Ah so much goodness occurred today! Went out for a 2-hour hike this morning, shopping with the Massi (maternal aunt), Sex and the City II with both my crazy mom and her equally nuts sister (Massi), followed by some “Band of Brothers” and delicious mangoes that my mom brought from the Indian store.
Tomorrow: getting all my internship and Peace Corps paperwork in order and then teaching my Princeton Review MCAT class @ Hopkins, followed by much needed time with Darcy!
I will not be just a tourist in the world of images, just watching images passing by which I cannot live in, make love to, possess as permanent sources of joy and ecstasy.
Anais Nin” —(via piffledream)
Came vested all in white, pure as her mind.
Her face was veiled; yet to my fancied sight
Love, sweetness, goodness, in her person shined
So clear as in no face with more delight.
But, oh! as to embrace me she inclined,
I waked, she fled, and day brought back my night.” —Milton, “On his Deceased Wife”
needs to get its act together…
Of Wisdom; hope no higher, though all the Stars
Thou knew’st by name, and all th’ ethereal Powers,
All secrets of the deep, all Nature’s works,
Or works of God in Heav’n, Air, Earth, or Sea,
And all riches of this World enjoy’dst,
And all the rule, one Empire: only add
Deeds to thy knowledge answerable, add Faith,
Add Virtue, Patience, Temperance, add Love,
By name to come called Charity, the soul
Of all the rest: then wilt though not be loth
To leave this Paradise, but shalt possess
A paradise within thee, happier far.” —Paradise Lost (XII.575–587)
