The only thing I can recommend at this stage is a sense of humor, an ability to see things in their ridiculous and absurd dimensions, to laugh at others and at ourselves, a sense of irony regarding everything that calls out for parody in this world. In other words, I can only recommend perspective and distance.
― Václav Havel
How immense are those mountains? It’s hard to tell from a distance.
And the world cannot be discovered by a journey of miles,
no matter how long,
but only by a spiritual journey,
a journey of one inch,
very arduous and humbling and joyful,
by which we arrive at the ground at our feet,
and learn to be at home.
– Wendell Berry
During the month of May, I will be using black and white photography.
We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.
– Martin Luther King, Jr.
