Do you love it madly? Tell me what you say.

"That's what real love amounts to- letting a person be what he really is. Most people love you for who you pretend to be. To keep their love, you keep pretending- performing. You get to love your pretence. It's true, we're locked in an image, an act-”

I love this so much about the city- that there seems to be such freedom of expression, and people are not afraid to use it. A great shot, Daryl!

Nice art. Thanks for commenting on my Magnolias. You have to be a true southern gal to appreciate them..just remember to bring your allergy meds if you travel south of the Lincoln tunnel:)

I do love your doors. This one isn't pretty, but it is fascinating.

We seem to be having trouble accessing one another's blogs and comments. I tried this much earlier today, and couldn't

That is amazing graffiti. I love it. A mixed-media approach?

Indrani said...

That is a very unusual find. I liked the color against the grey background.

I love your photography. I genuinely want us to do a book together. K?

Jim Morrison irritates and interests me, both. Just when I'm ready to toss him on junk heap of random allusion and poetic pretension, I read something like:

"Death makes angels of us all, and gives us wings where we had shoulders smooth as ravens's claws." He cooda been a contenda.

It's hard for me to load your page very quickly, so forgive me for commenting on the two subsequent posts here. I llove the pond photograph. Nature speaks so eloquently, and good photography only adds to that. And the Tide disaster aid thing is neat! I love it when companies do things like that, it makes me feel like maybe there's a heart in there someplace after all, at least sometimes.
