A follow up to my tiny video-curio SPARKLE (about PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK, THE VIRGIN SUICIDES and Carol Morley’s THE FALLING), a new remix-comparison of moments in Jonathan MIller’s ALICE IN WONDERLAND (BBC, 1966): vimeo.com/157653540). Also related to this video: EFFACE: vimeo.com/104309443.
William Wordsworth. 1770–1850
Reordered verses from
Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood
Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:
The Soul that rises with us, our life's Star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar…
THERE was a time when meadow, grove, and stream,
The earth, and every common sight,
To me did seem
Apparell'd in celestial light,
The glory and the freshness of a dream.
It is not now as it hath been of yore;—
Turn wheresoe'er I may,
By night or day,
The things which I have seen I now can see no more.
