Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty. Cite Arrow

The title of the work is identical to a series of photographs by Huseyin shot in Odessa, showing curtains blowing in the wind. These images inspired an installation of hardened lace curtains, frozen in time and space. The work refers to the gesture of opening the windows to set free the soul of the deceased, as well as the idea of a spirit present in a room, mysteriously lifting the curtains to reveal its presence.

As fas as dreams go, last night topped them all

Forget about that time I was stranded 10,000 ft high on a mountain top
with the armageddon fully blooming,
matter disintegrating and purple sky liquefying
while I was holding a yoga pose in complete serenity.

Last night I dreamt of an unknown lover,
killing him and running from vampires,
finding a cute girl and living with her and her daughter in a shady motel room,rusty sink, mold greenish wallpaper flaking off and all that,
and I kissed her while her kid disappeared into foggy darkness,
never to come back,
I was wearing plaid and my conscious was clear
even with all that blood on my hands -
her lips were also bloody.

The vampires returned and then we tried
running from them on the rooftops at night. 
I guess the moral of the story was
There’s no point in running from vampires.

Today darling I am rising
from the lavender bathtub
of self-loathing. I don’t take drugs
to shut up I take off
my pants when I get home
and I stay there, red cup full
of cigarettes from heaven, ghosts
of all my friends between my toes.
I imagine them pouring vodka all over
each other wearing glitter.
The vision is closing in like a tight dress.

I want something else. I’m not even sure what to call it anymore except I know it feels roomy and it’s drenched in sunlight and it’s weightless and I know it’s not cheap. It’s probably not even real. Cite Arrow Mark Z. Danielewski, House of Leaves  (via wethinkwedream)

Everything is more beautiful
because we’re doomed.
You will never be lovelier than you are now.
We will never be here again.
