I am much more active on my Tumblr account, than I am here, it seems. Come and follow me there if you like.

I Thought of You

I Thought of You

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.

Around me were the echoing dunes, beyond me
The cold and sparkling silver of the sea,
We two will pass through death and ages lengthen
Before you hear that sound again with me.

The Art of Vilhelm Hammershøi

Today I discovered and instantly fell in love with the art of Danish artist Vilhelm Hammershøi. The sparse, softly lit interiors with the occassional lone dark figure sort of ties into everything I like at the moment - minimalism, muted colors, soft lighting...

Still Water

Still Water:Moving Water

You, who with your curious mind
and knowing sense,
watch me as if you watch still water,
wondering if my calm were some pretence,
not seeing the troubled depths,
the swift dark currents of my turbulence.

And yet a day can stretch its calm
wide open like water lilies,
and an hour or two be shared at ease.
My hands tell you nothing my eyes
do not know, and if at times we disagree
we can laugh, because human touch never lies.

You, who tell me with a smile
of your vulnerability,
catch me watching the play of sunlight
on waters that flow too fast, your alacrity
no easy match for silent deeps,
but something of what you are flows into me.

And if, I thought, we'd not divide
this living hour with compromise,
withhold a portion of our solitude,
perhaps we'd find in each other, if we're wise,
a moving stillness that yet moves to find
in a paradox of waters a truth we'd recognize.

A Little Quiz

I am Elinor Dashwood!

You are Elinor Dashwood of Sense & Sensibility! You are practical, circumspect, and discreet. Though you are tremendously sensible and allow your head to rule, you have a deep, emotional side that few people often see.

Deep. Quiet. Brilliant.

The description by YouTube's ftape, pretty much sums it up:

"Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton stars in Pringle of Scotland's Spring/Summer 2010 short film by the iconic art photographer Ryan McGinley.

Shot on location in Scotland, the film features key Scottish landmarks, nature spots and modernistic architecture locations."

R.I.P. Alexander McQueen

R.I.P. Alexander

This is a phenomenal loss for the fashion community. Alexander was a courageous designer, always unafraid to push the envelope and never willing to abandon his own creative vision. He will be greatly missed
