Violets in the River: March 28, 2015

Now I will relinquish; now I will let loose.  Now I will at last free the checked, the jerked back desire to be spent, to be consumed.  We will gallop together over desert hills where the swallow dips her wings in dark pools and the pillars stand entire.  Into the wave that dashes upon the shore, into the wave that flings its white foam to the uttermost corners of the earth I throw my violets, my offering to Percival.  -- The Waves (119)

Bridge at Southease Halt in full March spate; Woolf's walking stick was found near the fence on the bankside.

Woolf committed suicide on March 28, 2015 by walking into the Ouse River near her home in Rodmell
