Life Imitates Art

"Life comes before literature, as the material always comes before the work. The hills are full of marble before the world blooms with statues." --Phillips Brooks

Do you ever have dripping-with-irony weeks? The past few have been like that here. There are so many things going on internally and externally in my life, and then I read something or experience something that just seems too. . . too contrived, almost. Irony at it's finest. Feeling like I'm living out the plot of a postmodern novel or French movie. Surreal.

Thanks for the link. I'm encouraged to learn that people I respect find value in Brandywine Books. May the Lord bless you, the Discoshaman, and the Ukraine.

Thank you! Honestly, though, the quote is beautiful and "Life comes before literature" is an echo of some of the conversations Hubby and I have had lately.
