The psalms seems to have three main sections each with a different mood: vv 1-3, 4-6 and 7-9. I'm not going to describe those moods in words, but will leave it to you to decide whether my representation speaks to you of these shifts.
The whole thing is swathed in teardrops, and there is a kind of macabre name tape running up and down: Virgil, Aeneid, I. 462: 'Sunt lacrimae rerum et mentem mortalia tangunt; 'Things bring tears, and mortal matters touch the mind'. or perhaps 'there's tears in everything, and mortality affects the mind'.
|Happy is she|
|Goodbye and thankyou for coming!|
And thankyou to all my helpers, friends, relative, Facebook friends, encouragers, and especially to Ian & Sheila - Ian for making the boards on which to display them, and Sheila for being my companion-critic. "What do you think of this bit, Sheila? Shall I.... or....?"
And now for the party........
