What survives

“Who says that all must vanish?
Who knows, perhaps the flight
of the bird you wound remains,
and perhaps flowers survive
caresses in us, in their ground.

It isn't the gesture that lasts,
but it dresses you again in gold
armor –from breast to knees–
and the battle was so pure
an Angel wears it after you.”
(R M Rilke)


After being buried for a while (hmm, it smells strange;-) this wonderful painting of Ted Barlow (Figures at St. Dogmael's Abbey) [photoblog.com] has decided to rise again and set out on a journey…

Thank you soooo much Ted… this is for you [youtube.com]
(have not yet pinned it on to the wall, wanted to know first if you like your baby`s new home:-)

Ps. Ted recently had his degree show in Wales and will have an exhibition in London: from 29th of June to 11th of July (9:30 – 17:00)
Chelsea Gallery
Old Town Hall (first floor)
Kings Road
London SW53 5EZ
