the photographer is not simply
the person who records the past,
but the one who invents it.”

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.”

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.”
