“I only went out for a walk,  and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in”

Olivia & Sarah, 2009

“Know you what it is to be a child?  It is to be something very different from the man of today.  It is to have a spirit yet streaming from the waters of baptism; it is to believe in love, to believe in loveliness, to believe in belief; it is to be so little that the elves can reach to whisper in your ear; it is to turn pumpkins into coaches and mice into horses, lowness into loftiness, and nothing into everything, for each child has its fairy godmother in its own soul.”

Quotation by Francis Thompson (English poet, 1859-1907) 

Ken Burns’ new PBS series on our National Parks starts September 27, 2009.  His cinematology is poetry in motion.  Watch clips here…
