Words: Maybe it’s all exactly the same thing. 

‘’ Some people come, some people go. Some come to teach you how to love, others to teach you how to let go… Some things burn to ashes, before they have even begun, others are built, day by day, slowly and patiently. It’s beautiful… this ever revolving push and pull of life, isn’t it? This not knowing, which is which? Maybe the destruction is a construction… and the things we think we are building, slowly, are the ones that are burning after all. Maybe it’s all exactly the same thing.  ‘’ 

  • From my notes.

Collateral Beauty….

To always remember:

” Just be sure to notice the collateral beauty. It’s the profiling connection to everything. “

” [Love] I’m in all of it. I’m the darkness and the light, I’m the sunshine and the storm. Yes, you’re right, I’m the sunshine and the storm. I’m the reason for everything.”

” [Love] I’m the fabric of life. I’m within you. I’m within everything.

Do we know what we live for?

Sometimes, I look around and think we are all completely oblivious to everything that really matters. Maybe it’s the only way…… maybe we have to be blinded, so we can be part of the ‘system’. But then again, maybe we could all be a little better. Maybe if we understood that life is frail, that nothing matters except love, and that only the soul is important, then… maybe things would be different. I guess I’ll always be a hopeful dreamer.

Art: Wandering through the Louvre Abu Dhabi

One the things that I profoundly adored in this new museum was the underlying idea which sustains it. It aims to be an analysis of human universality, showcasing in each room, specific stages of human development in history. What is beautiful about it is that it doesn’t segregate by cultures or traditions, but instead has joined together the whole world in one single room: combining for example the portrayal of motherhood, side by side, in China, Egypt and Europe.

I will be posting specific analysis of each area and some of its main masterpieces, but for the meantime, here are some pictures of the overall exhibition spaces.
