Enfant Terrible

Children are inexperienced, not innocent. Fluent liars, manipulative upon arrival, they carry prodigious, unarticulated, ever-growing knowledge with them.
A six year old knows if his father’s a loser, his uncle’s a queer, knows his mother is terrified of sexual intercourse. Well before six, a child knows what he can safely get away with, and how to make hurtful actions look unintended. Children glean early how to see through and defend against the Gargantuan monsters known as their parents.
Children look innocent in photographs. Their faces haven’t weathered enough life to betray what lies behind them.
- Gary Indiana


Insel meiner Angst

Hildegard Knef

Crossing Over

To be shaken out of the ruts of ordinary perception, to be shown for a few timeless hours the outer and inner world, not as they appear to an animal obsessed with survival or to a human being obsessed with words and notions, but as they are apprehended, directly and unconditionally by Mind at Large... The man who comes back through the Door in the Wall will never be quite the same as the man who went out.
- Aldous Huxley

Plastic Soup

"Except for the small amount that's been incinerated -and it's a very small amount- every bit of plastic ever made still exists... Present in every terrestrial environment, it litters the shores of the most remote islands and chokes marine life... A vast swath of the Pacific, twice the size of Texas, is full of a plastic stew that is entering the food chain."
