The Muse

"Our art, its theory as well as its practice, is altogether a gift of God, Who gives it when and to whom He elects: it is not of him that wills, or of him that runs, but simply through the mercy of God."

A.E. Waite, trans.

Ode

We are the music makers.
We are the dreamers of dreams,
wandering by lone sea-breakers
and sitting by desolate streams.
We are the world-losers
and the world-forsakers
on whom the pale moon gleams.

Yet we are the movers and shakers
of the world, forever, it seems...

Arthur William Edgar O'Shaughnessy

Jumping Ship

"Don't ever get out of the boat.

...unless you're going all the way."

The best things cannot be told."

For God

Seymour Glass
Franny and Zooey
