Go Forth

Autumn Landscape at Dusk

And God said to me, Go forth:

For I am king of time.
But to you I am only the shadowy one
who knows with you your loneliness
and sees through your eyes.

He sees through my eyes
in all the ages.

From The Book of Hours I, 53

  1. the painting has so much presence. solemnity. the words mirror that sensation. i am captivated by the idea of something, someone, seeing through my eyes. steven


"Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night."

~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Go ahead, bloom recklessly!
