The Arrow And The Song

Yesterday, while being at my girlfriends place, i found a poem in a relatively old book of hers.

among others, i found this one somehow appealing to me.

I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.

I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For who has sight so keen and strong,
That it can follow the flight of song?

Long, long afterward, in an oak
I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend

Picture related to friendship.
Otherwise unrelated, but i like it :)

Sadness put to pictures

elationistic aesthetics, expressionism, monochromatism, vanitas, futurism, cubism, contrapposto, pastiche, repoussoir, and gradients.

I apology for the rare blogging at the time, i having some exams at the time.
- you should be able to guess at least one. :)
Even though it's a relatively focused topic at the time, I would like to pay off a thought to something that haunts me almost everyday; the palestinian people in gaza, and the terrible stuff they undergo everyday. Along with my thoughts i'll send some chosen pictures which i think is pretty good and fitting. Link to the source in  under the first pictures, worth seeing.

basically I feel helpless. I hope the world will 'wake up', soon enough.

"Mankind must put an end to war or war will put an end to mankind."
John F. Kennedy Speech to UN General Assembly, Sept. 25, 1961 35th president of US 1961-1963 (1917 - 1963)

The next 4 pictures here are related to the us war in general. I included these even though they differ from those from gaza, as they  are thought-provoking in another way. I like the first picture of Bush, as i think that you can spot something in his face that expresses just a little bit of sorrow and compassion. Maybe this is a proof that even him, who's standing there trying to hold his tough president-facade with the little american flag, also sometimes can be overwhelmed of the terrifying dread of war.
