Remembrance: Marcel Proust – Part 4

Remembrance: Marcel Proust

Moments from
“Remembrance of Things Past”


Part 4

“Love is a striking example
of how little reality means to us.”
― Marcel Proust, In Search of Lost Time

“Like many intellectuals,
he was incapable of saying
a simple thing in a simple way”
― Marcel Proust

“Reading is that fruitful miracle
of a communication
in the midst of solitude.”
― Marcel Proust

“There are perhaps no days
of our childhood
we lived so fully
as those we believe
we left without
having lived them,
those we spent
with a favorite book.”
― Marcel Proust

“My destination is
no longer a place,
rather a new way of seeing.”
― Marcel Proust

“The Vampyre Of Time And Memory”

I want to God to come and take me home
‘Cause I’m all alone in this crowd
Who are you to me?
Who am I supposed to be?
Not exactly sure anymore
Where’s this going to?
Can I follow through?
Or just follow you
For a while?

Does anyone ever get this right?
I feel no love

Ain’t no confusion here, it is as I feared
The illusion that you feel is real
To be vulnerable is needed most of all
If you intend to truly fall apart

You think the worst of all is far behind
The Vampyre of time and memories has died
I survived.
I speak, I breathe,
I’m incomplete
I’m alive – hooray!
You’re wrong again
‘Cause I feel no love

Does anyone ever get this right?

Does anyone ever get this right?
I feel no love
I feel no love

Lily Tomlin, star of Paul Weitz’s Sundance film, ‘Grandma,’ shares the best advice she was ever given, “giggle and get in,” advice given by director Robert Altman, suggesting she move into an apartment during their shoot rather than stay in a hotel. Tomlin and Weitz discuss the film and Tomlin’s character development with Stacey Wilson of ‘The Hollywood Reporter’, in this Scene at Sundance 2015.

Lily and Jane have the new series, “Gracie and Frankie” created for Netflix. It was released by Netflix in May 2015.

“Aesop had some hidden tales…”

child-in-magical-forest young girl enchanted forest

Aesop had some hidden tales, one was told
Beginning always at the start
Come to hear what Aesop has to say
Darkness will be rolling in soon
Everyone needs to be in their places

Far away, a young maiden was lost
Going out for a walk one day
Her senses were all aflutter
Identifying her path became impossible
Joining her on her way the sounds of animals
Killer animals, she felt they might be
Lions and Tigers haunted her lands
Multiple species could be walking with her
Never would she see their faces
Only hearing the sound of their voices
Prepared she was not to protect herself
Quite alone was she among the wolves of nature
Retracing her steps she turned about in circles
Soon she was more lost than before
Tales such as this one does have a moral
Under no circumstances wander in the wild alone
Very important to bring a brave fighting companion
Wilder are the animals when smelling her fear
Xenophanes, with no thoughts to the outcome
Yelling out would be futile, only arousing appetites
Zach, would do; but in carelessness, she left him behind

The End
