.. the flight to egypt, revisited..

Edwin Longsden Long RA was an English genre, history,  and portrait painter.

there are many pictures at this house, two dimensional and more. how can I love one

child above another?

I had only one, so that was easy, then questioned if I loved the late arrival more, I said no just different.

 

so I talk out loud instead of writing .

a new prose. I  talk of formative years, the safe place.

 

russell coates museum. have you been there? it was free on thursdays a haven from the rain,

the

pain.

 

indoor fish pond, quiet on the stairs, to the edwin long gallery. the flight to egypt. looking

back now, I never thought of it religious.  immense it covered the wall.

 

I use the past tense, yet it is still in place.

 

on googling I see  the topic is biblical, I remember the procession, the faces, the space  as

if his meaning was hidden to me.

 

now by choice it is.

 

do I make such pictures?  no.

 

weird stuff as if installed in a museum.

 

crying.

 

sbm.

 

****

 

on returning see the back ground

building. find have drawn this some

time, without concious memory.
