Quote Of The Day

#6
Not a short one...

We tell ourselves stories in order to live. The princess is caged in the consulate. The man with the candy will lead the children into the sea. The naked woman on the ledge outside the window on the sixteenth floor is a victim of accident, or the naked woman is an exhibitionist, and it would be ‘interesting’ to know which. We tell ourselves that it makes some difference whether the naked woman is about to commit a mortal sin or is about to register a political protest or is about to be, the Aristophanic view, snatched back to the human condition by the fireman in priest’s clothing just visible in the window behind her, the one smiling at the telephoto lens. We look for the sermon in the suicide, for the social or moral lesson in the murder of five. We interpret what we see, select the most workable of the multiple choices. We live entirely… by the imposition of a narrative line upon disparate images, by the ‘ideas’ with which we have learned to freeze the shifting phantasmagoria — which is our actual experience.”

-Joan Didion

Oh @shatter eyes :):inlove: !

Yes @PURUSHA , think that was the White Diaries- or something like that (?): where they diagnosed her with a million psychological issues for her dizziness- and it turned out to be MS? :(
"I'm a spokesman for a hope so radical that it's been called shit-for-brains." ~Terence McKenna
^^ OMG @Tornadic Thoughts , that is hillarious. :laugh: You know- I hope this is ok?- I read this thing where it said, ~don't make a resolution for the new year, pick a slogan. I couldn't find one, thought live love laugh, something like that- but I could never remember it. :laugh: But, as a person not used to 'hop(ing)', that quote is perfect and I will tell someone it everyday, lol! :laugh: I think I will say, "I've been called.." (I've never minded being called 'stupid'. :) :laugh: ) Thank you! And pulling for your family :hug:
