The Land of the Blue Flower

"Art needs solitude or misery or passion. 
Lukewarm zephyrs wilt it. 
It is a rock-flower flourishing by stormy blasts in stony soil."

Alexandre Dumas

TTD: Sing a Song only You Can Hear

*Photos Studio 8mm / Edited by me

"Night poured over the desert. 
It came suddenly, in purple. 
In the clear air, 
the stars drilled down out of the sky, 
reminding any thoughtful watcher 
that it is in the deserts and high places that religions are generated. 
When men see nothing but bottomless infinity over their heads 
they have always had a driving and desperate urge to find someone to put in the way."

Terry Pratchett

Flowers Popping Up

"where always it's Spring 
and everyone's in love 
and flowers pick themselves"

E.E. Cummings

TTD: The Old Lost Road through the Woods

*Photos Studio 8mm / Editing me

"Hang there, my verse, in witness of my love:
And thou, thrice-crowned queen of night, survey
With thy chaste eye, from thy pale sphere above,
Thy huntress' name that my full life doth sway.
O Rosalind! these trees shall be my books
And in their barks my thoughts I'll character;
That every eye which in this forest looks
Shall see thy virtue witness'd every where.
Run, run, Orlando; carve on every tree
The fair, the chaste and unexpressive she."

Shakespeare - As You Like It

Pink Peonies

"Like spraying rockets
My peonies shower
Their glories on the night.
Wavering perfumes,
Drift about the garden;
Towards the impossible,
Towards the inaccessible,
Towards the ultimate,
Towards the silence,
Towards the eternal,
These blossoms go.
The peonies spring like rockets in the twilight,
And out of them all I rise."

John Gould Fletcher

MySpot: I Shall Build My Castle

"Every big castle was once started with a single block; 
despise no small beginnings. 
A little step taken every day builds up the hope of greater accomplishments. 
o something every day!"
