{see} inconsequence

Buste De Femme De Profil, 1899
Georges Clairin


"...when she dies, she'll wonder why she obeyed all the rules of god and country, because no biblical hell could ever be worse than the state of perpetual inconsequence."

taste: when honey isn't honey
see: would like to catch melancholia
hear: star blanket river child, brightback morning light
touch: temp-sensitive tiles

  2. What an interesting and provocative picture. I never saw Dangerous Beauty. Do you recommend it? Linguistic nerd--that's a gust of fresh air.

  3. What a stunning piece...I had to look at it for a while.

    Monica, you must see Melancholia... I've seen it twice - it is fantastic & very hard to describe. I would love to hear what you think about it, what your observations are. My sister & I talked for hours on the subject of this film!

    today is filled with much opportunity
    read: the writing on the wall
    taste: the freedom to be who I am meant to be
    see: love...in its purest form
    here: whispers of truth

  8. Thanks for the link to the linguistics article. I'm a complete linguistics nerd as well :-)

  9. The quote is right on...only I am questioning it before I die so I stop losing who I am...... I have spent too many years "dancing as fast as I can" also a state of perpetual inconsequence.....Life is too short.....Fantastic painting to go with the quote...

  10. really, really love this, Monica!

    read the bit about honey a couple of months ago. All the more reason to buy local and know your farmers (or apiary, in this case).

  16. fantastic quote! Haven't seen that film, and can't recall hearing about it at the time. Might check it out if I can get hold of it. I do love the sound of a film about a Venetian courtesan. I always suspected I may have been one in a former life...heheheh ; )

    I couldn't stand Melancholia, but I won't say anything more for fear of giving spoilers. I thought it was beautifully shot. Some of Lars Von Trier's work I find to be incredible, other stuff of his leaves me cold, and fuming. But hey, gotta hand it to him, he's an artist who provokes something other than indifference ; ) It seems that with Melancholia, there are as many people who love it as hate it.

    Oh, and I dig that track you've linked to.

  18. I looked at the picture for a long time but I still don't quite know what it means. Fascinating.

  19. Ah, what a fantastic quote, I couldn't agree more.

  20. I remember that quote. Even now, I wonder... But I am also faced with the other side of the coin: What happens when you no longer obey? What happens to your children?

    1. yes. there is submission and there is freedom. each has it's price. the vital bit is having the choice.
