“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” ― Jack Kerouac

Victory Boogie Woogie is the last, and unfinished painting of Piet Mondriaan. He still worked at it  three days before he died.

I visited the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag last week in a depressed mood. When I walked into the room where Victory Boogie Woogie is displayed there was a lonely girl sitting in front of the painting. She was making a drawing, trying to catch the essence of the colours Mondriaan painted. Seeing her made me happy. If there is art there is a future.

“I remember my childhood names for grasses and secret flowers. I remember where a toad may live and what time the birds awaken in the summer — and what trees and seasons smelled like — how people looked and walked and smelled even. The memory of odors is very rich.”  ― John Steinbeck

“For every item that carries the darkness of humanity there’s one that holds the light. And that light is worth believing in. Not just in others, but in yourself as well.” C.M. Rayne

This Sphere symbolises the next war. The war we won’t notice. Until the lights go out.

There is another Alphabet …

weekly photo challenge - alfabet

To hear never-heard sounds,
To see never-seen colors and shapes,
To try to understand the imperceptible
Power pervading the world;
To fly and find pure ethereal substances
That are not of matter
But of that invisible soul pervading reality.
To hear another soul and to whisper to another soul;
To be a lantern in the darkness
Or an umbrella in a stormy day;
To feel much more than know.
To be the eyes of an eagle, slope of a mountain;
To be a wave understanding the influence of the moon;
To be a tree and read the memory of the leaves;
To be an insignificant pedestrian on the streets
Of crazy cities watching, watching, and watching.
To be a smile on the face of a woman
And shine in her memory
As a moment saved without planning.

Dejan Stojanovic

“I was the place where you anchored. I was the deep water where you could be weightless. I was the surface where you saw your own reflection. You scooped me up in your hands.”
