Layers of Meaning & Feeling

I had to post this when I read it, so so true…

there is such a gulf between what we need to express and what we actually say. a dual language of the (un)spoken. to step back into the real world after journeying with the Fishers was like walking out of therapy. i need you is masked by i hate that i need you is masked by i don’t need you is masked by i hate you is masked by… and so on. we are layers of meaning and feelings…

Summer & Chucks

I got new shoes today… finally! Brand new pair of yellow Chuck Taylor All Star Converse… so beautiful. They make me happy… yellow makes me happy… it reminds me of summer and joy.

In other news, all the Paris pictures I plan to upload are now on Flickr. I have some exciting news on the photography front too, but I shall save that for later, keep you guessing!

I’m back in Ireland for a week or so leading up to Easter. It’ nice to be in the countryside again 🙂

Thought I’d share a picture from a few days ago in Glasgow… the weather has been beautiful lately…

Oh and, a huge hat-tip to an amazing friend of mine, no names mentioned, but they bought me a new book the other day… a lovely suprise blessing.

Revived By The Kiss Of The Love

Last Monday I spent some time in the Louvre, as I mentioned in an earlier post. There are some more pictures from my Paris trip, some Louvre ones too, on my Flickr now.

One of the sculptures I was captivated by is “PsychĂ© ranimĂ©e par le baiser de l’Amour” by Antonio Canova. (I get the feeling I like Italian art more than any others?)

This sculpture by Antonio Canova recreates the moment at which Psyche awakens from her deathly sleep by the kiss of Eros. The dynamic sculpture conveys a deep sense of love, passion and energy as Eros sweeps from the sky to awaken Psyche from her slumber. Psyche throws up her arms elegantly to receive Eros’ kiss.

There’s more background information on this sculpture here.
