Fling off thy sadness


Awake, thou wintry earth-
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness

~Thomas Blackburn

  1. Such pretty little flowers; so hopeful!

  2. I love the idea of ancient gladness...something that has withstood the test of time. Thanks, dear Donna.

    Love you,

  3. One of my favorite poems, EVER. So perfect with the crocus. ((hugs))

    Ah, a "painting" photograph....beautiful indeed!
    love and prayers, jep

  5. MizBoo, I watched the Bill Cunningham documentary!!! Oh my, I just LOVED it. He is amazing and I love his spirit so much. I just adore all his quirks and his zest for what he's doing. So inspirational. I'm home with a sick kid this week, so I also watched the Vivian Maier documentary -- which you also recommended a long time ago here on your blog. I got the book of images after reading about it here but seeing the documentary really opened it up to me in so many ways. What a fascinating story just laced with so much sadness....a complete and total contrast to the Bill Cunningham story -- interesting to have watched them both so close together. Thank you so much for the recommendation!!

  6. I absolutely love this photo. I absolutely despise the weather lately. It is beyond crazy. Snow, snow, go!
