Quote of the Week - Corelli

Kindred Spirits by Asher B. Durand

"Life has two moments of ecstasy, one when the spirit catches sight of truth, the other when it meets a kindred spirit."

This one came from Saba Malik on FB. I love it. i think there is a third possible moment - when the two moments occur simultaneously. 

Kindred Spirits, the painting above has an interesting story and connects painter Thomas Cole with his friend, writer and poet, William Cullen Bryant. Marie Corelli is also an interesting figure - worth investigating, surely!

Which brings us back to National Poetry Month! I hope you are celebrating well!
