A Luminous Halo

"Life is not a series of gig lamps symmetrically arranged; life is a luminous halo, a semi-transparent envelope surrounding us from the beginning of consciousness to the end." --Virginia Woolf

Smith ’69, Purdue ’75. Anarchist; agnostic. Writer. Steward of the Pascal Emory house, an 1871 Second-Empire Victorian; of Sylvie, a 1974 Mercedes-Benz 450SL; and of Taz, a purebred Cockador who sets the standard for her breed. Happy enough for the present in Massachusetts, but always looking East.

My Hairdo

I like stone, especially old statues of beasts with odd expressions. Italy happens to be full of them. Here's a lion that qualifies, guarding the square of the Basilica di Santa Chiara in Assisi .

Not only that, he's got exactly the same hairdo as I have!

Is that lion suffering from a hard night or is he just stoned?
