fern and moss



Serenity is when you get above all this, when it doesn’t matter what they think, say or want, but when you do as you are, and see God and Devil as one.
Henry Miller

It is in your self-interest to find a way to be very tender.
Jenny Holzer




My happiest hours are those in which I think nothing, want nothing, when I do not even dream, but lose myself in some spurious vegetable torpor, moss growing on the surface of life. Without a trace of bitterness I savour my absurd awareness of being nothing, a mere foretaste of death and extinction.
Fernando Pessoa

Beauty will be convulsive or will not be at all.
André Breton




When the immense drugged universe explodes
In a cascade of unendurable colour
And leaves us gasping naked,
This is no more than the ecstasy of chaos:
Hold fast, with both hands, to that royal love
Which alone, as we know certainly, restores
Fragmentation into true being.
Robert Graves, Poems 1965-1968 




He who jumps into the void owes no explanation to those who stand and watch.
Jean-Luc Godard
