Tell me what it is you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?

 Mary Oliver

comme des garcons in Volt Magazine by Roy Rossovich

Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their mind, 
wake in the morning to find that it was vanity. 
But the dreamers of the day are dangerous people,
 For they dream their dreams with open eyes, 
And make them come true.

D.H. Lawrence

Ordinary people waited till life disclosed to them its secrets, but to the few, to the elect, 
the mysteries of life were revealed before the veil was drawn away. 
Sometimes this was the effect of art, and chiefly of the art of literature, 
which dealt immediately with the passions and the intellect.

Perhaps creating something is nothing but an act of profound remembrance.

Art offers the possibility of love with strangers.

Artists are magical helpers. 
Evoking symbols and motifs that connect us to our deeper selves, 
they can help us along the heroic journey of our own lives.

"Where does a thought go when it’s forgotten?"

Sigmund Freud

by nadia duvall

    I'll take you in my thoughts
                                                            I'll take your shadow too,
Wherever I may go, 
you'll smell the flowers too..
I'll wear you like a crown
Over my strained heart
And keep you safe with me, into the light.

If I hold you with my emotions, you will become a wished for companion. 
If I hold you with my eyes, you will grow old and die. 
So I hold you here, where we both mix with the infinite.

when the moon comes up, the sea blankets the earth,

and the heart feels like an island in infinity.

federico garcia lorca
will you remember my name...?

Pasiunea pentru o idee, un lucru sau o persoana, oricat ar fi de puternica,
daca nu are acel fior ascuns, ingemanare de puritate si indemn la frumusete
 prin care fapta noastra cea de toate zilele devine creatie, 
duce numai la consumuri zadarnice si la tradarea destinului nostru insusi.

Ernest Bernea

"Clouds … I exist unconsciously and I’ll die unwillingly. 

I am the interval between what I am and what I am not, 

between what I dream and what life has made for me, 

the abstract, carnal halfway-house between things, 

like myself, that are nothing. 

Clouds …"

I'm so inspired to work while listening to Korzeniowski....

I won’t paint a canvas unless it serves me in some way, 
unless I feel I have to paint to make my world come alive. 
If you’re not overflowing with something, there’s nothing to give...

"To be an artist you have to give up everything, including the desire to be a good artist."
Jasper Johns

"One of the most amazing things that can happen is finding someone who sees everything
 you are and won’t let you be anything less. They see the potential of you. 
They see endless possibilities. 
And through their eyes, you start to see yourself the same way. 
As someone who matters. 
As someone who can make a difference in this world."

sometimes it's just like this with love....

As you grow up, always tell the truth, do no harm to others, 
and don’t think you are the most important being on earth. 
Rich or poor, you then can look anyone in the eye and say, 
‘I’m probably no better than you, but I’m certainly your equal.’
(In 2006, a young boy named Jeremy wrote To Kill a Mockingbird author Harper Lee an endearing fan letter, asking for a signed photo. She didn’t send one, but offered this gem of advice...)

The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. 
You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. 
You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. 
There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, 
on an individual level. 
It’s got to happen inside first.

Jim Morisson

She always had that about her, that look of otherness,
 of eyes that see things much too far, 
and of thoughts that wander off the edge of the world.

multumesc mama ca m-ai nascut

Astazi ,dau navala peste mine cei 30 de ani pe care-i port in gand si in simtiri.
Si ma minunez singura de aceasta viata ce mi s-a daruit, atat de frumoasa in lectiile ce mi 
le-a asternut de-a lungul acestor ani , atat de plina de lumina si culoare ce-mi sunt oferite moment de moment de copiii mei.
Cum spunea Cioran, 'coplesita de bunuri, rasfatata dupa cantarul lumii acesteia' , 
insa umila si mereu cu gratitudine in fata firescului de zi cu zi care mi se reveleaza 
fara a ma intreba de unde si incotro ma indrept. 
Si in aceste clipe ale trecatoarei mele vieti pe acest Pamant, 
stiu ca fruntea mea nu a purtat ades 'laurii gloriei', 
ca lumina nu a fost cu mine tot timpul, ca cerul s-a mai si innorat.
Sunt intrebata ce-mi doresc, acum, la rascrucea celor treizeci de ani.
Imi doresc poate sa nu fi stiut ce inseamna sa pierzi cu adevarat, insa revolta ce s-a nascut in mine mi-a ridicat privirea catre stele, catre inaltul cerului de unde nu indraznesc 
sa o mai cobor de teama de a nu pierde reveria culorilor.
Imi doream ,poate, ca drumul meu pana acum sa fie lin si lipsit de asperitati astfel incat ochii mei sa nu se incrunte la nedreptatea asternuta in plina zi, insa cutele acestora mi-au revelat insemnatatea clipei si trairea frumoasa a momentului 
ce trebuie furata atunci cand se iveste si pretuita in efemeritatea ei.
Mi-as fi dorit poate sa nu fiu impinsa pe drumul altora insa nu as fi invatat vointa de a pune hotar gandirii mele si de a striga tare si raspicat Aceasta sunt Eu.
Multumesc vremelnicei intelegeri ca unele lucruri trebuie nascute din autonomia proprie, ca cel mai imoprtant este Caracterul ce nu se poate naste dintr-un rol social ci se slefuieste in focul propriu.
Coplesita de trairi si ganduri ale unui univers mult prea tacut pentru lumea aceasta, 
ma plec in fata tuturor care au avut iubirea si deschiderea de a ma primi in sufletele lor, 
de a-mi oferi zambetul lor sincer si o imbratisare adevarata.


kate kelleher

There is a force within that gives you life - Seek that. 
In your body there lies a priceless jewel - Seek that. 
Oh, wandering One, if you are in search of the greatest treasure, 
don’t look outside. Look within, and seek That.

I shall look at you out of the corner of my eye, and you will say nothing. 
Words are the source of misunderstandings.
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince 

by Kitten-flickr

At the root of every large struggle in life is the need to be honest about something 
that we do not feel we can be honest about. 
We lie to ourselves or other people because the truth might require action on our part, 
and action requires courage. 
We say we “don’t know” what is wrong, when we do know what is wrong; 
we just wish we didn’t.
The Secret Life of Prince Charming, Deb Caletti
