Animals in Art - Michel Vanden Eeckhoudt

Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent.
To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden,
where doing nothing was not boring - it was peace.

Milan Kundera

having of certain stars and planets heard,
rose very slowly in a tight balloon
until the smallening world became absurd

great as it is, certainly is one of degree and not of kind

Movie Moments - Derek Jarman, Marianne Faithful, 1979


At the age of thirty-seven she realised she'd never
Ride through Paris in a sports car with the warm wind in her hair.
So she let the phone keep ringing and she sat there softly singing
Little nursery rhymes she'd memorised in her daddy's easy chair.
