Favorite Autumn quote:

In honor of the equinox and first official days of fall:

"Earth's crammed with heaven, And every common bush afire with God; And only he who sees takes off his shoes; The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries."

--Elizabeth Barrett Browning

The gorgeous calligraphy and illustration is by Marie Angel - who does astonishingly beautiful work.

I love a perfect marriage of image and words. (Very funny "story" below...)

I find her work breathtaking - and perfect in nearly all cases.

The illustration is as lovely as the verse and vice versa.
