Cain and Abel, William Blake

Recently David visited St James Piccadilly, attracted by the music of a choir. While he was listening, he realized that St James was the church where William Blake had been baptized, and the musicians were preparing to celebrate his birth, which was 250 years ago today.

It's hard to do Blake justice, and for a long time, no one did.
