"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."

"my sadness is not
a cut for you to bandage
and it is not
a bruise for you to kiss

i am not waiting
for you to save me
i am hoping you will love me
while i rescue myself"
this is what a hero looks like (via mashamorevna)

"Cities have often been compared to language: you can read a city, it’s said, as you read a book. But the metaphor can be inverted. The journeys we make during the reading of a book trace out, in some way, the private spaces we inhabit. There are texts that will always be our dead-end streets; fragments that will be bridges; words that will be like the scaffolding that protects fragile constructions. T.S. Eliot: a plant growing in the debris of a ruined building; Salvador Novo: a tree-lined street transformed into an expressway; Tomas Segovia: a boulevard, a breath of air; Roberto Bolano: a rooftop terrace; Isabel Allende: a (magically real) shopping mall; Gilles Deleuze: a summit; and Jacques Derrida: a pothole. Robert Walser: a chink in the wall, for looking through to the other side; Charles Baudelaire: a waiting room; Hannah Arendt: a tower, an Archimedean point; Martin Heidegger: a cul-de-sac; Walter Benjamin: a one-way street walked down against the flow."

"Every good building is the illustration of a passing conviction. It has a civilizing effect on its environs. To illustrate means to civilize, to use the construction of an imaginarium to explain an unattainable state of completeness. Illustrations help us build a fuzzy story about their subject. ‘There it is again,’ we hear time after time… So, contrary to popular belief, an illustration is effective if it becomes the multiplication of an object’s fiction - its memory-, firing the story towards other scenarios that initially seem inexplicable, like a great archaeological discovery that changes history in an unforeseen way… Then, like Pieter Bruegel the Elder’s Tower of Babel, the image gets attached to the text and becomes its shadow: breathing its air, sharing its scale, occupying the same area, flirting with its time for a while. The task of architecture is to achieve that sliver of credibility."

"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."

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
