"The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle: a novel by Haruki Murakami, cut paper, 40.5 cms circumference, 2008" by Stefana McClure, an artist from Northern Ireland (now in New York). This piece is a copy of the book, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, taken apart, cut it into strips, stuck all of the strips back together again in a continuous line and then wound the whole thing back up into a ball.

Alexandre Desplat - Dreamcatcher

Cappuccino in Ascoli Piceno, Italy (by bautisterias)

"For there must be
kindness somewhere else in the world,
maybe even out of it, though I’m not crazy
about the emptiness of outer space. I have to live
here, with finite life and inner space and with
the horrible desire to love everything and be disappointed."

Ron Padgett’s Collected Poems

RIP Lauren Bacall (September 16, 1924 – August 12, 2014)

“She lowered her lashes until they almost cuddled her cheeks and slowly raised them again, like a theatre curtain. I was to get to know that trick. That was supposed to make me roll over on my back with all four paws in the air.”
― Raymond Chandler, The Big Sleep

(Photo: Bacall and Humphrey Bogart in Howard Hawks' The Big Sleep, 1946).

"If you love the good thing vitally, enough to give up for it all that one must give up, then you must hate the cheap thing just as hard. I tell you, there is such a thing as creative hate! A contempt that drives you through fire, makes you risk everything and lose everything, makes you a long sight better than you ever knew you could be."
