"All things that pass are wisdom's looking glass." - Christina Rossetti

It is often the most difficult lessons in life that shape us into the best version of ourselves. Rossetti's insightful poem "Passing and Glassing" muses on the nature of aging. Unlike a physical looking glass which reflects our appearance, Wisdom's looking glass reflects memory and growth.

In this illustration, the intersection of circles form an eye and crescent moons. The central circle forms the mirror, the handle of which suggests a tear and the hard-won lessons of time, but the reflection reflects upward toward the stars.
