"Oh the miserable folly of it all – that there should be an element of ostentation in grief!"
Letters from a Stoic (LetterLXIII)
"To be so lost and not have the strength to regret it."
Brett Whiteley (Australian, 1939-1992), The Divided Unity, 1974. Screenprint, 66.5 x 93.5 cm. Edition 63/70.

"I want to change my punctuation. I long for exclamation marks, but I’m drowning in ellipses."
"My hours are married to shadow."
I am learning peacefulness, lying by myself quietly
As the light lies on these white walls, this bed, these hands.
I am nobody.
— Sylvia Plath, from “Tulips,” Ariel. Faber & Faber Poetry, 2010
