Spectres in Blue: Visions from a Garden

The world is blue at its edges and in its depths. This blue is the light that gets lost...
This light that does not touch us, does not travel the whole distance, the light that gets lost,
 gives us the beauty of the world, so much of which is in the colour blue.

( Rebecca Solnit 2005 'A Field Guide to Getting Lost'  p29)

“Reports that say that something hasn’t happened are always interesting to me,
because as we know, there are
known knowns; there are things we know we know.
 We also know there are
known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know.
 But there are also
unknown unknowns—the ones we don’t know we don’t know.
 And if one looks throughout the history of our country and other free countries,
it is the latter category that tends to be the difficult ones.”

(Donald Rumsfeld, 2002 speaking of the Iraq War)

So my question becomes:

If beauty is truth, And truth beauty, And beauty is blue, And blue is light, But truth gets lost,

What light do we choose to follow?

(Linda Mayoux, 2022,  Spectres in Blue)
