springtide


For surely it is a magical thing for a handful of words, artfully arranged, to stop time.  To conjure a place, a person, a situation, in all its specificity and dimensions.  To affect us and alter us, as profoundly as real people and things do.
~Jhumpa Lahiri, My Life's Sentences via youngna park

Happy Spring to each of you!

  11. Yes, yes it is a magical thing indeed - in fact it is one of my all time favourite things. There is nothing quite like reading a sentence, or a paragraph, that makes one gasp and stop in their tracks.
    And such pretty spring images - lovely.
    Have a wonderful weekend, Annie x
