Nothing is fixed….2

‘For nothing is fixed, forever and forever and forever, it is not fixed.     The earth is always shifting, the sea does not cease to grind down rock.    Generations do not cease to be born, and we are responsible to them because we are the only witnesses they have.    The sea rises, the light fails, lovers cling to each other, and children cling to us.    The moment we cease to hold each other, the sea engulfs us and the light goes out…..’

James Baldwin (1924-1987) A vital literary voice during the era of civil rights activism in the 1950s and ’60s.

    Gorgeous Janet. So pleased you’ve reblogged it as I had not seen the original. And I studied and came to love James Baldwin when I studied American Literature and the Civil Rights Movement.

    This is lovely, and a good reminder. The earth is amazing…to think we are on that planet, floating through space and orbiting a ball of fire, sure puts things in perspective. Love the quote and your child, and as always the beautiful
