A poem (of Yeats) (an excerpt).
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
- Life Before Death - This sombre series of portraits taken of people before and after they had died is a challenging and poignant study. The work by German photographer Walter Schels and his partner Beate Lakotta, who recorded interviews with the subjects in their final days, reveals much about dying - and living.
- Ministry is touring for the last time ever. I hope to be at the Philly show on April 29.
- What's up with me and poetry today? T.S. Eliot's 'The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock'.
