' I think, that if I touched the earth,
It would crumble;
It is so sad and beautiful,
So tremulously like a dream.'


This blog's name is based on a line from Dylan Thomas's 'Clown in the Moon' - a strange and intriguing short poem which describes the earth as a wondrous, dreamlike thing so delicate, ‘so sad and beautiful’, that it would crumble at the slightest touch. I believe there's something of this intangibility present in  how we inspire, and are inspired by, the world around us and in the fragile beauty of what is created.

I hope to explore this intangible essence as it is embodied in arts and culture, whether reviewing and celebrating artistic triumphs, bringing forgotten curios back to light, or simply noticing the good - and sometimes the bad – in how we act to others, since it is through these things that we perhaps express ourselves most truly.
