Lady Jo: Merci … et puis je reste silencieux dans la nuit … Belle journée

Lissa: Stillness and silence ... those are qualities I have been finding attractive lately ... Eliot, from Ash Wednesday, "teach us to care and not to care / teach us to be still"....

the heart of night... i imagine a couple of lovers sleeping in the darkest and warmest room of the house, quietly breathing, trying to dream the same dream together, as Horacio and Maga in Cortazar's Rayuela (have you read it? you would fall in love with her, immediately - Maga).

Martin: Yes, I think I stopped being afraid of the dark a long time ago ... now my fear is that it contains nothing ... and then nothing ...

James Owens said...

Sorlil: Oh! :-)

Roxana: You invoke such an attractive scene --- the night this photo was taken was perfect for such thoughts of warmth and closeness in the winter dark, as, indeed, tonight is perfect, as well. I have not read Rayuela, though I have loved some of Cortazar's others -- I will look for it :-)
