Sights and sounds

There are images that I see with my heart which, I hope, is not quite as corny as it sounds.  The second illustration below feels like a boot to the chest, yet in a good way, which may seem unlikely.  Or maybe more precisely, some things grab me by the throat.  The sights and sounds here today fall into that not-entirely-rare category.  I am swept away by the imaginations of others, humbled and agog at the sweet morsels my species find to pull from the soup of eternity in which we all paddle.

Original art by Quint Buchholz, shared by Alice Vegrova on FB. If the work interests you - it fascinates me - do a Google Image search and see how many other bloggers have fallen under his spell.
For the sounds portion of our program, I took cues from Brain Pickings' Literary Jukebox which introduced me to First Aid Kit and the sisters' "Wills of the River."

Robyn - Don't the images, doesn't Mr. Buchholz, speak in the language of magic? Such a talent for making the unseen, the murmurings of a mind's corners, so real. Enjoy. xo

Angella - If we were able to filter out all the other influences, all the chatter that pulls us away from our hearts, we would likely stumble about in constant wonder, glad celebration. xo
