Not-knowing is true knowledge.
Presuming to know is a disease.
First realize that you are sick;
then you can move toward health.

Lao Tzu
there will be people who cannot handle your grace, your beauty, your wisdom, your heart;
mostly because they can’t handle their own. but you will never be
and have never been ‘too much.’

Tyler Ford, “Too Much,”

woohoo, c'est lundi !

Irving Penn
New York, 1939

Ces derniers temps je suis incapable de former le moindre mot et je songe parfois que les pleurs et l’angoisse m’ont vidé de toute émotion. J’ai gardé cette pulsion qui me pousse à faire des choses, par exemple filmer un rituel pour mettre en scène mon chagrin. C’est bientôt l’hiver et je roule vers l’une des seules forêts encore préservées de toute la côte, à l’ouest de new-york, pour me filmer en train de me baigner dans un lac. Je tiens la super-8 dans mes mains et je tourne et tourne dans les bois et je songe aux derviches, à l’enivrante liberté que l’on trouve dans la mort.

David Wojnarowicz, Au bord du gouffre, 1991

Arthur Rimbaud in New York  1978-1979.
David Wojnarowicz 
Destination means death to me. If I could figure out a way to remain forever in transition, in the disconnected and unfamiliar, I could remain in a state of perpetual freedom.

Jon Moritsugu - Mommy, Mommy, Where's My Brain
Combining the tropes of 60s art-house cinema with the primitive punk aesthetics of the Cinema of Transgression, Jon Moritsugu has been making movies far outside the mainstream for over twenty-five years. While his work has screened at venues as high profile as the Sundance, Berlin and Toronto Film Festivals and even public television, he continually shirks convention and classification. After making his name with a series of hand-made 16mm features, he's recently embraced video with a fervor and a freeness to which every young filmmaker should be paying attention. Moritsugu's world is overflowing with eye-popping production design, eardrum-destroying rock 'n' roll, gross-outs aplenty and deadpan one-liners you'll be quoting for weeks.
them damn things are everywhere !!!

A child has no trouble believing the unbelievable, nor does the genius or the madman. It’s only you and I, with our big brains and our tiny hearts, who doubt and overthink and hesitate.

Sufis are children in the custody of Allah
they never worry about anything.

The art of living is based on rhythm – on give and take, ebb and flow, light and dark, life and death. By acceptance of all aspects of life, good and bad, right and wrong, yours and mine, the static, defensive life, which is what most people are cursed with, is converted into a dance, ‘the dance of life,’ metamorphosis. One can dance to sorrow or to joy; one can even dance abstractly … But the point is that, by the mere act of dancing, the elements which compose it are transformed; the dance is an end in itself, just like life. The acceptance of the situation, any situation, brings about a flow, a rhythmic impulse towards self-expression.

Henry Miller: The Wisdom of the Heart

the dark side of the web

"Organized groups do most of the thinking for the populace at large. In a natural antipathy to thinking, which is hard work, practically every person depends upon some organization to do the thinking for him. The individual seldom knows where he gets his so-called facts; along with opinions, they are absorbed either through the columns of a newspaper habitually read, or are jammed into consciousness by the insistent radio. This reduces individual opinion to something largely made up out of hearsay, or propaganda, which is organized hearsay."

Manly P. Hall
