Introducing Scoop Neck Tees and Unisex Tanks — FIND OUT MORE

Further down the river is the place we rarely go…fearsome and dark with the kind of darkness that’s blacker than night, it is haunted by river snakes and no bird ventures in…yet at certain times it is lit by a shaft of blazing sunlight, so vivid it takes your breath away….it is as if the sun is bowing down to the earth…suddenly all fear is gone, shadows dissipated, and gazing upward, you are rapt with the beauty of the bamboo hanging over head, of the fingers of light piercing the reeds below…as suddenly as it appears it is gone..J.Z

Sudden in a shaft of sunlight
Even while the dust moves
There rises the hidden laughter
Of children in the foliage
Quick now, here now, always
..T.S. Eliot
