A few quotes came up over Ash Wednesday – a day of solidarity with life that extends past death.
Robert Southwell –
Not where I breathe, but where I love, I live;
Not where I love, but where I am, I die…
And Isaiah 21:11 –
Someone calls to me from Seir,
“Watchman, what is left of the night?
Watchman, what is left of the night?”
The watchman replies,
“Morning is coming, but also the night.
If you would ask, then ask;
and come back yet again.”
An early title for Soulographie came from Genesis: “And there was evening and then there was day” – meant to include the notion we’ve been talking about – that the truth is –interdisciplinary, that our watch includes both the day and the night.
