“Benim evimde bir gün kör olacaksın. Benim gibi. Bir köşede oturuyor olacaksın. Boşlukta kaybolmuş küçük bir leke.
Karanlıkta kalacaksın, sonsuza dek. Benim gibi, bir gün.”

Samuel Beckett
Görsel : Alphonse Mucha 1919 - Alphonse Mucha, world renowned for his Art Nouveau graphics, used photographs of models for much of his reference material.
But sometimes the photographs themselves were beautiful and had that Mucha look about them—such as
this inspirational 1919 image he used as a study for a bank note design.

The Strahov Library. Prague, Czech Republic. 17th/18th century.

It was hard to find this place and I had to pay for a permission to take these photos, but it was so worth it! I mean, damn, look at it! That’s every booklovers dream!

Rally for Justice for Trayvon Martin, Detroit, MI.

The lady with the yellow flower in her hair is Mertila Jones, the grandmother of Aiyana Jones. She was sleeping on her couch with Aiyana when the police burst into her home and shot the sleeping ten-year old Aiyana to death. 

 Mertila Jones spoke at the rally. Also speaking was Mike Hamlin, founding member of the the League of Revolutionary Black Workers (this was back in the sixties) and  co-author of Detroit: I Do Mind Dying. Faith and community leaders also spoke, as did a former Black Panther and and ISO comrade.

During the meeting, others picketed outside the building. Afterwards, everyone marched through downtown.
