Amidst the rocks

Gannet Girl has posted an excerpt from T.S. Eliot's poignant Ash Wednesday (or read the entire poem here). It reminded me of this photo I took last summer on Cape Ann - near where Eliot summered as a boy.

I used a bit of Eliot in a piece I wrote last night: "Human kind cannot bear very much reality." (From Burnt Norton).

  1. I just posted about our Ash Wednesday service. Had I remembered that line from Burnt Norton, I would have used it for the title.
