I had Smultronstället (Wild Strawberries) for brunch first thing upon waking up the other day (ha ha). The film was the perfect catalyst for the transition from a block-nosed sniffling noon grogginess to a soft, pensive reflection on life.
It is not a movie of epic spiritual and emotional…

I think I grew up watching too many horror movies.
I would really love some feedback !
On the streets: the Berlin Bear taking a break; a woman leading a life size puppet man in a dance
Berlin and its monuments: the Victory Column and Brandenburg Tor (Gate)
Just got back from an amazing 4 nights + 4 days in the German capital that, unlike the other European cities visited in Italy/France or even Spain, has very little reverence for what came before and channels all their energy, strength and focus into what is to come. The City is literally and tangibly constructing its way into the future - it’s understandable given the historical context - cranes, scaffolding, and work sites are rampant in every nook and cranny.
A sculpture in the Musée Rodin, a painting in the Musée d’Orsay, and a couple post dyke-march at Washington Square Park in 2009.
One tugs the other by the hand, pulling her closer while pushing the rest of the world away like a boat leaving behind the shore, they waltz in a timeless, exclusive isolation.
the greatest of these may be love, but faith and hope are still pretty damn important
