[Commonplace books: Thomas Farnaby, 17th-century]
The force behind the movement of time is a mourning that will not be comforted. That is why the first even is known to have been an expulsion, and the last is hoped to be a reconciliation and return. So memory pulls us forward, so prophecy is only brilliant memory--there will be a garden where all of us as one child will sleep in our mother Eve, hooped in her ribs and staved by her spine.
