A Desk Abroad

As a writer and wanderer, all sorts of things wander or march, dance or trip, across my desk. These are some of them.

“What does it mean to be a man? Christ is the supreme example. He was strong, and He was pure, because His sole aim in life was to be obedient to the Father. His very obedience made Him most manly- responsible, committed, courageous, courteous, and full of love. A Christian man’s obedience to God will make Him more of a man than anything else in the world.”

"In Bohemia" by Arthur Symons

DRAWN blinds and flaring gas within,
And wine, and women, and cigars;
Without, the city’s heedless din;
Above, the white unheeding stars.

And we, alike from each remote,
The world that works, the heaven that waits,
Con our brief pleasures o’er by rote,
The favourite pastime of the Fates.

We smoke, to fancy that we dream,
And drink, a moment’s joy to prove,
And fain would love, and only seem
To love because we cannot love.

Draw back the blinds, put out the light;
‘Tis morning, let the daylight come.
God! how the women’s cheeks are white,
And how the sunlight strikes us dumb!

Buckets of love at the nursery. I just want to lie down in the hydrangeas and laugh at their big beautiful heads.
