„Keep a notebook. Travel with it, eat with it, sleep with it. Slap into it every stray thought that flutters up in your brain. Cheap paper is less perishable than gray matter, and lead pencil markings endure longer than memory.“

― Jack London, 1903

„A kind of light spread out from her. And everything changed color. And the world opened out. And a day was good to awaken to. And there were no limits to anything. And the people of the world were good and handsome. And I was not afraid any more.“

― John Steinbeck, East of Eden

31. Dezember 2017 – Big Art

31. Dezember 2017

Make big art, not small scribbles. Try to draw a circle so huge that there is no way you can finish it while you are alive. All you can see is an arch; the rest is beyond your vision, but it is there in the distance. (Shigeaki Hinokara)

I’m not writing it down to be organized later, I’m writing it down to be organized now.

But first, coffee.

Dies ordinarius – gewöhnlicher Tag.

Man weiß von Goethe, dass er seine Umwelt zu Tagebuchaufzeichnungen anhielt und seine nächste Umgebung zu solchen Aufzeichnungen geradezu verpflichtete.
