“Real isn't how you are made,' said the Skin Horse. 'It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.'

'Does it hurt?' asked the Rabbit. 

'Sometimes,' said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. 'When you are Real you don't mind being hurt.' 

'Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,' he asked, 'or bit by bit?' 

'It doesn't happen all at once,' said the Skin Horse. 'You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand.”

The street becomes more and more unbearable. I'm so bewildered and offended by the brutality and narrowmindedness of these people who laugh at me and my sunflower that, surrounded by all these pedestrians, I see no other solution than to tear the yellow sunflower head to pieces and run away.” ― Klaus Kinski, Kinski Uncut

Heading out to Western Mass this weekend for artful adventures to the Clark Museum in the Village Beautiful and hopefully another stop by Mass MoCA. There is such an abundance of goodness in the Berkshires!

Our life is a faint tracing on the surface of mystery, like the idle, curved tunnels of leaf miners on the face of a leaf. We must somehow take a wider view, look at the whole landscape, really see it..."
