“For they come, the human child,
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than he can understand.”
W. B. Yeats - ‘The Stolen Child'

(Curator: Pandemic Musings and Urgency: “Stolen child, it’s us all isn’t it, stolen from the innocence of our own reality and dragged into the painful ways of our captives. Then one beautiful day the voice of the stolen child cries out No more! We turn our backs and return to the innocent child taking with us the only things worth keeping…. imagination, hope and love as these were were with us always waiting to return us home.” -Comment from a friend on IG this morning-)
