not even








Soit blessure, soit bonheur, il me prend parfois l'envie de m'abîmer...
c'est qu'il n'y a plus de place pour moi nulle part, même pas dans la mort.


Roland Barthes
(Fragments d'un discours amoureux)














Be it wound or happiness, sometimes i long to sink into an abyss...
It is because there is no longer any place for me anywhere, not even in death.

  1. Forgiveness - Misen Groth

    I'm ... I'm a roamer in time
    I travel alone
    Throughout an endless journey

    Home ... where is my home
    Fragments of a love life
    I won't surrender

    When the spirits are calling my name
    Then I will have passed all the sorrow and pain

    and I`ll go to heaven with you
    I´ll lay down my head on your pillow
    and ask for forgiveness

    Once I was just a child
    I saw wide open
    You left me broken hearted

    Fly ... I have to fly
    Searching for the light
    I won't surrender

    When the spirits are calling my name
    Then I will have passed all the sorrow and pain

    and I`ll go to heaven with you
    I´ll lay down my head on your pillow
    and ask for forgiveness

    I ... I'm a roamer in time
    I travel alone
    Throughout an endless journey

    Home ... where is my home
    Fragments of a love life
    I won't surrender

    When the spirits are calling my name
    Then I will have passed all the sorrow and pain

    and I`ll go to heaven with you
    I´ll lay down my head on your pillow
    and ask for forgiveness

    … Hier sind die Worte einer wundervollen Filmmusik einer mich sehr faszinierenden Filmserie (The eagle mit Jens Albinus), die ich Dir widmen möchte, liebe Roxana, weil mich Dein letztes Bild so sehr daran erinnert. Leider kann ich Dir das Lied nicht vorspielen, mir geht es tief ins Herz!

    Ein ganz schöne und ruhige Nacht - und guten Tee :-)! - wünsche ich Dir, Roxana!

  4. What dark angel
    Haunts your night ?

    Funny, today I was out in a strange town, and found a bar named "Black Angel", might be a good place to talk through the darkness ?

  6. Sometimes one sees the world as if through a long black veil.

  7. the abyss, the heavens, but nowhere in between is enough...

  8. the lines won't be any longer those of descent, but of ascent.

  9. c'est presque dramatiquement beau et " La beauté (contrairement à la laideur) ne peut vraiment s'expliquer : elle se dit, s'affirme, se répète en chaque partie du corps mais ne se décrit pas.
    [Roland Barthes]
    je t'embrasse tendrement...:o)

  10. Mais ça va pas d'avoir des idées pareilles...:)
    Tes photos sont bien belles, romantiques à souhait... mais quelles ténébreuses idées ! ! !
    Roxana, La vie est belle, quoiqu'il en soit ! ! ! Même si t'es callée derrière ton bureau à taper derrière un clavier, je sais que tu ne peux avoir de telles idées !
    Bon, sur ce, j'avais dit que j'en terminais avec les blogs !...(8[

    Roxana, t'aurais pas une soeur qui habite plus près ?...:)

    Ciao Miss... et prends soin de toi... qui que tu sois ! ! !

    Bises et amitiés...(8]

  12. ... but this is the darkness after the stars have died, and we can't remember language ... you carry it here in your open hands, and my breath freezes in my throat, and i am only the ecstatic echo of your black gaze....

  13. Renée, ein wunderschoenes Lied, und sehr passendes, ja - aber wirklich sehr sehr schoen, es hat mich so tief beruehrt! habe vielen Dank dafuer, so eine Entdeckung...





    merc: perhaps you can see the influence of your paintings and drawings, i struggle to liberate the lines and let them float freely, reaching deep into that realm of archetypes which returns us to the origins of the form. of course, this is almost impossible with photos, but still...

  14. Owen, and you took me with you on that strange trip of yours, for that i am so grateful... thank you, from all my heart.





    billoo, i'm trying to find something funny to answer, but i can't - i suppose that was a joke?
    (i haven't seen the Addams family)





    thank you, Jon.





    louciao - indeed one does. but if one manages to create beautiful images through that dark veil, then at least there is a consolation (i think)





    Dianne, yes this thirst and this longing...





    Robert, rather: ascent and descent at the same time, what about that? (and not becoming mad)
    but your hope is so beautiful and your kindness toward me (the others) huge, as always.

  15. ...all light flickering a fire on the cave wall, a fire inside a heart...

  18. James: this is the darkness after language, yes. i still entertain the illusion that it is possible to achieve it, in an image.
    your praise overwhelms me -





    merc: but only a few can see that light, that fire...
