A Room With No View

"You need a room with no view so imagination can meet memory in the dark.."

--Annie Dillard (from "A Writing Life")


"Say you have seen something. You have seen an ordinary bit of what is real, the infinite fabric of time that eternity shoots through, and time's soft-skinned people working and dying under slowly shifting stars. Then what?"

-- from Annie Dillard's essay, "This is the Life"

    Very elegant.
  • Jer*ry 9y

    That's a powerful piece of work.
  • 0 W8ing 9y

    That sentiment is Such a part of my experience since flickr, since I now have a constant 'wall' to exhibit on, here.

    (Lately, I have to remember to use the door, once in awhile, for the fresh air and groceries.. lol.)

    Thank you for reminding us of this potent principle, and for your frequent inspiring applications of it, Maureen.

    thanks, all. AlterredEgo - not sure I belong to that group, but I guess thatt's easily fixed, eh?
  • Christine 9y

    Very interesting and beautiful collage. I was struck by the quote. My home (and photo) office has a balcony door that looks out over the woods and I have been very aware of how distracting and intrusive the beautiful view can be.
  • lastpolishprincess 9y

    Absolutely nice abstract.
  • Nikki Clark 9y

    real beautiful work, montana, love the dove!
  • Liz 9y

    This is beautiful. Wonderful colours.
  • Jennifer Lamb 9y

    This is a wonderfully rich collage.

    Annie Dillard's "Pilgrim at Tinker Creek" is a book I was moved by over two decades ago.
