HEART OF LIGHT

DATE

OCTOBER 2016



”ANGHIARI IS MEDIEVAL, A SLEEVE SLOPING DOWN A STEEP HILL, SUDDENLY SWEEPING OUT TO THE EDGE OF A CLIFF, AND DWINDLING. BUT FAR UP THE MOUNTAIN, BEHIND THE TOWN, WE TOO WERE SWEPT OUT, OUT BY THE WIND, ALONE WITH THE TUSCAN GRASS.

WIND HAD BEEN BLOWING ACROSS THE HILLS FOR DAYS, AND EVERYTHING NOW WAS GRAYING GOLD WITH DUST, EVERYTHING WE SAW, EVEN SOME SMALL CHILDREN SCAMPERING ALONG A ROAD, TWITTERING ITALIAN TO A SMALL CAGED BIRD.

MANY MEN HAVE SEARCHED ALL OVER TUSCANY AND NEVER FOUND WHAT I FOUND THERE, THE HEART OF THE LIGHT ITSELF SHELLED AND LEAVED, BALANCING ON FILAMENTS THEMSELVES FALLING. THE SECRET OF THIS JOURNEY IS TO LET THE WIND BLOW ITS DUST ALL OVER YOUR BODY, TO LET IT GO ON BLOWING, TO STEP LIGHTLY, LIGHTLY ALL THE WAY THROUGH YOUR RUINS, AND NOT TO LOSE ANY SLEEP OVER THE DEAD, WHO SURELY WILL BURY THEIR OWN, DON'T WORRY.”

― JAMES WRIGHT - THE JOURNEY
