• The realm of the soul is the realm of dreams, of creativity, of emotion, and the true spark of life in every life.
    Christine Torres

    Dreams show us how to find a meaning in our lives, how to fulfill our own destiny, how to realize the greater potential of life within us.
    Marie Louise von Franz

    We should not pretend to understand the world only by the intellect. The judgement of the intellect is only part of the truth.
    Carl Jung

    Those who do not know how to weep with their whole heart don't know how to laugh either.
    Golda Meir

I've always thought it an interesting piece. (And Norwegian makes a diff to me, "roots" thing). But the "dark places" in my soul don't relate to it. It's muuuch too bright and cheery for that.


I've always wonderedif "seasonal affective disorder" might have had some influence on some (heh, most? *s*) of Munch's work. Never know, of course. His painting reminds me of some of Kierkegaard's personas (and a lot of Kierkegaard's emotional life). Not quite existential, more genuine emotion than that. I could have seen him designing sets for some very... unusual Henrik Ibsen productions.

Munch: the unofficial godfather of German expressionism? Some powerful, moving stuff. (Some move me to ask simply, Why? )


But where are the purty flars?

I said, "How sad that's it has never been..."

Shaking head...see? I can't even compose a decent sentence! :)

That's exactly what I saw when I looked in the mirror this morning! ;-)

This primal scream painting has always been a favorite of mine. How sad that's it has never been recovered.
