Deep Silence

...the proud ones are
but for a moment,
like an evening dream in springtime.
Heike Monogatari
(14th Century)

“The evenings.  Such peace.  Sounds like the splash of a duck landing on the water, the scream of an osprey, came across miles with a clarity that was first incredible – and then mysterious because, like a cry in an empty house, it seemed to make the silence, the peace, more intense.  Almost as if sounds were there to distinguish the silence, and not the reverse.”  John Fowles (The Magus)

Owl Andirons

I recently purchased these antique owl andirons which were made between 1920-30.  They are quite rare I have learned.  As a kid I spent many enjoyable nights listening to stories, told in the twinkling light of owl andirons just like these that were owned by a mentor, now long time gone.  In the warmth of the fire, through the cool autumn nights, the voices of story tellers who wove the measure of word in my youthful mind, are heard again and come alive for me.
