My collaborator Katie and I were scouring several sources in the public domain to adapt into a musical, and we found The Day Boy and The Night Girl in an anthology of Victorian fairy tales, edited by Jack Zipes. We were impressed by how different it was from all the others we read...
Jolyn Canty's watercolor below was inspired by reading George MacDonald's poem, Consider the Ravens, and listening to Mary Lichlyter's musical setting.
This watercolor by Jolyn Canty was inspired by her reading of the January 24th entry in Consuming Fire.
Lord, according to thy words,
I have considered thy birds;
And I find their life good,
And better the better understood:
Sowing neither corn nor wheat
They have all that they can eat;
Reaping no more than they sow
They have more than they could stow;
Having neither barn nor store,
Hungry again, they eat more...
