Favorite Quote:
It takes a long time for a man to look like his portrait.
::: James McNeill Whistler :::

Eudemonic now, experience weaves
Itself into tapestries, edges fraying with time.
Unravelling, unfurling, the delicate buds of springtime
In gentle discord withering, but naught perceives
How their soft nodding grows weary;
Such sacrifice amongst all, self lost
To the whole, threads bound and crossed –
So hastily knotted – eyes raw, fingers bleary.
