the unwritten

“There are moments in our lives, there are moments in a day, when we seem to see beyond the usual.
Such are the moments of our greatest happiness. Such are the moments of our greatest wisdom. 
If one could but recall his vision by some sort of sign. It was in this hope that the arts were invented.
Sign-posts on the way to what may be. Sign-posts toward greater knowledge.”

— Robert Henri

The Desert Winds Are Blowing   2 comments

March 2021 Sunset Paintings — Photo-Artistry by kenne

The desert winds
are blowing
Dust in the air
A haze on the horizon 
Is it today, tomorrow  
Or the end of time?
 
I’m an old man taking
A look at my life 
At seasons through eyes
Still chasing the rabbit
So I will ask Alice
Where will I be tomorrow?
 
Tomorrow can be a long time
I don’t care anymore
Just responding
To life’s facades
Looking for an answer
Have I been deceived?
 
Not knowing for sure
Will not cease exploring
In time arriving at a place
Which was the beginning
Will there be knowledge of
The place for the first time?

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.”

“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.

“Dreams Are The Seedlings Of Realities.”   3 comments

Mushrooms-Edit-blogAmanita Muscaria Mushrooms — Photo-Artistry by kenne

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
