Audrey Hepburn on the set of Sabrina, 1953.
Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense. This day is all that is good and fair. It is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on yesterdays.
A song is a construct, whose mechanisms can be classified and analyzed like the objects of any other science. The Romantic prejudice that songs, like people, harbor a vital essence (a soul which is discourteous to tamper with) should be unmasked as a bit of disguised theology, a superstitious fear of reasoned inquiry which makes a fetish of music and reinforces the authority of a “naturally” sensitive critical elite.

what is this magic?!
This magic is a Turkish technique called Ebru. It uses dyes, paints, or pigments to draw on water, the finished image is then transferred to paper or fabric by laying it over the image.

This is also how one makes those marbled endsheets for books!
