Reinassance


There's something in every atheist, itching to believe, and something in every believer, itching to doubt. ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic's Notebook, 1966

A religion without the element of mystery would not be a religion at all. ~Edwin Lewis

God made so many different kinds of people. Why would he allow only one way to serve him? ~Martin Buber

All religions must be tolerated... for... every man must get to heaven his own way. ~Frederick the Great

This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness. ~Dalai Lama

i was just marveling at these photos earlier tonight over on foto decadent and thought of you, yoli! that first pic in the dark hood is my fave... and something about the third to last (her eyes) and the light and that gorgeous elizabethan ruff takes my breath away.

the quotes are perfect.

Wonderful quotes, as always. And I love the photos. In my next life I intend to have thick, flowing, wavy Titian hair. And lots of freckles.

I want it all. The clothes, the chairs..even the red hair.

If there is such a thing as a perfect post... this is it!

Much love my beautiful sister and a resounding Amen to your thoughts,

Little do you know that the post on my blog today was inspired by your blog. I read a lot of Matt's blog today and just felt it was time. I have not read Camus since college. Maybe it is time...thank you for the beautiful quote and reminder. Thank you for the inspiration to finally speak what is in my heart.

Wow! I think the last one is the best. And I love the quote from the Dalai Lama. I just watched the fabulous film Kundun the other night, have you seen it?

Renaissance is a period I love to study and read about, so conflicted and intriguing and at the same time so rich and creative. French Henri III is one of the personage I love most even though he was so badly understood.

I love your new look Yoli.
I miss you...

Did you see The Fountain, a film by Daronovsky (sp?)?

robinbird said...

wow her hair..i want her hair. i prefer seeing her as a true to life rather than as a model. it just ruins the atmosphere to know it is all hot lights and posing. you blog leaves it all mystery and darkness. the perfect stage for this sort of thing. now the quotes...each one a perfect idea to reflect upon for a day..but then at the end...of course it is all so simple. kindness. yes.

every quote and the one on womanhood are all so inspiring, truly truly inspiring!

Yoli, Nice blog you have. I love the dark background in all the images. The curly hair, the flowy dresses, & the unique layout of these photographs are eye catching.
I also like the way you include quotes. I truly believe in the last quote by Dalai Lama

regards, anusha
