Eloquent, profoundly melancholic, intelligent and deeply wise, sentimental and provocative yet always raw in terms of emotion, Virginia Woolf was a woman entirely ahead of her time. This is made with much love and respect in her memory.
I was seized with gloom when you left. Isn’t it odd what tricks affection - to leave it at that- plays? I don’t see you for six weeks sometimes; yet the moment I know you’re there to be seen everything else in the world goes dark. Here I sit with my internal globe extinct. Yes - that’s a compliment for you.
Virginia Woolf, from a letter to Vita Sackville-West dated 7 January 1933.146 notes
