    The vacant interstellar spaces, the vacant into the vacant"

  2. Two of my other blogs…

    : Paintings I like. 

    : A kind of “overflow” for things I find interesting but don’t wish to include in my main blog. An eclectic mix in no particular order.

    Enjoy and follow if you like.

    And it grows, the vain
    even for us with our
    bright green sins:

    behold the dry guest,
    the wind,
    as it stirs up quarrels
    among magnolia boughs

    and plays its serene
    tune on
    the prows of all the leaves—
    and then is gone,

    leaving the leaves
    still there,
    the tree still green, but breaking
    the heart of the air.

    -Carlo Betocchi, ”Summer”, trans. by Geoffrey Brock + +
