Explorations Into Liminality
“and there came an arm and a hand above the water and met it and caught it, and so shook it thrice and brandished it, and then vanished away the hand with the sword in the water.”

Wishful Words for Wednesday



You love the roses - so do I. I wish
The sky would rain down roses, as they rain
From off the shaken bush. Why will it not?

Then all the valley would be pink and white
And soft to tread on. They would fall as light

As feathers, smelling sweet; and it would be
Like sleeping and like waking, all at once!
~George Eliot

the pre-Raphaelites painted roses in the most seductive way Julie didn't they. They're (roses)really more than a flower aren't they? I mean I know one can eat them and wear the scent but aren't they heavenly things? Your jewellery is just so rosemantic.Fabulous soldering goin on too!

Oh, my lovely mermaid sister, wouldn't it be sweet to sleep on a bed of roses? While eating dark chocolate? Oh! Sweetness, indeed!!
