Apposite Words.

I don’t often quote other people’s writing on this blog, but I sent an e-mail to Ms Wong the other day in which I used the phrase ‘peering beyond the veil.’ She sent me this quotation from some work by Shelley in reply:

Lift not the painted veil which those who live call life

Isn’t that splendid? I think she was telling me that I think too much, but I like it, I really do. I had two pieces of buttered toast instead of one, in celebration. Now all I have to do is get through tomorrow.
