Delirium/бред

Inspired by Nicolai V.  Gorgol's The Portrait
Printmaking

 с тем, чтобы рассмотреть эти чудные глаза, 
и с ужасом заметил, что они точно глядят на него. 
Это уже не была копия с натуры, это 
была та странная живость, которою бы озарилось 
лицо мертвеца, вставшего из могилы. Свет ли месяца, 
несущий с собой бред мечты и 
облекающий все в иные образы, противоположные 
положительному дню (sic), или что другое было причиною 
тому...

He again approached the portrait 
to look closer at those wonderful eyes, 
and noticed, to his horror, that they were actually staring at him.  
This was no longer a copy from nature; it 
was the kind of life that could have lit up 
the face of a dead man risen from the grave.  Whether
it was the moonlight which brought with it delirium of a dream and 
draped everything in different shapes contrary to 
the certainty of daylight (sic), or whether there was another reason 
for it. . .

Walking through Clouds

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
