and darkness the right hand of light.

Two are one,

lying together like lovers in kemmer,

like hands joined together,

like the end and the way.

Ursula Kroeber Le Guin, 21 October 1929–22 January 2018

  1. A lovely tribute, Dame Eleanor.
    And congrats on sending the article out! I thought I had replied to that, but didn’t.

  2. Thank you both—you did! This template from WordPress disappears comments after a couple of weeks; they’re there if you click on the post, but the post header doesn’t show that there are comments. I find this annoying; it’s somehow embedded in the template, not something I have been able to change by poking around the settings. Someday I’ll get around to changing the template again. I wish I had just stuck to the old one, which I can’t find in their list any longer.

Comments are now closed.
