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)

Stamping Misery: July 10, 2015
And then I was in 'one of my states' -- how violent how acute & walked in Regent's Park in black misery & had to summon my cohorts in the old way to see me through, which they have done more or less. A note made to testify to my own ups & downs; many of which go unrecorded as they are less violent I think than they used to be. But how familiar it was -- stamping along the road, with gloom and pain constricting my heart; & and the desire for death in the old way all for two, I daresay careless words.
