Here we are, trapped in the amber of the moment. There is no why. -- Kurt Vonnegut
He stretched out his arms to the crystalline, radiant sky.
-- F. Scott Fitzgerald, This Side of Paradise
I am a derivative thinker, a ferocious reader, secret artist, a nerd, an optimist (mostly), and a bit of a loner by choice. I like to travel with my taste buds; visiting other countries by sampling their cuisine and also reading about their culture and religious traditions. I am not very good at drawing, so I use my camera as my sketchbook. I use my blog as a commonplace book to express my thoughts and emotions using quotes and art.

“You think it’s unreal? Don’t forget it’s real in my head.”
Charlotte Eriksson, The Glass Child, played every single instrument on this, as well as recorded, produced and mixed it by herself.

Remember your name. Do not lose hope - what you seek will be found. Trust ghosts. Trust those that you have helped to help you in their turn. Trust dreams. Trust your heart, and trust your story. — Neil Gaiman, Instructions: Everything You’ll Need to Know on Your Journey
Steve Jobs narrates the first Think different commercial “Here’s to the Crazy Ones”, 1997
Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them; disagree with them; glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do. — Steve Jobs. (often misattributed to Jack Kerouac)
Hans Richter - Vormittagsspuk (1928) Fantastically fabulous.
Other titles: Ghosts Before BreakfastDirector: Hans RichterCountry: GermanyYear: 1928Format: 16mm
Synopsis: Pure vintage dada. A humorous, delightful, grotesque in which ordinary objects rebel against their daily routine and, for a brief period of liberation, fallow their own laws. A bow-tie undoes itself, bowler hats float gracefully through the air, coffee cups leap from a tray to smash themselves on the ground, and so forth. At the stroke of noon, they return to their normal functional state. GHOSTS BEFORE BREAKFAST represents one of the earliest collaborations between avant-garde filmmaker and composer: Paul Hindemith’s score accompanied the film when it was first shown at an avent-garde music festival in Baden-Baden in 1928.
