Ah, lives of men! When prosperous they glitter – Like a fair picture; when misfortune comes – A wet sponge at one blow has blurred the painting. Aeschylus
I spent some time searching quotes this morning looking for a starting point to accompany the word “blur” and of the many pages of quotations I read this one by Aeschylus stuck with me all day. Walking through Westlake Park I knew why as the juxtaposition of the big department store full of glittery merchandise, a brightly colored food truck promoting small bites and happy times then a huddled homeless man trying to disappear into the stones brought the ancient Greek quote into modern-day.
