consists of garnets and diamonds.
