This is powerful.
so it is. therefore I topped it with the title: final-song:word.less (the German expression is hard to translate with its undertones). sometimes I feel, I´ve said too much… should shut my mouth & keep on painting… (“I´d rather be painting” as you letter your blog)
curious – found some words of Shakespeare´s king Richard III today that may express my feelings:
Dive, thoughts, down to my soul: here Clarence comes….
…But I, that am not shap´d for sportive tricks,
Nor made to court an amorous looking-glass;
I that am rudely stamp´d, and want love´s majesty
To strut before a wanton ambling nymph;
I, that am curtail´d of this fair proportion,
Cheated of feature by dissembling nature,
Deform´d, unfinish´d, sent before my time
Into this breathing world, scarce half made up,
And that so lamely and unfashionable
That dogs bark at me, as I halt by them;
Why, I, in this weak piping time of peace,
Have no delight to pass away the time,
Unless to see my shadow in the sun
And descant in mine own deformity:
And therefore, since I cannot prove a lover,
To entertain these fair well spoken days,
I am determined to prove a villain,
And hate the idle pleasures of these days.
I like the title: final-song:word.less
and your shakepeare’s king Richard III
I think it is impossible for us “shut our mouths” when so much stirs in our the mind & heart.
even to paint is not silence ..for painting is still our words spilling out onto the canvas.
I think I would go insane if I could not paint..then again maybe I already am…eh?🙂
try to use paper instead of canvas – it demands silence & more concentration to your reflections.
Interesting observation…the next time I work on paper I will take notice.
I answered your email but it was returned. Not sure why because I just replied to your email.
Anyway, I will try to get your translation. I have put the wheels in motion…so we will see.
Like you, I support the arts…I donated two pieces this year for different causes.🙂
I will be in touch.
do not reply by tab, tip in my correct mail-adress, others told me they had the same problem (don´t ask me why). – & thanks for your efforts!
