What Caught Her Eye #7

Continuing my new series for Fridays: 
the contents of that Smythson notebook,
one page at a time.
"There is no despair so absolute as
that which comes with the first
moments of out first great sorrow,
when we have not yet known 
what it is to have suffered and
be healed, to have despaired and
recovered hope."
George Eliot
1819-1890
