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)

A Green Brush: December 6, 2015
"Birth of Venus" by Laken Bridges
dissolution of everything
this is to be contrasted wi the permanence of – what?
Sun, moon & stars.
Hopeless gulfs of misery.
Change. Oblivion. Human vitality.Old woman
Cleaning up. The bobbed up, valorous, as of a principle
Of human life projected
We are handed on by our children?
Shawls and shooting caps. A green handled brush.
The devouringness of nature
But all the time, this passes, accumulates
The welter of winds & waves
What then is the medium through wh. We regard human beings?
