When I Consider How My Light Is Spent
“I have been all the way around this mountain.
I tell you, it has no other side.”
The possibly meaningful conclusion of a brief new Notebook entry, in which I borrow Milton’s line, When I consider how my light is spent, in the vain hope of sounding intelligent.
Recently linked: Yesterday’s Donne to Dryden entry has elicited a nice book recommendation from halfway around the globe.
Thanks, meanwhile, to Doug P. Baker for his comments on Donne to Dryden and Religion is a Funny Thing. His blog, Triocentric, where sonnets have held sway for some time now, certainly does not lack enthusiasm.
As the Conversation continues, we find a good use for empty tomato sauce cans.
