Paint in mind from a distance

M 87

Teasing stilettos, paint in mind from a distance.
The human brain paints pictures all the time, always it is on.
Sometimes a dream, a thought, an illusion, an assessment or a conjecture.
At other times it does as it feel for, without regard for the one who carries it around.

The world today doesn’t make sense, so why should I paint pictures that do

It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child
*Two quotes of Pablo Picasso – spanish painter*

I dream of painting and then I paint my dream
*Vincent van Gogh – dutch painter*

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference
*Winston Churchill – english statesman*

We react much to others’ attitudes also when we misunderstand them
but we wonder that others misinterpret us due to our own attitudes.

In a way today we all french

Whenever I hear anyone arguing for slavery,
I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally

The french people’s desire for freedom is stronger
than their fear  of the cowards of the darkness.

Progress have to be fluent


A vessel named “Progress”.

We are often waiting so long to take one real step forward that we not detect
that the right solution might have been to take a step back and two forward
track of progress is often a path that isn’t pre-track already.

“The only real progress lies in learning to be wrong all alone
(Albert Camus – algerian-french philosopher and author)

Progress almost never come in a hurry and doesn’t always look like progress from start.

Coming together is a beginning
keeping together is progress
working together is success
(Henry Ford – american businessman)

Early winterly morning mood


Cozy thursday or creepy thursday
pure foggy morning mood.

When I “at the dawn of time” learned to read, I found Alfred Hitchcock very inspiring
more than all the children’s books I got recommended by parents and teachers.

Seeing a murder on television can help work off one’s antagonisms.
and if you haven’t any antagonisms, the commercials will give you some“.
(Alfred Hitchcock)

Luck is everything – my good luck in life was to be a really frightened person
I’m fortunate to be a coward, to have a low threshold of fear,
because a hero couldn’t make a good suspense film
(Alfred Hitchcock)

Nowadays television doesn’t help in separating fiction and reality
commercials is considered being reality and the news is perceived as entertainment.

Wet danish christmas mood


Danish atmosphere seen late tuesday afternoon the 24th.

In Denmark there’s always the expectation of a snowy Christmas Eve
in fact these expectations are more a hope
actually it happens only a few times each century
so instead of singing the Bing Crosby song “White Christmas”
so should the danes sing the Gene Kelly song “I’m singing in the rain”.

It’s a moment with lots of traditions and good intentions.

I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars
and open a jar of it every month
(Harlan Miller – english writer and artist, born in Yorkshire)

Just imagine if we humans could treat each other like this throughout the year.

I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six
my mother took me to see him in a department store
and he asked for my autograph

By the way what's wrong with rain..?

Happy Holidays, everyone…!!!

Because we’re worth it


Happiness is just as difficult to define as pouring sunshine in a bottle
so believe it comes by itself is perhaps naively
it is more reasonable to believe it should canvassed
maybe we in a way have to be motivated to tackle happiness.

It is often said that in order to enjoy the fabulous views from the peak of the mountain
then we have to take the path up through the dark ravines and steep slopes
perhaps real happiness is not a stationary feeling, but a string of pearls ..?

Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened
(Theodor Seuss Geisel – american writer, poet and cartoonist)

Happiness isn’t something ready made, it comes from your own actions
(Dalai Lama XIV – awarded and charismatic leader of Tibet since 1950)
