urban spaceman

painting by jane b

To exist is to change

to change is to mature

to mature is to go on

creating oneself endlessly.

Henri Berqson

French Philosopher
1859 - 1941

C.M., I can't believe I got rid of this album! Oh the sacrifices I've had to make. I especially like the last verse. And that painting...that I like :)

great ! (love the bllloiiiing at the very end of the song.)

And the painting. And the quote.

(Think I'll play the song again - but full blast so my neighbors can enjoy it too. Here goes:" I'm the urban spaceman la-da-da-dee-la- dee-da...)

have a good one, cm. :-)

'here comes the twist...i don't exist' ...?
how surreal

tut-tut said...

Existence is change from moment to moment. I'll have to think about the relation to Kurt's Rilke quote.

Your friend is a wonderful artist. I like this as well as the mail boxes. I'm trying not to dwell too much on the Buddha in the trailer and what does it mean?

C.M. let me know on the BDDDB CD's, if you need anything. That reminds me, you have something on my blog, to claim :) Thank you!

hot! love the painting and the quote!

A.Decker said...

I want to live like the Urban Spaceman!

A.Decker said...

In the painting, I mean. Couldn't listen to the song. TV, again :-(

ArtSparker said...

Wonderful painting. it's delightful.

A long shot, but I'm going to check to see if this is my friend Terry's friend Jane...

A.Decker said...

Well, ok. I went and got the headphones. Zany. Nice. And I hear that if I'm to live like the urban spaceman, I don't exist, a condition I sometimes wonder about anyhow.
What I liked more than that, though, even though I can only see about 2/3 of the video, is Rupa and the April Fishes. Talk about a toe-tapper! Yow!
Also, is that painting in your sidebar with woodland landscape painted over furniture by Jane B. as well? Either way, I like that one.

n: Changing for someone else, not to good, but 4 yourself, the best way to go.

decker: Yes indeed.

and a big Thanks to everyone else for stopping by too ; )
