Greetings and Salutations!

Welcome to the longest-running* yet least-read** blog on the internet! Here you'll find me writing about all the things that I write about, which strikes me, just now, as somewhat recursive. In any case, enjoy :)

Metaphysical




If Nature did not take delight in blood,
She would have made more easy ways to good. -Greville

All Hell doth at his presence quake,
though he himselfe for cold doe shake -Southwell

Then, since fortune's favours fade,
You, that in her arms do sleep,
Learn to swim, and not to wade;
For the hearts of kings are deep. -Wotton

...On a huge hill,
Cragged, and steep, Truth stands, and he that will
Reach her, about must, and about must go. -Donne

The thirsty Earth soaks up the rain,
And drinks, and gapes for drink again.  -Cowley

But at my back I always hear
Time's winged chariot hurrying near;
