Contemplative Monday



While at brunch yesterday at a Jane's On the Common, I noticed this quote on the wall:





William Blake was always one of my favourite poets. I remember doing an essay in university on one of his poems.....I think it was 'The Fly'. He was a really 'heady' guy and I loved his work.

  1. I love the quote! Very deep. I always tell The Hub, "I think you're thinking you know what I'm thinking." Not very deep, LOL Have a great day.

  2. Those prices of desserts... is that one piece or quantity?
    Yes, good quote. Rose colored glasses have been around a very long time :-)

    Have a great day!

  3. Hey, I've eaten at Jane's on the Common -- great place, great food! And I love William Blake too. He was 200 years before his time, the poor bastard.

  4. Jim, I'm reading, and thinking, but just can't think of a thing to say that doesn't sound pretentious. Thanks for the brain exercise.

  5. I love it too. And Blake wrote one of my favorites as well: To see a World in a Grain of Sand and Heaven in a Wild Flower.....etc.--Inger

  6. I love his work too. Poe and Whitman are two others I adore. Do you find sea glass along the shore. I love the feel of it.

    Good Days,

  9. Good thought, but I have a bigger problem with what "seems to be" going on with those desserts--They all sound wonderful and I'm sure worth every penny!! :-))

  10. The quote is very nice. But now I'm craving warm gingerbread with rum sauce. Forgive me for being so shallow, but did you have dessert?

  11. I was hoping someone would ask! Yes, I had dessert.....the gingerbread with rum sauce!!!! So good, Terry.
    That price is for a slice Sharon. Yes, a little pricey we thought too!
