Citizen of the Planet

Ba. 22.
Brasilia. London. Rome.

"There is no difference in what we're doing in here that doesn't show up as bigger symptoms out there."

...that there should be no bottom or top at all.

I like films and independent cinemas.
I like the theater and being backstage.
I like film sets.
I like books, bookshops, & libraries.
I like writing.
I like long walks around the city.

One day, I will be an established filmmaker.

"Love should be unaddressed. Love need not be oriented towards the other. Love oriented towards the other is not true love, love as relationship is not true love. Love as a state of being is true love. One can love a woman, one can love a man, one can love one’s children, one can love one’s parents, one can love roses, one can love other flowers, one can love a thousand and one things — but these are all relationships. Learn how to be love! So it is not a question of to whom your love is addressed, it is simply a question of your being loving. Sitting alone, still love goes on flowing." - Osho

"You have to have a certain detachment in order to see beauty for yourself rather than something that has been put in quotation marks to be understood as “beauty.” Think about Dutch painting, where sunlight is falling on a basin of water and a woman is standing there in the clothes that she would wear when she wakes up in the morning—that beauty is a casual glimpse of something very ordinary. Or a painting like Rembrandt’s Carcass of Beef, where a simple piece of meat caught his eye because there was something mysterious about it. You also get that in Edward Hopper: Look at the sunlight! or Look at the human being! These are instances of genius. Cultures cherish artists because they are people who can say, Look at that. And it’s not Versailles. It’s a brick wall with a ray of sunlight falling on it."

"Who the fuck cares where you went to school or where you work? The question is: Is your everyday experience good, healthy, beautiful? Because I have to tell you, while it might be cool to work for a company like Google, Apple, or The New Yorker, if your job is stupid, stressful and your boss is an asshole, there is nothing good or prestigious about that. While it might seem right to go to a school like Berkeley, if classes are overcrowded and students are nervous, anxious, religious zealots from Orange County, are you sure you want to go there? What’s good about that? To believe in prestige is to privilege abstract, collective impression over palpable, daily experience. To which I say: fuck prestige. Do what serves your everyday vitality."

I need life at a slower pace. I need to feel the weight of every step and the size of every breath. I need to trace the origins of my thoughts and the journeys they each make. I need to feel the light through my skin and into my veins. I need to realise the coarseness of the pavement and harshness of concrete sidewalks. My feet on the ground and the ground against my feet. I need to feel the pull of gravity to realise the grandeur of all things. And the littleness of me. i need time to recognise patterns and trace the outlines. So that I can map my way around the world in days. Individual days and not this haze. Blur. The blur. Blurbanization. Glocalization. I am chewed up and spat out like the chew off of sugar cane.

Isn’t everything we do in life a way to be loved a little more?

"His grandmother and I are raising him. I worry about putting him into the public school system. I was a teacher for many years. I’ve seen so much confidence destroyed by the standardized system. Every human is born with natural curiosity. I’ve never seen a child who wasn’t inspired. But once you force someone to do anything, the inspired person is killed. I dropped out of school myself in 7th grade. So I know. I taught a GED course for years, so I’ve seen the end results over and over. I’ve seen so many kids who have complexes and insecurities because they were forced to do something they weren’t ready to do, and then they were blamed when they weren’t able to do it. What we call ‘education’ today is not organic. You can’t take something as complex as the human mind, compartmentalize it, and regiment its development so strictly."
