Moments from
“Remembrance of Things Past”


Part 8

“People who are
not in love
fail to understand
how an intelligent man
can suffer
because of
a very ordinary woman.
This is like
being surprised
that anyone
should be stricken
with cholera
because of a creature
so insignificant
as the common bacillus.”
― Marcel Proust

“If You Forget Me”

camp fire great for poem

“If You Forget Me”

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats
that sail
toward those isles of yours that wait for me.

Well, now,
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by little.

If suddenly
you forget me
do not look for me,
for I shall already have forgotten you.

If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart where I have roots,
that on that day,
at that hour,
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off
to seek another land.

if each day,
each hour,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love, ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine.

~ Pablo Neruda ~

It’s not surprising that “Carol” was locked away in Hollywood’s development closet for 15 years. Based on Patricia Highsmith’s scandalous 1952 novel “The Price of Salt,” Todd Haynes’ latest movie is a double whammy by industry standards: it’s headlined by two women, who fall in love with each other.

The film, which stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, and premieres at the Cannes Film Festival on May 17, arrives at a pivotal, yet paradoxical, time for female-driven stories. There has been a string of hits this year that celebrate female empowerment — from “Insurgent” and “Fifty Shades of Grey” to “Cinderella,” and the upcoming “Trainwreck,” “Spy” and the final installment of “The Hunger Games.” That said, gender inequality both in front of and behind the camera is a hot-button issue in the global entertainment business.

This video is about the self-contained nature of mind and matter.

“Remnants” – Max Cooper and Tom Hodge -Official Video by Nick Cobby

The physical processing of sounds by the brain leave remnants in its structure as it learns about the outside world. Eventually the universe and the platonic realm of laws and structures are perceived. But while the natural laws and their resulting universe seem to create and contain the mind, the mind ultimately contains them all.

Are You Going

'a' to 'z' writing prompt poster #10

A-Z Writing Challenge #10
Are you going…

all is white leading to the white magical castle


Are you going away;
the past goes with you

B, the first letter of his name;
bitter endings

Car crashes kept happening;
take them all away

D, the first letter of his name;
death, too, it happens frequently

Every time alone;
in the dark or out of safe places

Forgetting their faces;
forgetting to forget them

G, the first letter of his name;
getting beyond it never over it

Having to hide from them;
hidden closed up inside

Inside was a good girl;
outside was used

J, the first letter of her name;
getting what is not deserved

Killing was a fantasy;
wanting to make it real – not

Life was lived outside the edge;
climbing trees, lifting off the ground

Memories were illusions;
illusions happen

Near death experiences;
walking on the air

Open caskets;
kissing lips of death and cold faces

Playing dangerous games;
ending in broken, dead bodies

Quitting life;
escaping what? – the future

Reality’s not a choice;
it’s an unwanted state of mind

S, the first letter of his name;
stamp out reality, give another possibility

Trading dreams for wishes;
finding neither works

Understand: with years of therapy,
original design is gone

Violence survives it all;
courage kills you

W, is the first letter of his name;
wanting innocence to return

X-rays showed broken bones;
pain the body hates

Young, don’t know what they’re doing;
older, want their bodies back

Zig-zagging all the ghosts abounding;
I hit a tree, the end of me
