Theodore Zeldin has just updated his website Oxford Muse. Apart from being a stunning site with some amazing thoughts and ideas - what I love are the muse self-portraits. Take a look at this one for example by Alan Human - not quite what you would expect from a "down and out".
The self-portraits remind me of the material found on some of the better weblogs - they provide a deep insight into the person writing the blog or the self-portrait and at the same time a clearer insight into humanity. I think it would be interesting if every blogger wrote a Theodore Zeldin style self-portrait that was posted prominently on their weblog as a way to introduce themselves.
Take a look at the other muse self-portraits too.
