"If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things in nature have a message you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive"
Eleanora Duse (Italian Actress 1858-1924)
I couldn't find any blue sky in which to rejoice yesterday evening as the promised storm approached. But to my surprise there was a little patch of colour in the western sky, just as the power went out at 5 pm.
And I can rejoice, too, that the quotes of an actress who died 90 years ago are still alive.
