Yes, we are going to suffer.


"I once read in a biography of Van Gogh how his teacher said to him, “To experience suffering , and not happiness, is of far greater importance to a devastated heart”. Van Gogh replied that if a painter has not suffered, he has nothing to paint; happiness deadened the senses, the artist needed suffering as his nourishment. I, too, believe that too much happiness can muddy the goals of life."

and to think we don't even need any string or rope to suffer. our bodies come with their own. but certainly these images are poignant ones and ones that demand thought.

and more music that speaks to me:) thank you))

seems like we feel claustrophobic under our own skin, erin.
