Left Behind in a Memory

The difference between false memories and true ones is the same as for jewels: it is always the false ones that look the most real, the most brilliant.” ~Salvador Dali (source)

Memories are often a jump off point for creating a poem, lyric, or other piece of art. They can be enhanced, altered, enlarged, and explored. In fact, they are often only a representation of what we wish could be true. You might wonder why, I spend so much time rearranging and recreating a simple photograph. Just as we each have our own perception of the world, shaped by the past, present, and physiology. This is how I like to remind myself that this is my unique view of the world. Not reality, but my reality. ~ Bill Hendricks (Shadowmason)

When Art Ceases to Be Art

No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist.” ~ Oscar Wilde (source)

The fact of the matter is… The truth lies between the particles. We are all looking through a window layered with dust and grime.
