Because Blogger's "Adult warning" often goes into a perpetual loop (isn't working properly), I will be making all new posts at my WordPress blog. You can follow it even if you do not have a WordPress Account. There're also my Twitter and my Tumblr blog, my Facebook and my Google+ page and my group.
(Update: Blogger hasn't fixed its problem with the "adult warning". Will go back to posting at my WordPress blog)

The South Country

A lost thing could I never find,
Nor a broken thing mend:
And I fear I shall be all alone
When I get towards the end.
Who will there be to comfort me
Or who will be my friend?


From the poem The South Country, by Hilaire Belloc (1870- 1952)




This painting I found in this intriguing blog post.  Although the painter is familiar, yet his name escapes me.  Quam senex sum.

It was signed. The artist is apparently Eric Ravilious.
