I’m in a lousy headspace today. The depressive side of my bipolar is at least half-rampant –if rampant happened to be the heraldic term for laying on the couch. I’m just sorta perched on the edge, waiting for something that’s never coming. Hence, half-rampant.
So I thought I share some photos which I feel depict alienation quite well… plus instructions for their use by the lay person…
Iron rusts from disuse water loses its purity from stagnation and in cold weather becomes frozen even so does inaction sap the vigors of the mind. –Leonardo DaVinci
“Most of us need something not to walk away from” ― Josh Stern
“Man is not what he thinks he is, he is what he hides.” ― André Malraux
“The world is a prison in which solitary confinement is preferable.” ― Karl Kraus
“Whereas the beautiful is limited, the sublime is limitless, so that the mind in the presence of the sublime, attempting to imagine what it cannot, has pain in the failure but pleasure in contemplating the immensity of the attempt” ― Immanuel Kant, Critique of Pure Reason
“And pictures of perfection, as you know, make me sick and wicked.”
― Jane Austen
“Expose yourself to as much randomness as possible.” ― Ben Casnocha
Welcome to Heaven’s Most Holy Orchestra! Here’s your triangle.
I honestly hope this helps you the next time you wish to illustrate your alienation. Take care.
