Excerpt from Thoreau

photo by Wolfgang Stearns

“Many an object is not seen, though it falls within the range of our visual ray, because it does not come within the range of our intellectual ray, i.e., we are not looking for it. So in the larger sense, we find only the world we look for.”

from The Journal 1837-1861 by Henry David Thoreau

Lyrics from the song Bella Donna

And the woman may be awestruck
And the woman may truly care
But the woman is so tired
So the woman disappears
Come in out of the darkness
Bella Donna my soul
Don’t change, baby please don’t change

from the album, Bella Donna by Stevie Nicks, 1980
