one thing i like about instagram is i don’t have to come up with titles for everything
finally sorted me out my ‘instagram’ account – it’ll be a little more selective & include photos of things other than my drawings (probably).
I pray thee, peace. I will be flesh and blood;
For there was never yet philosopher
That could endure the toothache patiently,
However they have writ the style of gods,
And made a push at chance and sufferance.
‘Much Ado About Nothing’ W. Shakespeare.
I am reading Mr S’s comedies – some of them for the first time. so much mischief and melancholy

I really think that I don’t mind people sleeping during my films, because I know that some very good films might prepare you for sleeping or falling asleep or snoozing. It’s not to be taken badly at all.Abbas Kierastami
A beautiful statement.
I think that in life, being is nothing but an illusion. If we acknowledge that and accept the fact that we are in between states, that we are moving, and this movement is the nature of our lives, and we stop having aspirations for being in a definite state, we know life better and are able to enjoy it better.Abbas Kierastami
I’ve been browsing Kierastami quotes. I admire his apparent love of football metaphors.
I also admire his refusal to preach and distrust of those that preach.
The above quote puts me in mind of Patrick Keiller speaking on narrative (& Tristram Shandy).
