At the Heart of the Gospel

"Those deceive themselves who believe that union with God consists in ecstasies or raptures, and in the enjoyment of Him. For it consists in nothing except the surrender and subjection of our will with our thoughts, words and actions, to the will of God and it is perfect when the will finds itself so separated from everything, and attached only to that of God, so that every one of its movements is solely and purely the volition of God." -- St. Teresa of Avila

Medium: one of those pencils with an eraser on the end. Drew this while watching Disney's 1979 movie, The Black Hole on youtube. Hadn't seen it for, well, I don't know. I could only endure it by watching it in parts over some nights. As you can see by the sketch it was rather traumatizing.

Tarkovsky Tuesday

End sequence from Stalker.

How I love your eyes, my friend,
With their radiant play of fire,
When you lift them fleetingly
And like lightning in the skies
Your gaze sweeps swiftly round.

But there is charm more powerful still
In eyes downward cast
For the moment of a passionate kiss,
When through lowered eyelids glows
The sombre, dull flame of desire.

Fyodor Tyuchev, 1803 - 1873
(Translated by Kitty Hunter-Blair)

That is the poem which the girl (the daughter of the title character) recites in the above clip that doesn't have the English subtitles.
