the pilgrim soul in you

When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;

How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face;

And bending down beside the glowing bars,
Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead
And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.
— William Butler Yeats

Yesterday we saw the movie "Mr. Turner", about British painter J.M.W. Turner. A lovely movie. His paintings are masterpieces. Below is one of Venice.

Turner enjoys a reputation as one of the finest and most original landscape painters in English history and Turner's style laid the foundations for Impressionism. Venice was the inspiration for some of Turner's greatest works including this painting entitled  “The Grand Canal, Venice”  below, painted in 1835. (Oil on canvas, 36 by 48 inches; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York)

hello monday

Yesterday the 10th annual ride, walk and swim for the roses took place in Curacao. I believe about 8000 people participated - which, for a tiny island, is something quite impressive. So it is a great way to start the week - energized, positive and hmmm with a bit of muscle ache.

Have a great one. Smile loads.

I'd like to share a few more on the beautiful photographs from tiny atlas with you this morning. These are taken by emily nathan.
