restless...........


Leonid Pasternak - By The Window -Autumn, 1913


To put meaning in one's life,

may end in madness,

But life without meaning

is torture

Of restlessness and vague desire

It is a boat longing for the sea

and yet,

afraid.

Edgar Lee Masters

intrigued by Masters. So many poets writers and artists have colorful and insane lives... fun collage, especialy like the fiery view out the window.

tom: Hey, Thanks.......I keep thinking all the creative people tend to simply live outside the box of most others is all.

layers said...

great connection between Masters, your collage and the words-- the connection between life, art and madness-- creativity has to be outside the box.

I like the Pasternak, it si beautiful. I've never heard of him. I've heard of Boris Pasternak. Are they related? Now I'm going to have to look it all up.

The pursuit of purpose and meaning truly can be one sharp double-edged sword, can't it?

I've got a little surprise for you man ... drop by.

Hi! C.M., and Sam Juliano,
What a very interesting quote by Edgar Lee Masters and thanks, for the link and the painting

Leonid Pasternak's - By The Window -Autumn, 1913 is very nice too!
[I must admit that I had to do a Google search and discovered that he was a Post-Impressionist artist.]
Thanks, for sharing!

C.M.,just like Sam Juliano said, I hope that you and your readers, had a pleasant and safe holiday.

DeeDee ;-D
