As some of you know, I have only rarely submitted any journal entries during the last years. But during the last couple of weeks I have been a bit more active on this site and I did discover some really amazing art that I wanted to share with you. For the future I plan on doing regular features in my journal - maybe once a month if I can manage that. But anyway: Enjoy the art!

Literature by SteffenC-itsjustme

It's closing timeI keep lighting candles all over my apartment
leaving little flames flickering on the floor
on overcrowded book shelves and wooden tables
in the neck of empty wine bottles and
in the windows of heartshaped wooden lanterns
hanging from my ceiling,
but the light never seems to brighten the room
quite like you did
and my record player keeps playing Tom Waits’
Closing Time
I knew a boyI knew a boy
of summer rain and thunder.
Who fell off his bike and scraped his knees
carrying home the groceries.
Who would twirl around on the playground swing
until his feet couldn’t reach the ground
and got lost in the spinning blur over and over again.
Who walked to school with his cat
and played basketball outside instead of eating his lunch.
.
I knew a boy
who fell in love with words and music
and embraced them as an everyday escape,
as the only things that gave meaning to his life.
Who paid more attention to the words the teachers used
than what they were trying to tell him.
Who lived in an empty house full of people and things
and said a painful goodbye to the love he once had for his mother.
.
I knew a boy
who fell in love with his childhood friend
and spent the next two years writing through tears
trying to stitch his heart back together with words.
Who lost his older brother to the world
and his virginity to a girl he didn’t love.
Who broke another girls’ h





"Every word instantly becomes a concept precisely insofar as it is not supposed to serve as a reminder of the unique and entirely individual original experience to which it owes its origin; but rather, a word becomes a concept insofar as it simultaneously has to fit countless more or less similar cases–which means, purely and simply, cases which are never equal and thus altogether unequal. Every concept arises from the equation of unequal things. Just as it is certain that one leaf is never totally the same as another, so it is certain that the concept 'leaf' is formed by arbitrarily discarding these individual differences and by forgetting the distinguishing aspects."
from: Friedrich Nietzsche - "On Truth and Lies in a Nonmoral Sense"

"The most difficult subjects can be explained to the most slow-witted man if he has not formed any idea of them already; but the simplest thing cannot be made clear to the most intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he knows already, without a shadow of doubt, what is laid before him."
from: Leo Tolstoy - "The Kingdom of God is Within You"
