Quotations from Virginia Woolf, often (but not always) linked to flowers, usually inspired by what is in bloom, and accompanied by my photos and artwork or that of friends. (Quotations are from the standard American editions: mostly the annotated Harcourt Brace series edited by Mark Hussey)

I meant nothing by The Lighthouse. One has to have a central line down the middle of the book to hold the design together, I saw that all sorts of feelings would accrue to this, but I refused to think them out, and trusted that people would make the deposit for their own emotions -- which they have done, one thinking it means one thing one another. I can't manage symbolism except in this vague, generalised way. Whether it is right or wrong I don't know, but directly I'm told what a thing means, it becomes hateful to me.
