1. Realize deeply that the present moment is all you will ever have.

    — Eckhart Tolle   (via beautyismadness)

  2. metaphorformetaphor:

    "A poem is a place where the conditions of beyondness and withinness are made palpable, where to imagine is to feel what it is like to be. It allows us to have the life we are denied because we are too busy living. Even more paradoxically, poetry permits us to live in ourselves as if we were just out of reach of ourselves." 

    —Mark Strand, closing lines to section III of ”On Becoming a Poet,” from  The Weather of Words (Alfred A. Knopf, 2000)

  4. Enlightenment is understanding that there is nowhere to go, nothing to do, and nobody you have to be except exactly who you’re being right now.

(via Stretching the Truth of Photography)
Photography’s initial accomplishment was to allow for the instantaneous transformation of a four-dimensional object or event into a static, two-dimensional representation. However, in the catalogue for the 1970 exhibition Photography into Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art, Peter C.

(via Weekend Studio Visit: John Willenbecher in Tribeca, New York)
John Willenbecher tells me that his recent paintings are about “connecting the dots.” One of his lifelong interests has been the night sky – abstraction in nature – which he traces to his childhood interest in astronomy while growing up in eastern Pennsylvania. For his thirteenth birthday his parents gave him A Primer for Star Gazers by Henry M. Neely.
