memoirs, art and fragments by Thomas Milner

Thirty years of life

What separates this picture of me leaning against a vehicle adapted to rolling on sand

From this picture of me sitting in a vehicle adapted to rolling on sand.

ANSWER: ABOUT THIRTY YEARS OF LIFE

Thirty years of life

With its comforts & discomforts

With its rewards & failures

With its health & illnesses

With its boredom & excitements

With its betrayals & constancies

With its joys & sorrows

FLOWERS IN A POT - PAINTING by THOMAS MILNER

 

To see a World in a Grain of Sand

And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,

Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand

And Eternity in an hour.

William Blake, Auguries of Innocence
