Anthony Sargeant donates books to OXFAM like this Girls Annual from the 1950s
Dawn at 7.33am on the 21st March 2016 photographed from the bedroom window of his Shropshire home by Tony Sargeant. The trees are still bare but the first haze of green is appearing on the branches although there are still frosts on the ground after a clear night like this was.
Not as bad as the previous photograph of the River Corve flooding in 2014 but after yesterday’s continuous heavy rain the water has made its way of the hills into the river and this is the result photographed by Anthony Sargeant at 9.00am this morning of the 7th February 2016.
Always separated by longing to belong
from belonging itself.
Always seeking comfort in companionship,
Yet, by seeking,
blocking that internal path
that ought to lead thereto.
thus never arriving.
but never reaching
the longed for terminus
Wherein others seem to have dwelt all their lives,
or so it seems to the Outsider.
Always a long way off,
like the refrain of the Wandering Jew,
“Next year in Jerusalem”
Anthony J Sargeant – 6th February 2016
This small Linthorpe vase in the collection of Eileen and Anthony Sargeant has a wonderful quality of glaze and shape. It joins a large number of other British Art Pottery pieces in the collection. It is 6 inches tall.
