Diary 261: The Cult of Beauty

wild geese

you do not have to be good.
you do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert,
you only have to let the soft animal of your
body love what it loves.
tell me about despair, yours, and i will tell you
meanwhile the world goes on.
meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of
the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean-
blue air,
are heading home again.
whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild gees, harsh and
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

the cult of beauty i call life

it's been a beautiful week/ weekend! met so many cute people on press days:) i had a brilliant friday with an andrew, a stunning morning walk in dulwich woods come saturday. and sunday was hanging at franklins which i adore doing, here i create a collage i call hope and did some violette drawing and read fairground & flow.

endowed with these wonderful qualities from
