One of my most treasured volumes - Dr. Hugh Welch Diamond’s early photographs of his patients at the asylum.
My beloved Roald Dahl, in his writing hut.

More from El Ateneo Grand Splendid - I would secretly live there if I could.

Who ever said that pleasure wasn’t functional?
- Charles Eames
One need not be a chamber to be haunted,
One need not be a house;
The brain has corridors surpassing
Far safer, of a midnight meeting
Than an interior confronting
That whiter host.
Far safer through an Abbey gallop,
The stones achase,
Than, moonless, one’s own self encounter
In lonesome place.
Ourself, behind ourself concealed,
Should startle most;
Assassin, hid in our apartment,
Be horror’s least.

- Emily Dickinson

O’erlooking a superior spectre
