Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, “Herbstlied,” Op. 63 No. 4

“ I think she finds herself let down. I think she finds herself disappointed by reality and she sees that although she’s living in the doldrums of reality, she’s been told that there’s far greater life somewhere and she’s bitterly disappointed that she doesn’t have access to it. ”

—    David Bowie on the girl in his song ‘Life On Mars?’ (via timemcflys)

Two Canadian Nurses - May, 1917

It is easy to understand why Canadian nurses were nicknamed “bluebirds” when catching a glimpse of their white veils and blue uniforms. Nurses were provided with a light blue service uniform, seen on the left, as well as a navy blue ceremonial uniform worn by the nurse on the right. Both are displaying the nursing cape with crimson lining. More details about the uniform and other items included in a nurse’s kit can be found on the Collections Canada website.

In total 3,141 sisters volunteered for the Canadian Army Nursing Service between 1914-1918. But nursing behind the front lines was not without danger; 47 Canadian nurses gave their lives during the First World War, which includes more than a dozen who were killed when a Canadian hospital ship was torpedoed by a German U-boat in 1918.

You can find out more about the role of Canadian nurses in the Great War and the names of those that gave their lives from the Veterans Affairs website.

Syd Barrett (6 January 1946 – 7 July 2006)

It's awfully considerate of you to think of me here
And I'm much obliged to you for making it clear
That I'm not here.

And what exactly is a dream?
And what exactly is a joke?
