Simple, A Photograph of Books July 16, 2014One Street Shy “One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple.” – Jack Kerouac Share this:TwitterFacebookPinterestLike this:Like Loading... Related
How treacherous words are. The more we use the more we need to explain the others.
–Sergio Sant’Anna (Brazilian writer)
The above quote and photo, they can be seen as paradoxical in a way. Kerouac’s hope of achieving the simple while the books are pilled up forming ever growing complex systems, integrating dust and spiders.
“Kerouac’s hope” should be read as “Kerouac’s certainty.” He only was doubting when he would find those right simple words.
And so you understood the many words piled up on the floor and the paradox of “simple”
So, in other words, I had a very good insight… into the obvious.
All words are right words. Words = magic. 🙂
What a lovely comment – and how true. Thank you
Could be my room … 🙂
I think it’s pretty depictive of lots of our rooms. Mine is also my art studio, so as you can imagine, it’s awfully full!
You are absolutely right. Most probably, we even can’t take it in any other way … 🙂
