AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Joy's.

Leibovitz, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, 2016


In warmth, light, lasting, equal the divine.
       Fire ever doth aspire,
And makes all like itself, turns all to fire,
But ends in ashes ; which these cannot do,
For none of these is fuel, but fire too.
This is joy's bonfire, then, where love's strong arts
Make of so noble individual parts
One fire of four inflaming eyes, and of two loving hearts.

John Donne, from "Eclogue"
