Mood

July 30, 2010

 

Any art communicates what you’re in the mood to receive.
Larry Rivers

At first, I only laughed at myself. Then I noticed that life itself is amusing. I’ve been in a generally good mood ever since.
Marilyn vos Savant

I can tell jokes. I can talk to the audience. I can relax. I can change my songs whenever I want. I can change the tempos. I can change the mood, because I’m in charge.
Robert Goulet

I travel light. I think the most important thing is to be in a good mood and enjoy life, wherever you are.
Diane von Furstenberg

Silence

July 27, 2010

 

A moment of silence is not inherently religious.
Sandra Day O’Connor

A story is told as much by silence as by speech.
Susan Griffin

Choose silence of all virtues, for by it you hear other men’s imperfections, and conceal your own.
George Bernard Shaw

Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.
Helen Keller

 Everything in life is speaking in spite of it’s apparent silence.
Hazrat Inayat Khan

An idea can turn to dust or magic, depending on the talent that rubs against it.
William Bernbach

Art is a sense of magic.
Stan Brakhage

Art is magic… But how is it magic? In its metaphysical development? Or does some final transformation culminate in a magic reality? In truth, the latter is impossible without the former. If creation is not magic, the outcome cannot be magic.
Hans Hofmann

Believe in love. Believe in magic. Hell, believe in Santa Clause. Believe in others. Believe in yourself. Believe in your dreams. If you don’t, who will?
Jon Bon Jovi

Big dreams create the magic that stir men’s souls to greatness.
Bill McCartney

Compromise and tolerance are magic words. It took me 40 years to become philosophical.
Hedy Lamarr

Disbelief in magic can force a poor soul into believing in government and business.
Tom Robbins

Genius is another word for magic, and the whole point of magic is that it is inexplicable.
Margot Fonteyn

 I love contemplating photos, those classic iconic images we all remember. I love feeling the intensity these images reward me with. It´s a sort of a  mystical and cathartic experience and I´m convinced the world slows down.

Black Elk Circle Poem

July 9, 2010

  

You have noticed that everything an Indian does in a circle, 

and that is because the Power of the World always works in circles, 

and everything and everything tries to be round. 

  

In the old days all our power came to us from the sacred hoop 

of the nation and so long as the hoop was unbroken the people 

flourished. The flowering tree was the living center of the hoop, 

and the circle of the four quarters nourished it. The east gave peace 

and light, the south gave warmth, the west gave rain and the north 

with its cold and mighty wind gave strength and endurance. This 

knowledge came to us from the outer world with our religion. 

  

Everything the power of the world does is done in a circle. 

The sky is round and I have heard that the earth is round like a ball 

and so are all the stars. The wind, in its greatest power, whirls. 

Birds make their nests in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours. 

The sun comes forth and goes down again in a circle. The moon 

does the same and both are round. Even the seasons form a great 

circle in their changing and always come back again to where they were. 

  

The life of a man is a circle from childhood to childhood, and so it is 

in everything where power moves. Our teepees were round like the 

nests of birds, and these were always set in a circle, the nation’s hoop, 

a nest of many nests, where the Great Spirit meant for us to hatch our children.
