It’s been a long day

Be like the bird, who
Halting in his flight
On limb too slight
Feels it give way beneath him,
Yet sings
Knowing he hath wings.

— Victor Hugo, “The Bird,” Twilight Songs (Les Chants du crépuscule), published in 1835.

  7. I’m a great collector of anything angel…. mostly cards (for space reasons), but also books and what really impresses me are the books on angels in cemeteries. France is a great place for finding them!
