Sketch and Emily

The Body grows without —
The more convenient way —
That if the Spirit — like to hide
Its Temple stands, alway,

Ajar — secure — inviting —
It never did betray
The Soul that asked its shelter
In solemn honesty

— Emily Dickinson

    What could be better – Emily Dickinson and a rather lovely sketch of you. It complements the poem beautifully.

    The poem is beautiful and the piece of you by the artist is bloody brilliant.I have one of Peta in that position that I have in the mantelpiece if my home as do my favorite muse Allison whom I still think of her after 40 years

    I like that there is a sense of movement in the drawing even though you are seated. I also see you could not leave your background alone after all . . .

      Yes, there is a great sense of movement in Bob’s drawing. That’s what quick sketches demonstrate so well. And I did go back to tinkering with the blog background. Thanks for noticing!
