Here's another from Gilbert Keith...

Chesterton (ILNA 15 July 1922):

Art is born when the temporary touches
the eternal; the shock of beauty is when the
irresistible force hits the immovable post...



I don't usually post political
commentary, but I thought
I'd state the obvious anyway.

Thanks to CC @ The Crescat
for the link.

What I'm reading

The Evidential Power of Beauty:
Science and Theology Meet,
by Thomas Dubay.

An apt presentation of the subject & its
many sub-categories, from our Creator's
tangible imaginings -

At least those He's let us know a bit about.

Some of my favorite things

I received for my b'day this year:

1) A poem:

By Ernestine Cobern Beyer,
written for her daughters, sent to me by
her daughter Barbara (Beyer Malley),
my new adopted sister! :D


In love's most secret alchemy, divine,

I bore you. You are mine—and yet not mine.

Ancestral patterns blending with the new

Designed the special pattern that is You.

So did the present and the past devise

Your fair young face, your tender, laughing eyes!

Amazed, I look upon your grace and mirth

As might at some sweet flower the marveling earth.

Barbara is currently working on another
book of her mother's poetry, which I've loved
since I was a child. Then...

2) a link:

From Thomas - coincidentally, to the very
same poem of Ernestine's that I read when I
was a kid, called The Laughing Willow.
Thomas, I got more hits off that one link
than I have all year! XD


3) Halo :

by Beyoncé.
It's not easy, but I'm working on it:)

& forgive my unintentional omission,
but I also got...

4) a visit from dear
Saint Nick:D
