Te rencontrer
Sans te reduire
Te desirer
Sans te posseder
Sans t'envahir
Te dire
Sans me trahir
Te garder
Sans te devorer
Sans te perdre
Sans te guider
Et etre ainsi moi-meme
eux plus secret de toi.
Jacques Salome

l'heure bleue

The blue hour, it’s is not really an hour, it’s a minute. Just before dawn, there is a minute of silence. Day birds are not awake yet and night birds are already asleep (…) Silence in nature, that’s scary! (…) It’s the only moment where one feels nature stops breathing. And that’s scary!!” - Quatre Aventures de Reinette et Mirabelle, Eric Rohmer, 1987

on the way to work this morning inscribed on the Pulaski Bridge:
"Like the stars in a constellation, her eyes, nose and lips, so perfectly aligned to form the most complete smile." For Susan from J.

so moving, so touching...

new work space

Went to see Rohmer's Adventures of Reinette et Mirabelle. Beyond the adorable actresses and nostalgic 80s fashion, the depth and exploration of friendship, difference, and the evolution of maturity in our human lives had me thinking throughout the night into the morning. Are we not all Reinette and Mirabelle? At least I found myself feeling like Reinette, striving to become the serene and rational Mirabelle. Perhaps one day....

I consider myself quite fortunate to have such talented friends. Mike Reddy, one of my first colleagues in New York, is one of them. Here is a smart kick ass project he is illustrating for the month of July. I won't be missing a day of it!
