Trust your feelings, Luke (Obi Wan Kenobi)

'When something bad happens, we can revisit the humiliation and anxiety for months. But the good stuff, if we don’t work at it, can pass right by.

We get what we remember, and we remember what we focus on.'

It is really wonderful how much resilience there is in human nature (Bram Stoker)

It is really wonderful how much resilience there is in human nature. Let any obstructing cause, no matter what, be removed in any way, even by death, and we fly back to first principles of hope and enjoyment.

If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that (The Red Queen)


A
lice looked round her in great surprise. ‘Why, I do believe we’ve been under this tree the whole time! Everything’s just as it was!’

‘Of course it is,’ said the Queen, ‘what would you have it?’

‘Well, in our country,’ said Alice, still panting a little, ‘you’d generally get to somewhere else — if you ran very fast for a long time, as we’ve been doing.’

‘A slow sort of country!’ said the Queen. ‘Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!’

I want to seduce by means of imperceptible passages from one reality to another (Dorothea Tanning)





Endless doors, some open, some improbable, some closed, mostly ajar, showing worlds of possibilities.

One painting with sky for a ceiling and through a fireplace, breaking on through to the other side.

Wallpapers bulging and revealing other worlds from imagination bursting into rooms.

Imperceptible passages from one reality to another.

Yes, I visited the Dorothea Tanning exhibition at the Tate Modern recently and was overwhelmed by the ever moving worlds she creates in her paintings, textile sculptures and installations.

If you are in London, I really recommend a visit.
