The Milky Way.

είναι μερικές εκφράσεις, που είναι αδύνατο να μην προσπαθήσεις να τις αποτυπώσεις.
η τύπισσα στο σκίτσο είναι από frame της ταινίας The Milky way του Buñuel, και η φράση που πρώτη ήρθε στο μυαλό μου μόλις την είδα, ήταν:
"Thank God, I`m an atheist.", του ίδιου.

οι συνειρμοί με οδήγησαν και στον Υπεράνθρωπο του Νίτσε, αλλά αυτό είναι μια άλλη ιστορία, την οποία ενδεχομένως να μοιραστώ κάποια άλλη φορά : )


άχρηστη πληροφορία: ανακάλυψα καινούριο χαρτί κι ένα μολύβι που δεν θα ξέρω τί να κάνω μόλις τελειώσει. είμαι χαρούμενη.

this is interesting to me and i don't know if i can explain well enough. you say you are glad that you are an atheist and yet i feel that you and i are very much from the same source, operate as such, reflect similar scenes, emanations. and yet you write that you are atheist. and as i read this i feel the words, i am an atheist too, regardless of the god i sense, know, which is far from any traditional god, and so perhaps with my definition (recognition) being so fundamentally different from any religious sect, it rather belonging to a poetic sect, i can comfortably and honestly say, i am an atheist too. and yet i feel i have my hand on the knee of god. and yet i feel that god has its hand upon my knee.

i don't know how else to say it.

what is it in the picture that would have you breathe relief? no one need believe in god to raise their eyes and be in awe. are you not in awe? i think you must be. i can sense it in you. awe need not be without pain or even without deplorable circumstances. in fact, pain and deplorable circumstances must exist for there to be awe.

but this is a much lengthier conversation.

i am very curious. please don't receive this as a criticism. it's only that i see me reflected here and i want to understand myself as well as you.

(did you draw this?)

my dear erin, I think one can sense or feel a religious experience, without believing necessarily in a specific god.

i can feel what you mean, and in a mysterious way i can find myself into all these words of yours, and you reminded me of my past self being in awe, and being really desperate, but then again, i think that as i grow older, i more become a
dummy of senses, than a person of beliefs.

so, i can feel the presence and more often the absence of godhood, but not god himself.

I wish i am comprehensible to you, erin, and once again thank you for puzzling me.

the picture with this title is a typical irony, that i found really interesting to draw. her face with this grimace of gratefulness to a god that doesn't really exist is like a poem, isn't it?

godhood. i like this very much. forgive me if i've confused you to think i believe in a supreme dude. it is beyond this, much more like godhood. thank you for this.

irony is important. paradox more so.
