Here’s a bit of an extended post—since my regular photographer now lives in another state, it’s hard to document as much as I’d like!
This past weekend, I had a blissful couple days of frolicking around coastal Virginia, surrounded by some of my favorite things: good company, good food, and cats. Lots of cats.
I have been here before,
But when or how I cannot tell:
I know the grass beyond the door,
The sweet keen smell,
The sighing sound, the lights around the shore.
You have been mine before–
How long ago I may not know:
But just when at that swallow’s soar
Your neck turned so,
Some veil did fall,–I knew it all of yore.
Has this been thus before?
And shall not thus time’s eddying flight
Still with our lives our love restore
In death’s despite
And day and night yield one delight once more?
–verse by Dante Gabriel Rosetti (“Sudden Light”)
