An imaginative interpretation of the story of Cupid and Psyche with characters who are mythic but also realistic enough for sympathy.

Painting the Modern Garden by Ann Dumas
Rate this book
Clear rating
Packed with images, some of them two-page spreads of details from the paintings. The book also has short essays that provide a bit of cultural context, one of the most moving points being how the gardens were being made and painted during war.

Simone Weil
“Justice. To be ever ready to admit that another person is something quite different from what we read when he is there (or when we think about him). Or rather, to read in him that he is certainly something different, perhaps something completely different from what we read in him.
Every being cries out silently to be read differently.”
Simone Weil, Gravity and Grace

Nan Shepherd
“So simply to look on anything, such as a mountain, with the love that penetrates to its essence, is to widen the domain of being in the vastness of non-being. Man has no other reason for his existence.”
Nan Shepherd, The Living Mountain

Italo Calvino
“The inferno of the living is not something that will be; if there is one, it is what is already here, the inferno where we live every day, that we form by being together. There are two ways to escape suffering it. The first is easy for many: accept the inferno and become such a part of it that you can no longer see it. The second is risky and demands constant vigilance and apprehension: seek and learn to recognize who and what, in the midst of inferno, are not inferno, then make them endure, give them space.”
Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities

Sy Montgomery
“Go out into the world where your heart calls you. The blessings will come, I promise you that. I wish for you the insight to recognize the blessings as such, and sometimes it's hard. But you'll know it's a blessing if you are enriched and transformed by the experience. So be ready. There are great souls and teachers everywhere. It's your job to recognize them.”
Sy Montgomery

Robert Macfarlane
“Words act as compass; place-speech serves literally to en-chant the land – to sing it back into being, and to sing one’s being back into it.”
Robert Macfarlane, Landmarks
