Day 158 – Days Like This

What a day. It began with taking photos in the sunshine at Mrs. Macquarie’s chair, included an hour at the Steiglitz exhibition at the Art Gallery of NSW,  a tour around the trading floor of UBS and ended up getting caught in a downpour and a phone call with news of the death of a third family member since I’ve started this blog. ‘C’est la vie’ said the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell.

Asleep – Emily Dickinson

Asleep.

As far from pity as complaint,
As cool to speech as stone,
As numb to revelation
As if my trade were bone.

As far from time as history,
As near yourself to-day
As children to the rainbow’s scarf,
Or sunset’s yellow play

To eyelids in the sepulchre.
How still the dancer lies,
While color’s revelations break
,
And blaze the butterflies!

RIP Dan
