Speaking to Me

If the sun and moon should doubt,
They'd immediately go out.
To be in a passion you good may do,
But no good if a passion is in you. 

from Auguries of Innocence by William Blake


  1. i needed to be near you right now. as they take the vote. as they debate and decide.
    breathless...watching, wondering, waiting.
    what is the price of a life?

    PASSED!!!!!! PASSED!!!!!!PASSED!!!!

  2. The bill was passed. It's true that it's been watered down too much from what it was at the beginning but nobody ever said it was going to be a walk in the park. Many thanks for that poem, I love Blake. I hope you and yours are fine.

    Greetings from London.

  3. I hope this bill helps your family. I am not a fan of what it became, but now that it is, I will look for what is good in it.

  4. I am glad that our president has a passion.

  5. I love this image of Blake's notebook, and share Rebecca's sentiments as well. I wish it hadn't been watered down, but without some compromise, I know it wouldn't have passed. We have made history, and I am so proud of us.

  6. I'm on the "wish it hadn't been watered down" bandwagon but have decided that it is, at least, a start. I'm greatly admiring those democrats who signed on even with threatened repercussions. They decided to follow in the footsteps of long-ago democrats who bravely gave us Social Security and Medicare.
