And a couple of weeks ago, at ENO‘s miraculous Magic Flute, directed by the ever-inventive Simon McBurney I saw, inside the programme, some of the most haunting, poetic and beautiful images I’ve seen for a long time. They come from a series called Earth Elegies by Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison. One of them particularly touched me, the one that appears here called Visitation, but they are all surprising and miraculous and at the same time true in the way that dreams are true:
- Visitation, Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison
This image haunts me particularly because I am inventing an angel for my novel-in-progress, For the Love of Life. And, perhaps, it’s also an image that suits the time of year.
