Quote of the Day


"Behind us lie
The thousand and the thousand and the thousand years
Vexed and terrible. And still we use
The cures which never cure.

O God, the fabulous wings unused,
Folded in the heart."


"Strange how we trust the powers that ruin
And not the powers that bless." *






*Christopher Fry, A Sleep of Prisoners

These quotes speak of a great sadness.

Thank you so much for your comment on my last post. At a time when my physical world is greatly altered, it's reassuring to know that my artistic world reaches out to others when I can't.
