One Head, Two Necks and Three Hands

reject your reality and substitute my own. -Adam Savage

Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.
-Lao Tzu

Surrealism had a great effect on me because then I realised that the imagery in my mind wasn't insanity. Surrealism to me is reality.
-John Lennon

Reality is a sliding door. -R. Waldo Emerson

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one. -Albert Einstein


  1. Life's evening will take its character from the day that preceded it.~Phillip Nicolas Shuttleworth(1782-1842)

  4. oh, wow - another beautiful and thought-provoking post - think i just need to come over with a glass of wine and browse a while!!! have a wonderful day!

  5. Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision. Salvador Dali.

    I love that picture. So much is determined before we are born.

  6. Love the Emerson quote - so that's where the movie title came from?

  7. it might be an illusion but it still hurts if i stub my toe...
