Sissy Fuss



I (properly) started reading The Myth of Sisyphus and Other Essays on the subway this morning, now that I can lend the attention it deserves. This week, on Dimpoe's spectacularly perceptive blog Raccolta, she remarks on the felicitousness of the perfect book-mood alignment after having revisited The Picture of Dorian Gray. Well, I echo her keenness for these moments, and I wonder if it has anything to do with the part of the brain that allows one to pick up a horoscope and reconfigure neural connections to make their cosmic forecast seem uncannily pertinent as well :)

In struggling to pinpoint my next big move of 2011 I always revert to the fundamental topics Camus discusses in this book. Not the suicide part (not to worry, guys!) so much as considering one's vocation(s) and "the possibility of life lived with dignity and authenticity". I'm interested in reading more on his defense as to why an artist may indulge in his/her life in terms of his/her reasons for living and for creating.



I most probably posted this video somewhere in the 'kives already,
but like the cowbell, there's no such thing as too much Kate Bush.
In keeping with the theme above, it was just too apropos!

About Me

My photo
I'm an LA transplant now living in Brooklyn. I develop film projects by day, write at night, and have a dangerous predilection for vintage Robinson Golluber scarves- this blog serves as a tiny window to everything else I do when I'm not satisfying those first three passions. I'm trying to blog more and tweet less @annabelleqv. What about you?
