Elisabeth es probablemente la que mas veces ha aparecido aquí…Cada vez es un encuentro  con  inteligencia y sutileza.

Song of Myself. American Renaissance, o las paginas oficiales de Facebook de Edgar Alan Poe, Emily Dickinson, Thoreau, Melville, Hawthorne y Walt Whitman.



…”I know I am deathless, 
I know this orbit of mine cannot be swept by a carpenter’s compass, 
I know I shall not pass like a child’s carlacue cut with a burnt stick at night. 
I know I am august, 
I do not trouble my spirit to vindicate itself or be understood, 
I see that the elementary laws never apologize, 
(I reckon I behave no prouder than the level I plant my house by, after all.) 
I exist as I am, that is enough, 
If no other in the world be aware I sit content, 
And if each and all be aware I sit content. 
One world is aware and by far the largest to me, and that is myself, 
And whether I come to my own to-day or in ten thousand or ten million years, 
I can cheerfully take it now, or with equal cheerfulness I can wait…”
Walt Whitman. Extracto de Song of Myself.


Hoy toca alejarse de la pantalla, de su atractivo y a veces venenoso poder. Coger un libro, salir a pasear, sacar fotos, o lo que os dé la gana. Buen domingo a todos.

Thank you Elisabeth !
