"Take most people, they're crazy about cars. They worry if they get a little scratch on them, and they're always talking about how many miles they get to a gallon, and if they get a brand-new car already they start thinking about trading it in for one that's even newer. I don't even like old cars. I mean they don't even interest me. I'd rather have a goddam horse. A horse is at least human, for God's sake."



~ J.D. Salinger, New York, 1 januari 1919 - 27 januari 2010

fluistering


"PASSAGE

Den Haag, stad, boordevol Bordewijk
en van Couperus overal een vleug
op Scheveningen aan, de villawijk
die kwijnt en zich Eline Vere heugt.

Maar in de binnenstad staan ze te kijk,
deurwaardershuizen met de harde deugd
van Katadreuffe die zijn doel bereikt.
Ik drink twee werelden, in ene teug.

Den Haag, je tikt er tegen en het zingt.
In de passage krijgt de klank een hoog
weergalmen en omlaag een fluistering
tussen de voeten over het graniet;
rode hartkamer die in elleboog
met drie uitmondingen de stad geniet."

~ Gerrit Achterberg
(uit: Ode aan Den Haag)

While the sun is going down
And we talk of the things that we wish to know
But she's really not around"

"When an artist explains what he is doing he usually has to do one of two things: either scrap what he has explained, or make his subsequent work fit in with the explanation."
~ Alexander Calder

stabile


"Each element can move, shift or sway back & forth in a changing relation to each of the other elements in the universe. Thus, they reveal not only isolated moments, but a physical law or variation among the elements of life. Not extractions, but abstractions. Abstractions which resemble no living things except by their manner of reacting."

"It's snowing still," said Eeyore gloomily.
"So it is."
"And freezing."
"Is it?"
"Yes," said Eeyore. "However," he said, brightening up a little, "we haven't had an earthquake lately."
