Somewhere, some place inside myself, I am detached.
I have always been detached (in part). Always.
― Susan Sontag
i would like to
I would like to watch you sleeping,
which may not happen.
I would like to watch you,
sleeping. I would like to sleep
with you, to enter
your sleep as its smooth dark wave
slides over my head
I would like to follow
you up the long stairway
again & become
the boat that would row you back
carefully, a flame
in two cupped hands
I would like to be the air
that inhabits you for a moment
only. I would like to be that unnoticed
& that necessary.
- Margaret Atwood
they are things that I do
in the dark
reaching for you
whoever you are
are you ready?
- June Jordan
You may kiss me as much as you
like. I wish you would. I always
wish you would. I wish you always would.
Remember asking, laughing, why
I write — used to — about the sea?
Kiss me. Tell me where you are.
_— Vahni Capildeo
the blessings of art
Being able to see the same spirit moving in different places,
different settings, different people and stories,
that's one of the blessings of art.
— David Milch
It's an earth song,
A body song,
A spring song,
I have been waiting long for this spring song.
I'm trying something different with my images, reinterpreting them and finding new ways to see them.
This is one of my preliminary attempts in a deconstructed paper collage.
painting with light
No, you don't shoot things. You capture them.
Photography means painting with light. And that's what you do.
You paint a picture only by adding light to the things you see.”
― Katja Michael
