Working on an M.A. in archaeology.
I don't take myself seriously.
Neither should you.

Read the Printed Word!

Many years later, as he faced the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buendia was to remember that distant afternoon when his father took him to discover ice.

Francesca Woodman: Untitled, 1975-80

Crouched against a dilapidated interior, Woodman conceals her face with her hand. The combination between the vintage pattern of her dress and the peeling wall behind her create an antique, romantic air. Woodman’s photographs exhibit many influences, from Symbolism and Surrealism to fashion photography and Baroque painting. She explores issues of gender and self, looking at the representation of the body in relation to its surroundings. Woodman usually puts herself in the frame, although these are not conventional self-portraits, since as she is either partially hidden, or concealed by slow exposures that blur her moving figure into a ghostly presence. This underlying fragility is emphasised by the small and intimate format of the photographs.

People pay for what they do, and still more for what they have allowed themselves to become. And they pay for it very simply; by the lives they lead.

There are people in the world for whom “coming along” is a perpetual process, people who are destined never to arrive.

Perhaps, as we say in America, I wanted to find myself. This is an interesting phrase, not current as far as I know in the language of any other people, which certainly does not mean what it says but betrays a nagging suspicion that something has been misplaced. I think now that if I had had any intimation that the self I was going to find would turn out to be only the same self from which I had spent so much time in flight, I would have stayed at home.

Perhaps home is not a place but simply an irrevocable condition.

I wanted my friends to drink more
and drive more, to jump better from bridges and get on
with the crossing over so I could miss them drunkenly, tenderly,
with off-key singing to bagpipes that show up at wakes
in these parts with the potato salad.
