16:12"By my intimacy with nature I find myself withdrawn from man. My interest in the sun and the moon, in the morning and the evening, compels me to solitude."

Henry David Thoreau (via fables-of-the-reconstruction)
16:12"Life became more clear.
It’s like being clad in a straight-jacket and bow-tie
and having to crawl toward a hidden door in a room
as large as a baseball stadium and as dark as the scream
from someone’s throat. That someone is you. Don’t yell
too hard. You may wake up and realize life
isn’t like that. It isn’t really like anything.
But life does like itself and it needs you."

Sunset in Warsaw


Sunset in Warsaw

06:58"The biggest threat to our evolution as a modern culture, as I see it, is reductiveness. Reductiveness will mangle complex ideas and amplify them as simple ones. Once simplified, they can be co-opted and quickly dismantled. Any smart person with a point will see it quickly co-opted - to equal disadvantage - by large numbers of either followers or dissenters."

John Mayer
07:39"People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances with our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive."

Joseph Campbell

Sarah On Blue #1

This is my third model named Sarah. The first one disappeared twenty years ago; the second—oh, it’s too complicated.
This is Sarah Voss, whom I hope to keep around for a while.

05:54"In general, people are not drawn to perfection in others. People are drawn to shared interests, shared problems, and an individual’s life energy. Humans connect with humans. Hiding one’s humanity and trying to project an image of perfection makes a person vague, slippery, lifeless, and uninteresting."

to be haunted by someone
that is still alive."

19:57"In the present case, it is as essential to surmount a consciousness of an unreal freedom and to recognise a dependence not perceived by our senses."
