Hello, I’m Billie. Thank you if you are reading this.
”We want the sense of the saturation of Christ’s blood upon the souls of our poets, that it may cry through them in answer to the ceaseless wail of the Sphinx of our humanity, expounding agony into renovation. Something of this has been perceived in art when its glory was at the fullest”.
– Elizabeth Barrett Browning, ‘Some Account of the Greek Christian Poets’.
A few updates to the blog, will be different though still (I hope) fundamentally related to the arts, meaning & some kind of numinous spiritual context.
Since I am now doing these things and, in a way, writing for a living, I am wondering whether it might be worth using this more as a notebook for little things I am learning and remarking on more regularly, rather than properly articulated extended arguments. Full sentences can be more effort than it’s worth.
For those of you still interested in reading – thank you, and thanks for bearing with me.
