"

What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore—
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over —
like a syrupy sweet?

Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.

Or does it explode?

"
Langston Hughes (via matthewolf)

LSD, 2012

"After taking LSD. I lit up a candle in the middle of the woods and during the 30 seconds of exposure, I meditated about the holism of nature surrounding me. Feeling the crystal vibration irradiating from the center of the Gaia mother earth. So in these pictures, I try to show you the magic, sacred metaphysical quality of the nature and new age bullshiting you."

Devouring a book
As I have shown in previous posts (like this one), medieval and early-modern books were damaged not just by the hands of their readers, but also by animals. Hungry animals, that is. Mice and beetles in particular loved to dig into the parchment and paper pages, devouring words in an unwanted way. This big hole in a 17th-century Italian manuscript is an extreme example, fortunately, through it is symptomatic for the fact that books are constantly under attack from nibbling creatures - who are as persistent as they are hungry. It is only in the care of a good library that such old books can lean back in peace, knowing they are safe.
