Living Between the Lines

William Blake

Utah in the Afternoon The Lilly of the valley breathing in the humble grass Answer’d the lovely maid and said: “I am a watry weed, And I am very small, and love to dwell in lowly vales; So weak, the gilded butterfly scarce perches on my head; Yet I am visited from heaven, and heContinue reading “William Blake”

Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Headland Cove, Point Lobos I admit that twice two makes four is an excellent thing, but if we are to give everything it’s due, twice two makes five is sometimes a very charming thing too. Fyodor Dostoyevsky ~ Notes from the Underground

Cannery Row, Newport Beach (Reproduction) People tell themselves stories in order to make sense of the world. They believe the stories are true, even when they are not. (Note to self: The illusion of an illusion is that is not an illusion.) S. M. Hart ~ How to Crochet During the Apocalypse
