Mysterious cement of the soul! And solder of society! I owe thee much. The picture as a whole seems to be a straightforward celebration of friendship, love, and sympathy, even if there are reasons to suspect that Blake thought of them all as mere shadows of a greater love.
Female love, female beauty, and the textile arts especially weaving are sometimes represented in Blake as potentially delusive, blinding, or binding, and are associated with the seductive charms and limitations of the natural world as opposed to the sublime glories of the spiritual realm. Since spinning and its correlatives are the postlapsarian business of Eve and her daughters, spinning in Blake sometimes seems a fallen activity, productive and even satisfying but not in itself redemptive. Nevertheless, I find little that could be seen as sinister in this design, which suggests that the difference between corporeal and spiritual friendship is one of degree rather than of kind.
Even the spiral arrangement of the cooperating women echoes the circular or helical movement of spinning itself, and implies a special connection between pleasant sociability and spinning. The smaller female floating above Love and her friend Sympathy and looking upward through the accumulating skein may indicate the importance of vision in transcending the sociable spiral of friendship.
See Heppner ; he suggests that the girl is looking up to indicate the source of the skein. The road swerves right and disappears into a river? Card already have! Here it is!

Wonderful pictures of your beautiful creation! It's outstanding and surely this should be out there in the world wide news. What a great way to start the new year. Posted by Sfander on 12 Jan, Posted by Darcey1 on 12 Jan, Fantastic project! Good luck with the doll now! Posted by mumblebee on 12 Jan, This is awsome. I love it. Posted by meidans on 12 Jan, I have a cats calender for ,each month has a card at the bottom to send.
I'm going to collect these and send one of them every month in Because I also blog about postcrossing every week, I will also include this in my weblog about postcrossing. Posted by scoozie73 on 12 Jan, In , I'm going to continue my postal project of sending the postcards representing all federal subjects of the Russian Federation!
The Russian Federation currently consists of 85 federal subjects, including 2 disputed. At the moment, I've sent postcards of 58 subjects: Mountains, sand dunes, prehistoric petroglyphs, a cosmodrome, Buddhist temples, mosques, Christian churches, and so on, and so on. Also, I would LOVE to send postcards with ethnicities who live in Russia, but it's much harder: It seems that there are very few postcards of people in traditional costumes who are not ethnically Russian.
I've sent postcards with only 7 non-Russian ethnicities of the Russian Federation. What a great idea!!!
