Nothing doing blog-wise as the new semester gets rolling. But to tide you over, here's a quote from Edmund Burke:
Those persons who creep into the hearts of most people, who are chosen as the companions of their softer hours, are never persons of shining qualities, nor strong virtues. It is rather the soft green of the soul on which we rest our eyes, that are fatigued with beholding more glaring objects.
Which recalls to my mind Canto 83: "in the drenched tent there is quiet / sered eyes are at rest / the rain beat as with colour of feldspar / blue as the flying fish off Zoagli."
