Ephemeral

This is my little hideaway. A visual diary of sorts - random ramblings about art, poetry and history. My therapy to 'awaken the senses'.

Her style has both tone and undertone; it attempts to register the impossibility of saying very much, but it insists on the right to say a little. So what is essential is the voice itself, its ways of knowing and unknowing. An observation; a dry fact; a memory; something noticed; someone encountered; a joke; something wry; a provocation; something playful.

Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.

I’m failing - but having a bloody good time!! p>

I don’t think that writers, painters, photographers or filmmakers function because they have something they particularly want to say. They have something that they feel. - Stanley Kubrick

Past Life Connection

Always something magical with spirit. Recognising an old soul whatever form it decides to appear.

I’m attracted to the extreme light and the extreme dark. I’m interested in the human condition and what makes people tick. I’m interested in the things people try to hide.

Life Is Short, Proust Is Long

newyorker:

Can “Atlas Shrugged” really be read in a day? A new speed-reading technology promises rates of up to a thousand words a minute: http://nyr.kr/1orlcxJ

“In at least one way, slow reading is always unreasonable. It denies finitude. ‘Life is too short,’ as Anatole France once put it, ‘and Proust is too long.’ The problem with taking your time is that time runs out.”
