"A Tourist is a person who wishes to go home as soon as they arrive. A Traveler, belonging no more to one place than to the next, moves slowly."

"You must not reduce yourself to a puddle just because the person you like is afraid to swim and you are a fierce sea to them; because there will be someone who was born with love of the waves within their blood, and they will look at you with fear and respect."

"I like to think of your silence as the love letters you will not write me,
as two sax solos from two ages across a stage, learning the languages
of kissing with your eyes closed. I like to think of you as a god
to whom I no longer pray, as a god I aspire to. I like the opening of your joined palms,
which is like an urn where my ashes find a home. The music of your lashes;
the silent way your body wears out mine.
Mostly, I like to think of you at night when a black screen of shining dust shines
from your mines to the edge of my skin, where you are a lamp of flutters.
I remember the spectral lashes—marigold, tamarind, secret thing between your thighs,
of closed kissing eyes. At night, the possibility of you is a heavy
sculpture of heavy bronze at the side of my bed,
a god. And I pray you into life. Into flesh."
Clifton Gachagua, “A Bronze God, or a Letter on Demand,” from Madman at Kilifi (University of Nebraska Press, 2014)

Vidya Gastaldon, Escalator (Rainbow Rain), 2007, Palazzo Grassi Venezia, mostra L’illusione della luce, mag 2014.
The installation is a landscape of colored yarn, fabric, and small plastic elements recalling a rainbow. The artist was inspired by L. Frank Baum’s famous children’s novel, The Wizard of Oz. Dorothy, the novel’s central character, wants to escape, to travel beyond the rainbow, beyond the visible and corporeal limits of the world as she knows it. In Gastaldon’s sculpture, light transforms into a rain of soft, bright wool. That elusive “somewhere over the rainbow” seems attainable, as the work leads us to another dimension of perception. Source

Niemeyer-inspired Pythagorean Slide.
Wasn’t ever able to get the effect I was looking for, or find a visual that was a significant variation of the Golden Section construction or the Pythagorean tiling. Still the Pythagorean tiling with the golden ratio squares is pleasant.
