Arranging my books, I've come to realise how often great, arresting images have compelled me to buy art books or to just stop and ponder. Which is both ordinary, because I do love art, and strange, because paradoxically, I don't think of myself as a person who thinks visually: if I met you and turned around, I doubt I would be able to say what you were wearing. So here's to the work of artists that have intrigued me, including Nan Goldin. (Image from Postmedia.net - shows very well the level of intimacy that Goldin can achieve.)
and i do agree that meeting up with people is more important but it all feels so surreal to me. like i'm not leaving actually. did you feel like that too?
