Become a Living Soul…

Nor less, I trust,
To them I may have owed another gift,
Of aspect more sublime; that blessed mood,
In which the burthen of the mystery,
In which the heavy and the weary weight
Of all this unintelligible world,
Is lightened—that serene and blessed mood,
In which the affections gently lead us on—
Until, the breath of this corporeal frame
And even the motion of our human blood
Almost suspended, we are laid asleep
In body, and become a living soul:
While with an eye made quiet by the power
Of harmony, and the deep power of joy,
We see into the life of things.

Tintern Abbey, William Wordsworth 1798

  1. I find this image exquisite, Helen. For me it’s not serene as it is for smackedpentax, it’s very evocative of emotion. Timeless, yes. I love the way the line of birds seems to echo the shape of the cloud below.

I would love to know what you thought of this article...

Sitting on the top of Little Mell Fell last Thursday night watching summer slip away behind Clough Head. eating cheese sandwiches for my supper and listening to Band of Horses on my iPhone. Perfection ☀️☀️☀️ #lakedistrict #fujix100t #fujilove #LakeDistrict #fells #sunset #soloadventure The flavours of Autumn in the UK; made an Apple & Blackberry crumble and enjoyed it with lashings of vanilla custard. It feels darker this morning, I just love this time of year.. 🍁🍄🍂🍁🍂🍏 #iphone6 #autumn #fall #crumble #mymonthofsundays Went out on a Kayak today along Derwentwater, slicing through the mist down to Manesty was lovely and swift, getting back upwind was a little harder. Nice blisters and a few good shots, Happy Days 😊💙 #lakedistrict #derwentwater #nicholendmarina #kayak #kayaking #lake #soloadventure Went and sat on the top of Little Mell Fell on Thursday night to eat my supper and watch the sun set on a rather beautiful autumn day. Not a cloud in the sky at all. That could have been the last of the U.K. sunshine for six months (joke) ((I hope not😊))... #iphone6 #lakedistrict #copper #bracken #fells Good Morning October 🍁🍂🎃🍄 #fujixt1 #lakedistrict #thirlmere #timber #autumn On Saturday I hiked around Thirlmere, a nice ten mile leg stretch, nature provided a sweet buffet for me. So nice to be back home just at the beginning of Autumn. #blackberries #autumn #fujixt1 #fujilove #lakedistrict #hedgerow
