"I am she whose touch freezes and whose glance turns to stone. I have stayed the star in its dancing, and the wave as it falls. The highest Alps are my dwelling place; and when I walk, the lightnings flash in my hair; where my eyes fall, they kill."
...Orlando, Virgina Wolf, 1928) added by Christopher Mahoney, Photographer
"...the sun ris'n looks through the horizontal misty air Shorn of his beams, or from behind the moon In dim eclipse disasterous twilight sheds On half the nations, and with fear of change Perplexes monarchs. Darked so, yet shone Above them all th' Archangel: but his face Deep scares of thunder had entrenched, and care Sat on his faded cheek, but under brows Of dauntless courage, and considerate pride Waiting revenge: cruel his eyes but cast Signs of remorse and passion to behold The fellows of his crime..."
....(Paradise Lost, John Milton, 1667) added by Christopher Mahoney, Photographer
"I", you say, and are proud of the word, but greater is that in which you do not wish to have faith- your body and its good reason: that does not say "I" but does "I"
.... Friedrich Nietzche , added by
Nancy Galeota-Wozny, Dancer, practitioner of the Feldenkrais Method and teaching artist
"Everything that rises must converge."
....(title, Flannery O'Conner, short story)
Black sails in the sunset White noise going "yakity yak" All the money in the world won't ever bring your body back Is it some mysterious dance Nobody can do Thought I knew all the steps Quite clearly I don't have a clue
--Elvis Costello...added by Stevie D'Arbanville
