Lambert’s shrine, Lige, from 1142 CE These are only a few examples of the silk industry that kept the West looking to Byzantium for its fabled luxuries. Many of the silk textiles called “Byzantine” up to the sixth century and possibly beyond have strongly Sassanid traditional motif elements of symmetrically facing creatures; one is possibly the mythicalsimurgh(orsenmurvin earlier use) surrounded by roundels of pearls. This continuing Sassanid influence (or source) complicates determining what should be rightly called “Byzantine” silk, and the debate is not likely to be easily resolved, although the research and publications of Anna Murthius is perhaps most credible to date on this matter.This one 6th century event changed the course of history in how several silk monopolies in China and Persia were broken through industrial espionage and smuggling by the Byzantine world to set up a competing silk monopoly in the relative West.
The water was a bit technical and reminded me a lot of the Nantahala in Tennessee. Of course, there is no time to snap photos while paddling the waves, so I was only able to get shots of the calm waters between rapids. Some of the waves were pretty big and one of them went over my head and soaked me completely.
A couple of times a year I try to bring order to the chaos that is my wardrobe. I tried arranging by colour, type and even grouping together items I think would work well together. Fortunately a nifty little app called Cloth is about to go all Cher Horowitz on my wardrobe.
Pulmonary embolism is also among the more dangerous atrial fibrillation complications. This occurs when a clot breaks free and travels through the bloodstream, blocking an artery in the lung. Because the lung won’t receive adequate blood flow due to the blockage, the lung can be permanently damaged.
Types and zeon arent even a thing in Gundam after war like we need a rewatch here. Tiffa is a Newtype. Also Newtype dolphins were a thing. It may break form and be an uncomfortable watch. It may even seem that this is being forced down our throats or preached. But for one episode, in the grand scheme of things, what is more important?Discussing and realising the extent of knife crime and being able to have that opportunity to talk to our children and families about what is going on in the world and what we can do to try and make a difference? Or EastEnders not breaking the fourth wall?For one episode an episode out of slot to boot we can suspend the fictional world we expect and take a look at the bigger picture.
