On the set of Stalker; dir. by Andrei Tarkovsky in 1979

sqq. *

I am a museum full of art,

Someone told me the other day that he felt bad for single people because they are lonely all the time. I told him that's not true I'm single and I don't feel lonely. I take myself out to eat, I buy myself clothes. I have great times by myself. Once you know how to take care of yourself company becomes an option and not a necessity.

— Carl Jung

Remembering is only a new form of suffering.

— Charles Baudelaire


We called it Voight Kampff for short.

Memory has always been fundamental for me. In fact, remembering what I had forgotten is the way most of the poems get started. At the best times, something wakens, there's an almost physical quickening.
