Drawings of Meanderings


 

Been working on finishing up a book to go to the publisher and haven't had any time for much else. Last night I was talking to my sister on the phone and drew this.

I wish I could think of something clever to say but my brain is a vast empty desert, devoid of thought.... so here's a literary quote to munch on.
Yeats from THE CELTIC TWILIGHT.
“What is literature but the expression of moods by the vehicle of symbol

and incident? And are there not moods which need heaven, hell, purgatory,

and faeryland for their expression, no less than this dilapidated earth? 
Nay, are there not moods which shall find no expression unless there be

men who dare to mix heaven, hell, purgatory, and faeryland together, or

even to set the heads of beasts to the bodies of men, or to thrust the

souls of men into the heart of rocks? Let us go forth, the tellers of

tales, and seize whatever prey the heart long for, and have no fear.

Everything exists, everything is true, and the earth is only a little dust
 under our feet.”

  1. I am reminded by your phone sketches and the lovely quote from Yeats that our deepest response as humans is to the good, the true and the beautiful. Thank you for sharing goodness, truth and beauty with the rest of us.

  2. You must love your sister a lot! Look at what your subconscious came out with while you were talking to her - something so beautiful!

  3. Thanks, Marcia! I'm talking to myself as well. :-)

    Celia, yes! My sister is adorable. There is nothing like a sister. (Or a brother for that matter. We Scott's hang together.)
