Art. Books. Films. Music. Quotes

"Often we read, hear or watch something and become inspired for that moment and then we forget it again to continue in our way."

I like to talk with people about their favourite books, films and music. It's not that I know that person as good as I would a adventure with them together, but it's a first step to learn a person to know and if we have similarities.

Books to read and films to watch is a good way to start but there is no substitute for going there (Y. Chouinard)

When you buy something from an artist
you're buying more than an object.
You're buying hundreds of hours of errors  and experimentation.
You're buying years of frustration and moments of pure joy.
You're not buying just one thing,
you're buying a piece of a heart, 
a piece of a soul...
a small piece of someone elses life.
(Token Queen of Pottery)

Maybe films, talks, songs are too fast for us to truly understand the worlds. Maybe we have to read more books again. Maybe we have to read them loud and a few times the same passage again and again to fully understand a meaning.

I'm normally not a friend of movies but some documentaries and movies are just beautiful and not just a time killer but we have to focus on them completely and not just watch them beside doing something else.
