"The other one, Borges, is to whom things happen. I walk through Buenos Aires, stop, maybe a bit mechanically, to look at the arch of an entrance way and a grillwork door; I have news from Borges by mail or when I see his name in a list of professors or in a biographical dictionary. I like hourglasses, maps, 18th-century typography, the taste of coffee, and Stevenson’s prose; the other shares those preferences but with a vanity that turns them into an actor’s attributes. It would be an exaggeration to affirm that our relationship is hostile; I live, I let myself live, so that Borges can plot his literature and that literature justifies me." Jorge Luis Borges / "Borges and I" #bw #toronto #borges #literature

"don't expect understanding, but believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance, and have faith that in this love there is a blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside of it" - Rainer Maria Rilke #bw #tiny_collective #rilke

“I think the main thing a musician would like to do is give a picture to the listener of the many wonderful things that he knows of and senses in the universe. That’s what music is to me—it’s just another way of saying this is a big, beautiful universe we live in, that’s been given to us, and here’s an example of how magnificent it is. That’s what I would like to do. I think that’s one of the greatest things you can do in life and we all try to do it in some way. The musician’s is through his music.” –John Coltrane, 1962 #tiny_collective

To me he embodied far more than a discography of music - but rather this fearless drive, a necessity to constantly recreate oneself. Had so much to say, but couldn't (not "didn't") let anyone dictate how it should be said, or how it should look. - a show-er, not a tell-er, and, as my friend @dan.cristea said, a "chameleon" who brought such comfort to all of our own weirdness, our largely, though undeniably, silent rebellion at status quo, at who "I" must be. "Throughout all of his alter egos and personas, he channeled us in our odd and peculiar ways." And the rest is rust and stardust. The stars never sleep. #stardust #aladdinsane #aslongasthereisfire #bw #thestarsneversleep #rebelrebel Image from SUE video (Bowie)

"In a night, or in a day, In a vision, or in none, Is it therefore the less gone? All that we see or seem Is but a dream within a dream. " Edgar Allan Poe #tinycollective | Archived collab with @koci
