Every true love story is a story of bad timing.

"I began to consider, upon the thought of "permanently" relocating, everything New York had made me. When I arrived, I was like a half-carved sculpture, my personality still an undefined image. But the city wears you down, chisels away at everything you don’t need, streamlines your emotions and character until you are hard cut, fully defined, and perfect like a Rodin sculpture. That is something truly wonderful, the kind of self-crystallization not available in any other city. But then, if you stay too long, it keeps on wearing you down, chipping away at traits you cherish, character that you’ve earned. Stay forever, and it will grind you down to nothing."

Jacob Tomsky, “Heads In Beds” p. 237. (via dudeinpublishing)

Villette

But I learned in time that this benignity, this cordiality, this music, belonged in no shape to me: it was a part of himself; it was the honey of his temper; it was the balm of his mellow mood; he imparted it, as the ripe fruit rewards, with sweetness the rifling bee; he diffused it about him, as sweet plants shed their perfume. Does the nectarine love either the bee or bird it feeds? Is the sweetbriar enamoured of the air?

theparisreview:

The “Keep Calm and Carry On” poster that launched millions of profoundly vacuous parodies is seventy-five years old today—but it was only first seen in 2001. The British Treasury refrained from printing it during World War II because they thought “the phrase was ‘too commonplace to be inspiring … it may even annoy people.’” Prescient.

the-drawing-center:

An upcoming Drawing Center exhibition, Small., is on view July 11-August 24. This group show features a selection of international contemporary artists who adopt an intimate format to explore issues related to visual perception, personal and historical memory, and the power of the imagination.

Small. includes work by Claire Harvey. In Easily Removable People, 2006, Harvey depicts nameless individuals on small swatches of transparent tape; they are city dwellers on their way to work, stopping to talk to a friend, exchanging an embrace—people we encounter both everywhere and nowhere. Clustering numerous pieces of tape on the gallery wall, Harvey’s installation is a mural of the intimacy and anonymity of urban life and as such it echoes the experience of the viewers, who must physically approach the work to peer at tiny figures that remain ultimately unknowable and distant.
