Engleza de joi/ Marsh

Marsh = an area of low-lying land which is flooded in wet seasons or at high tide, and typically remains waterlogged at all times.

“You’re a fire person. What you’re most like is marsh-fire; (…) you got witch-oil in your soul.”
Philip Pullman, Northern Lights

She is primarily a teacher of English. Also her mind is lured by goodies like finance, economics, interest rates, the stock market, as she has a hankering for how the money is made. Nevertheless she is a dreamer on a cloud...As dreams cost nothing... In ordinary days she is a word-weaver for everything and everything that breathes. In the best of days she just follows the seasons by means of bike, skis, or roller-skates. She is grateful to all colors of the world and to people who read, laugh, smile and drop a line here, or on her email.

    Interesting that I read todays quote, from the ‘Carnegies of Carnegies’ while sitting in the first Carnegie library to be opened in England.
    We’ve got a lot of bogs (a term we’d use rather than ‘marsh’) here on the Yorkshire moors and Will-o’-the-wisp – marsh-fire – is well known though I prefer to think it’s due to fairies or goblins rather than the scientific explanation. Of course it’ s sometimes due to someone with too much witch-oil in their soul!

    By the way, you didn’t as usual say who the artist is. I find this picture particularly fascinating for some reason.

      I find it mesmerizing. It must be a surreal painter with witch-oil in his soul. 🙂
      I do not know the painter, could be Michael Cheval, but when I checked I couldn’t find this painting. Anyway, I will keep searching..
      Have a lovely day! Give my best to P.

“Language is not like the sun,
heating and scorching
but like the moon
keeping secrets
and the arcane magic of the night
throwing stars
in the lilacs’ claws
till dawn.” -Iulia Halatz
