Why? I like to write, and I like to talk, and this seems like a nice fusion of the two.
Why now? I just got a new sewing machine and a new camera, and between the two of them I am feeling the need to get some images out there.
What? Not sure yet. I admire those people who are able to pick a focus for their blog and just run with it, but I think this will probably end up being a bit of a hodge podge. I don't stick to any one thing long enough to make an entire blog out of it.
I picked my blog name from my favorite stanza in T.S. Eliot's The Wasteland. Yes, I am nerdy like that. Get used to it. Here's the quote:
|'You gave me hyacinths first a year ago;||35|
|'They called me the hyacinth girl.'|
|—Yet when we came back, late, from the Hyacinth garden,|
|Your arms full, and your hair wet, I could not|
|Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither|
|Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,||40|
|Looking into the heart of light, the silence.|
|Od' und leer das Meer.|
