We name time when we say:

every thing has its time.

This means:

everything which actually is,

every being comes and goes at the right time

and remains for a time during the time allotted to it.

Every thing has its time.

— Martin Heidegger

“Whatever you hold in your mind will tend to occur in your life.
If you continue to believe as you have always believed,
you will continue to act as you have always acted.
If you continue to act as you have always acted,
you will continue to receive what you have always received.
If you want different results in your life or your work,
all you have to do is change your mind.”

— Unknown

“I feel that a real living form is the natural result
of the individual’s effort to create the living thing
out of the adventure of his spirit into the unknown —
it has where experienced something — felt something —
it has not understood — and from that experience
comes the desire to make the unknown — known —

Making the unknown — known — in terms of one’s medium
is all-absorbing — if you stop to think of the form — as form
you are lost — The artist’s form must be inevitable —
You mustn’t think you won’t succeed –“

— Georgia O’Keeffe in a letter to Sherwood Anderson, 1923

The world is full of travellers.
Once in a year go to someplace you have never been before.
You will meet Confused seekers, Hopeful wanderers,
Enthusiastic story-tellers, Happy families.
Look into their eyes and stuff your eyes with wonder,
live as if you’d drop dead any moment.
Look at the world. It’s more beautiful than any dream you’d have ever seen.
Make the most beautiful travel diary and open it up your third generation
because only your grandchildren will understand what your children will fail to.

— Ranjani Ramachandran

My eyes are my camera
all I can write is what I see
reflected in the moment.

All moments are transient,
with fleeting feeling, and
destined to pass away.

The greatest achievement was
at first and for a time a dream.
The oaks sleeps in the acorn;
the bird waits in the egg;
and in the highest vision
of the soul a waking angel stirs.
Dreams are the seedlings of realities.

— James Allen

Cactus Digital Art — Existing in Absurdity   2 comments

Barrel Cactus-3522 art blogCactus Digital Art — by kenne

Life, art, and logic are full of absurdities of various kinds.
We conceptualize absurdities when we
discuss square circles and circular squares.
It is art that is able to provide a mediator
between the strange and the real.

“The creative act is only an incomplete and abstract moment in the production of a work.”

“Does it matter whether one is required to complete the work
or whether one is free to desist from the work
if you must meet a final art that certainly you did not make?”

*****

“Philosophical problems are conceptual confusions
that arise when a form of utterance appropriate
to one mode of discourse is mistakenly used in the wrong context
Confusions must be unpicked employing ordinary uses of language.”

— from Tom Turner’s Notes

 

A Series of Nonsequiturs   Leave a comment

Tom once wrote:

“Complications,
ambiguities,
nonsequiturs.
I keep 
searching
for clarity . . . lucidity;
knowing each time I seek that
I’ll become more entangled.

No. I’m not bored.
Just scared.
I’m 
moving toward
a sort-of silence . . .

I know what you’re thinking —
Bull-shit!
Bull shit!
Bull Shit!

Since the
significant things

I want to say
have the wrong

inflections;
intonations

for most arenas
of conversation:

I ramble on
into oblivion.

A series of nonsequiturs.”

cannot last beyond day’s end 
dying in the eyes of the setting sun.
