Impossible to Hide Their Sound

“There are metaphors more real than the people who walk in the street. There are images tucked away in books that live more vividly than many men and women. There are phrases from literary works that have a positively human personality. There are passages from my own writing that chill me with fright, so distinctly do I feel them as people, so sharply outlined do they appear against the walls of my room, at night, in shadows… I’ve written sentences whose sound, read out loud or silently (impossible to hide their sound), can only be of something that acquired absolute exteriority and a full-fledged soul.”

Tuesdays with Tilda

“…Eve expresses something very accurate about me, which is not the artist in me but the cheerleader of artists, the bird at the end of the phone, the dance partner, the appreciative reader of proofs, the bearer of the bucket, and the sponge in the ­corner, sometimes the jester with the balloon on a stick. This is, beyond ­anything I think, the part of my work that I treasure the most, my job, above all, as artist’s moll.”-Tilda Swinton (via)

She’s got a way with words. ♥

Art21: Writer-In-Residence

“Hello, readers! I am thrilled to be the writer-in-residence for the “Value” issue of the Art21 Magazine. Over the next two months, I will examine the market-driven forces behind contemporary art appraisal, as well as the intangible, mutable, and subjective nature of worth. Through the stories of artists, innovators, and dreamers, I will explore the psychology of wealth and share perspectives that rupture conventional thought.” – me

It’s true! I am the current Writer-In-Residence at Art21 and I’m over the moon about it.

Lightly, My Darling

It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. I was so preposterously serious in those days…Lightly, lightly—it’s the best advice ever given me. So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly, my darling.” — Island, Aldous Huxley

Good Mourning! Last week the Wrap-Up broke, and now I have a cold when I really can’t. Many apologies.

BUT. It’s a new dawn. It’s a new day. And I will walk lightly.

Hand in hand with Zicam. ♥
