Une étrange aventure.

“We live in the void of metamorphoses, but the echo that runs through the day… that echo beyond time, anguish or caress. Are we near to our conscience, or far from it?” Alphaville, Jean-Luc Godard

 

Why do we let ourselves soak in words and images? Why do we crave it? Why do we fall apart without it? Because man was made with the desire to learn, to seek and survive. Knowledge is how we adapt and how we evolve. Reading and writing is not just a hobby, it’s a means of survival. It opens us up to possibility and let’s us dance with Beauty. And it is in that dance that we find our compassion, our love…the things that make living worthwhile. It is in that dance, that we find ourselves.

I'm that girl that looks badass in her black boots reading Gothic Psychoanalytic Lit but really just wants to pew pew pew with someone.

    1. I know that poem Jon, I’ve always loved those lines. Beauty isn’t only those things that are good…beauty can be dark, frightening too…either way, whether light or dark, beauty is essential to our experience of the world and who we are.I know you get that! 😉
