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...

Today's work, already dry & mounted. #doitfortheprocess #calledtobecreative #watercolour #schmincke #ultramarine #abstract Halfway through painting a robin for a friend (I'd promised a copy, only to discover I'd destroyed the original). These A3 acrylic sheets are great for small studies. I can use the right hand side as a palette and just wipe it all clean. #doitfortheprocess #calledtobecreative #watercolour #robin #schmincke English Roses. They've taken a little water damage this week with a few summer storms. But I walk past these beauties on my way into the office ☀️⚡️☀️ #roses #lakedistrict #simplethings #peach Sitting on the summit of Hallin Fell on Friday night, waiting for the sun to set. A flask of hot tea and the whole lake to myself. Cannot think of a better stress buster after a long (hot) week in the office.. 🌿🍃🌱 #lakedistrict #Ullswater #keepitwild #inthemoment #simplethings Last night after a very hot day, I popped up Hallin Fell to catch the sunset, this was as I left at about 10pm, last shot down Ullswater. 💙 #Ullswater #lakedistrict #eden #fareasternfells A shot of Alnmouth Beach from Midsummers Day. #Northumberland #Alnmouth #beach #pink
