Forever suspended along the liquid boundary

...that, according to Elisabeth Bronfen, is where Ophelia lies in this painting by John Everett Millais. A poet sent me this link a short while ago. Oddly enough, I recently ran across The Somnambulist, another painting by Millais, during a search after another poet I know spoke of somnambulism. It's as if Millais is a thread and these poets, catching light like Ophelia's blouse, are embroidering my life.
