An Equinoctial Solstice of the Soul

Haystack Rock: Cannon Beach OR
CC Jean Stimmell: September '13

 “There is an illusion of ‘end,’ a stasis seemingly like death. But it is only an illusion. Everything, at this crucial point, lies in the attitude which we assume towards the moment.”  *

I am indebted to Maria Popova, master cultural chronicler of our times, for the above quote by Henry Miller, written at a time around WWII, according to Maria, reflecting on a cultural era much like what we are experiencing today, a transitional period Miller calls “an equinoctial solstice of the soul.”
