A film is – or should be – more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what’s behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.
"Dr. King’s policy was that non-violence would achieve the gains for black people in the United States. His major assumption was that if you are non-violent, if you suffer, your opponent will see your suffering and will be moved to change his heart. That’s very good.
He only made one fallacious assumption: In order for non-violence to work, your opponent must have a conscience. The United States has none.” [x]
We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next, to find ourselves
A story should have a beginning, a middle and an end… but not necessarily in that order.
#WeCanTakeTheLongWayHome A few weeks ago we took a road-trip all around southern California - we visited lots of places along the ocean, we wandered through long stretches of hot desert, we went exploring in Sequoia, and eventually, after 10 days, circled back home to Los Angeles. All in all the three of us kept quiet busy on the road, Erica took over 160 photographs with her 120 medium format camera, Xander collected over 30 different plants that he pressed, and I recorded just shy of 4 hours of footage… plus Erica and I did a lot of writing on top of everything else. It was a much needed get away for all of us. - - We posted a handful of updates from the road here http://kck.st/1qMVMaX
"Through a Glass, Darkly" - General George S. Patton, Jr.
Through the travail of the ages,
Midst the pomp and toil of war,
I have fought and strove and perished
Countless times upon this star.
In the form of many people
In all panoplies of time
Have I seen the luring vision
Of the Victory Maid, sublime.
