Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. Pablo Picasso

THE OLD PROVERBIAL RECOVERY

“Colour is fun, colour is just plain gorgeous, a gourmet meal for the eye, the window of the soul.”

Rachel Wolf.

Life begins on the other side of despair. Jean-Paul Sartre

Still let my tyrants know, I am not doomed to wear Year after year in gloom, and desolate despair; A messenger of Hope comes every night to me, And offers for short life, eternal liberty.

THE GEM 18 JULY 2018 “IT IS AN ANXIOUS, SOMETIMES A DANGEROUS THING TO BE A DOLL. DOLLS CANNOT CHOOSE; THEY CAN ONLY BE CHOSEN; THEY CANNOT ‘DO’; THEY CAN ONLY BE DONE BY.” RUMER GODDEN, THE DOLLS’ HOUSE

“He is the intermediary between us, his audience, the living, and they, the dolls, the undead, who cannot live at all and yet who mimic the living in every detail since, though they cannot speak or weep, still they project those signals of signification we instantly recognize as language.”

― Angela Carter, Wayward Girls and Wicked Women

THE GEM 17 JULY 2018 : “FAËRIE CONTAINS MANY THINGS BESIDES ELVES AND FAYS, AND BESIDES DWARFS, WITCHES, TROLLS, GIANTS, OR DRAGONS;

it holds the seas, the sun, the moon, the sky; and the earth, and all things that are in it: tree and bird, water and stone, wine and bread, and ourselves, mortal men, when we are enchanted.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, Tolkien on Fairy-stories

AND why not fairies in Australia? Why should not our innumerable ferny glades, romantic valleys, mountainous passes, and lonesome glens, be peopled with fays and elves? Why should not Robin Goodfellow be found sitting jauntily astride the gorgeous waratah, or chasing the laughing jackass from its favourite bough? But all in good time. In the generations yet to come, unless the State schools make the little ones too learned, we shall have Australian fairy tales, stories in which goblin, kangaroos and emus, graceful sprites, and bearded magicians, will be found on every Fairyland in Australia.

Illustrated Sydney News and New South Wales Agriculturalist and Grazier, 18 December 1880, p. 3

 

THE GEM 15 JULY 2018 : “HIS RESILIENCY WAS NOT THE RESILIENCY OF THE DUMB BUT OF A LAMB WHO CAN REMEMBER HURT BUT CANNOT SUSTAIN THE ANGER OR THE BITTERNESS THAT BRITTLES THE HEART.” DEAN KOONTZ, BROTHER ODD

“Evening you gather back
all that dazzling dawn has put asunder:
you gather a lamb, gather a kid,
gather a child to its mother.”
