  2. thank you, dirk. it is the most frightening thing in the world for me to think that the thing is the thing and only the thing, rather than a metaphor or a reflection or something to be examined to reveal that which has no body behind it. in other words, a world without mystery is the ultimate terror to me.

    should the photographer only take a photo of the flower and show the flower as the flower?

    what if a rose is only a rose?

    scary shit, indeed.

  3. So much story/strategy/potential in each instant. I had two little ones visiting me lately, bundles of energy, noise,attracting and repelling each other, constantly changing direction, pleased and saddened so easily.

  4. I don't believe it's possible. There are too many of us who hear it, see it, feel it. I believe this makes it so.

  5. it doesn't matter what there really exists, it matters only that we can't stop imagining that there is something there begging for being revealed, i think :-)

    your self-portrait is staggering.
