Ground From Above - Terrão de Cima by Renato Stockler
"A ‘terrão’ (earthen field) is an oasis in the urban landscape. The reddish tone of a soccer field turns into a stage for resistance of popular soccer. These fields are increasingly rare to be seen because of property speculation and land occupation, and they standing as a spirit of resilience." - Renato Stockler
An Italian To Have and Have Not (Howard Hawks, USA, 1944). Art by Luigi Martinati. Lauren Bacall, who left us last week after an astonishing 70 years
Truly classic beauty. RIP Lauren Bacall, hope you’re slinging sass at Bogie in that speak easy in the sky
Gimcrack religions were big business.
Mankind, ignorant of the truths that lie within every human being, looked outward - pushed ever outward. What mankind hoped to learn in its outward push was who was actually in charge of all creation, and what all creation was all about.
Mankind flung its advance agents ever outward, ever outward. Eventually, it flung them out into space, into the colorless, tasteless, weightless sea of outwardness without end.
It flung them like stones.
These unhappy agents found what had already been found in abundance on Earth - a nightmare of meaninglessness without end. The bounties of space, of infinite outwardness, were three: empty heroics, low comedy, and pointless death.
Outwardness lost, at last, its imagined attractions.
Only inwardness remained to be explored."
- Kurt Vonnegut, The Sirens of Titan
easily one of the best first pages of a book I’ve ever read.
