“I remember one morning getting up at dawn, there was such a sense of possibility. You know, that feeling? And I remember thinking to myself: So, this is the beginning of happiness. This is where it starts. And of course there will always be more. It never occurred to me it wasn’t the beginning. It was happiness. It was the moment. Right then.”
(Michael Cunningham, The Hours)
“There are moments when I can wander through my childhood’s landscape, through rooms long ago, remember how they were furnished, where the pictures hung on the walls, the way the light fell. It’s like a film – little scraps of a film, which I set running and which I can reconstruct to the last detail…”
“Don’t fade away
My brown-eyed girl
Come walk with me
I’ll fill your heart with joy
And we’ll dance through our isolation
Seeking solace in the wisdom we bestow
Turning thoughts to the here and ever after
Consuming fears in our fiery halos
But don’t let them make you and break you
The world is filled with their broken empty
Silence is their only virtue
Locked away inside their silent screams
Don’t bring me down now
Let me stay here for awhile
You know life’s too short
Let me bathe here in your smile
The fall from the garden…”
(Dead Can Dance, Goodnight )
“I think of all the choices I never knew. And those I let be made for me – to please, from fear, for love. Where did they disappear to, those choices that I never made? They are all part of who I am. They are the legacy I leave behind, they are the finished portrait of myself I cannot change.”
– Six years have past by, since I post for the first time, and it has been a blissful experience that I have shared with many of you, loyal viewers.
I would like to say – Thank you so much, all of you, for still being there, for your support and for all the kind words you left here! (…smiling…) –
