Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
It's been another weird wild year and I've missed being out here in the blogsphere.
I think of you all fondly and I miss you.
May your weekend be merry and bright as we count down to the end of 2021.
Here's to a better, healthier and more stable 2022.
Hope… is the companion of power, and the mother of success;
for who so hopes has within him the gift of miracles.
— Samuel Smiles
Be thankful that you are here, swallowed with all hope,
where you can rest and wait. Be nostalgic. Think of all
the things you did and could have done.
— Dan Albergotti
The desire of the man is for the woman,
but the desire of the woman is for the desire of the man.
~ Madame de Staël
woman = anyone who posts pictures online
man = anyone who enjoys said pictures
is this all about desire?
This city is beauty
unbreakable and amorous as eyelids,
in the streets, pressed with fierce departures,
I am innocent as thresholds
and smashed night birds, lovesick,
as empty elevators
let me declare doorways,
corners, pursuit, let me say
standing here in eyelashes, in
invisible breasts, in the shrinking lake
in the tiny shops of untrue recollections,
the brittle, gnawed life we live,
I am held, and held
— Dionne Brand
There are no wrong roads to anywhere.
— Norton Juster
or if you prefer:
if you don't know where you're going, any road will get you there.
— Lewis Carroll
