How many times have I thought, 'O Matsushima' about a place, a happening, a person. And I loved the silence that followed. I felt validated reading this book. Something inside I have always known that has always been intimate was greeted as a friend ...more

“This is our moment in the mighty continuum of art and life. Real art knows no boundaries; it communicates across all times, across all cultures. Art is as much an aspect of our species as the opposable thumb, and just as prevalent.”
Richard Bledsoe, Remodern America: How the Renewal of the Arts Will Change the Course of Western Civilization

“One thing that I had loved in Paraguay was the ironic grass that showed the tip of its nose between the pavements of the capital, that slipped in on behalf of the invisible but ever-present virgin forest to see if man still held the town, if the hour had not come to send all those stones tumbling.

- from Wind, Sand and Stars by Antoine St. Exupery (1939)”

Yann Martel
“If you stumble about believability, what are you living for? Love is hard to believe, ask any lover. Life is hard to believe, ask any scientist. God is hard to believe, ask any believer. What is your problem with hard to believe?”
Yann Martel, Life of Pi

Tim O'Brien
“They carried all they could bear, and then some, including a silent awe for the terrible power of the things they carried.”
Tim O'Brien, The Things They Carried

“The presence of God is the finest of rewards.”
