If you forget me:

If You Forget Me

by Pablo Neruda
I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats
that sail
toward those isles of yours that wait for me.

Well, now,
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by little.

If suddenly
you forget me
do not look for me,
for I shall already have forgotten you.

If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart where I have roots,
remember
that on that day,
at that hour,
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off
to seek another land.

But
if each day,
each hour,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love, ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine

Architecture School Year One Status: COMPLETE

"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. "

brain contents: writing, thinking thoughts

DRAFT AIR

a draft through the door hitting the floor
cold ankles - cankles spankles
Spank you Thank you but mostly spank you
for entertaining me ( and for other things)
i haven't played this game in a while
not since before my 21st birthday
the number 21 is interesting
it doesn't change you
its raining- i cant tell if i like it more than perpetual waters
or more than sky

i like when sky meets water
or when clouds meet mountains
sky and mountains are best friends
and water and sand are best friends
they move perpetually but they still are best friends
they always meet again
things arent ever over between them
the line remains relentlessly untouched but touched
by the relationship between air and water
or fluid solids or solid solids next to fluid fluids
or fluids with solid fluids

its like what one has the other doesnt and thats why they need eachother
otherwise where does one thing end and one thing begin? OR
how can you understand one from another if one is next to what it is rather than what it is NOT.
I can understand things by what they are not,
not by what they are.
i know hard things when they are next to soft, you get it?
its sort of like recognition through process of elimination
or articulating the existence of an entity based on what it is not

moving things and still things are also really interesting
to understand
or things that fly
dense things
or really really light things
and the in between things
or the thingness of an thing and by thing i mean idea

And I also really love how Norah jones sings it in this one:

Old me

Just found a few videos from a year ago of me working in my old apt in boston, sometimes i wish i was a huge loner again. life seemed so much more poetic.

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

Existential: wtf!?!? Recently, I realized that because I decided to be ambitious and impulsive and go to Cooper Union to study architecture I can't really travel. I also will never really have a break. I feel exceptionally exhausted from this kind of life. I'm feeling sort of like I want to have a life where I enjoy myself and things and events and the world. I wonder if this will happen before I'm 30. Maybe. For now I'll probably just have these ideas in my head about where I could be- it seems that because of my past I get over things and want something else and then I get what I want and- turns out its not so great. So, I think I'll stick to cooper until I'm 25.

I will also just day dream about perpetual waters and mountains with clouds as best friends and making paintings.
