write about now

The questions are still there. The answer still on my mind.

Now what? What do you do? What are you going/do you want to do?

I don’t really know, but I always kind of do know. It all comes down to the fact that I want to write, I want to look at things differently (and I want to inspire people to turn their head and see a different angle too) and I want to make (social) commentary on the status quo.

My friend Sterling is writing every day for two weeks, and I want to similarly try to blog something every day. Even if it is just a quote or a picture or something from my little book of thoughts.

I write down lists of ‘things to google’ as life happens and today I finally google a few and want to share the good ones.

Took this picture while having coffee in Antwerp last month, it is of an interview with Weiner that I wanted to remember

DSCF2878

He says “one cannot judge what is art and what is not by the accord of the society one is trying to change…”

I was going to write more, but this has provided more food for thought than I expected and I need to digest a bit.

Maybe I even do MORE than one post a day…
