time destroys almost everything

i won't comment upon "Chicken Little" directly. In exchange i will present some thoughts that passed my mind while watching it.
"There is no use trying, said Alice, one can't believe impossible things."
"I dare say you haven't had much practice, said the Queen. When i was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes i've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
it's not that i particularly like Lewis Carroll; nor that i particularly like Alice's adventures in Wonderland, but i do think that if people spent half an hour a day believing in impossible things, they'd start believing in their capacity to do something about them. it was Walt Disney who said that "if you can dream it, you can do it". and maybe then, people would start focusing more on essence than on shape. cause they'd gain goals for the creatives in them. for the parts in them which weren't killed by bureacracy and corporatist shits and social duties and all that. Occam said that what can be explained in fewer sentences is pointlessly explained in more sentences.

on the other hand, i'm still under the influence of "Elle est des notres", so...speaking about photos, here is some splendid photography from Edo Kars. and i remembered a little body-copy from a Club Med advert, which said something like cameras are not about photos, but about a means to stop time and retain moments of life, as time goes by. as simple as that sounds, i found some attraction in that. after all, Club Med is "the antidote for civilization"...

also watched during the weekend: Narco and Brice de Nice.

You really think people are capable of letting go of themselves in such a beautiful way, by being creative? Unfortunately, most of the people that I've met so far, when they let go they become hideous, unattractive, completely different (in a bad way) than what they were before.. even I am like that sometimes. what's missing? what are we missing?
