"'I have been told that beneath the Throne is an angel in the form of a rooster, with talons of pearl and a breast of green chrysolite.'"
From a translation featured on David Larsen's Writing Gathering Field.
As ever, too much to do with work and school - I was up before the rooster crowed.
But I hope you are well, and happy.

"...the powdery glow floating
the street with evening—saffron, rose, sienna
bricks, matte gold, to be the good steam
clanking pipes, that warm music glazing the panes,
each fugitive moment the heaven we choose to make."
From "Suite for Emily" by Lynda Hull
It's hard to find the time to stop and look at things, even in the middle of looking at things, especially in the middle of lots of looking at things.
But I did, there, in Sienna.

"Words entering almost the sense of touch
Ferreting themselves out of their dark hutch—
‘These things are not secrets but mysteries,’ ... "
From "Glanmore Sonnets" by Seamus Heaney
Heading far out of town today, back around February 9.
Have fun, stay warm, hug often!

"I can’t remember the tale,
but hear his voice still, a well
of dark water, a prayer."
From "The Gift" by Li-Young Lee
It's been a few cold, wet days in a row here. Much ado at work, as ever. Had some friends in over the holidays, and had lots of fun and girl chat while driving around to places like this.
Although the Mur's still not feeling great, he's still able to tease me and the cats. Classes are about to start, and I'll be on the road for business in a couple of weeks. I've got a new lil' pocket camera I am learning to use in preparation for a trip, at the end of the biz trip, to go to the Uffizi and see this up close. I'll be staying with a good friend, who texted "This will be EPIC!"
(I hope it won't be this kind of epic.)
The pic above was taken with the new camera - I'm still getting the hang of it, but it's smaller than a deck of cards, so it'll be fine for travel.
Stay warm, and thanks for stopping by!
