Here we are, another weekend gone. A weekend of popping illusions.
Surreal. Like the art of Man Ray. While in The Golden State we saw an exhibit of photos of Man Ray’s Paris studio. This weekend, we looked at a book of Man Ray’s photos and Rayograms; we watched his inventive short films featuring a starfish, giant dice, patterns of water reflections, a woman juggling fruit underwater, swirling lights of a carnival. Would have been fun to be one of the actors. Would be fun, enlivening to be in the midst of that innovation.
And so we’ll start another week, wondering what is real and what is just an illusion…
The one person who has more illusions than the dreamer is the man of action.
~ Oscar Wilde
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
~ Mark Twain
