Its been a bit busy around here, and I got off schedule… But I think this is great.

I came across this little gem of an essay and I wanted share it. It is attributed to Fiona MacLeod. “Fiona MacLeod” is a pseudonym of William Sharp (1855-1905). Sharp was a member of the Order of the Golden Dawn and an associate of Swinburne and of W. B. Yeats. Fiona, as it turns out, was more than a mere pseudonym for Sharp, and something close to an alternate personality.
MacLeod begins the essay:
“I know one who, asked by a friend desiring more intimate knowledge as to what influences had shaped her inward life, answered at once, with that sudden vision of insight which reveals more than the vision of thought, ‘The Wind, Silence, and Love.’”
