goodbye

many days had passed away

and now the time has come

the time to say goodbye to anyone

the time to say goodbye to people whom we learned to love

people whom we shared the joys and sorrows all the way

today marks the day that we will start missing you

to forget you is hard for us to do

soon we will be leaving

soon we will be going

soon we will be missing you

Porto Alegre, Brazil

Back to our tour of World Cup cities… today’s stop is Porto Alegre. Just a bit about this city from FIFA’s profile: “Porto Alegre lies on the eastern bank of the Guaíba River, right at the convergence point of five other rivers, which together form the enormous Lagoa dos Patos (Ducks Lagoon).” You can see more of these photographers’ works by clicking on each pic below.

Never Gonna to Leave This Bed

Wet Bliss

Some eye candy to lift the mood. Great music to clear away Monday gloom. And for those out there that are rock solid, or those who are struggling and about to slip – this one’s for you.

Take it, take it all, take all that I have
Take it, take it all, take all that I have
Take it, take it all, take all that I have
Take it, take it all, take all that I have

The Audience

Kinda silhoutte.

Who do we write for? Who do you imagine when you type the words in the glowing white box of your choice?

Maybe it’s a side-effect of my own checkered past in the theatre, but I spend a lot of time wondering about them, out there in the darkness.  In all my art 2014-02-27 23.36.04[ARTZ tm] there’s a need for the receiver, a tacit covenant with the other end of the line. I cannot transmit into a vacuum, I have to know that someone, somewhere is tuning in – and like many monkey-brains I need immediate verification of that fact. The few times I’ve tried some mediums without that component I’ve felt like my feet are nailed to the floor.
