Love has to be reinvented, 2012-2014
When Venasque told me about diaries of Cocteau, I came across the fragment, which deeply affected me:
“And then I realized that the world of my dreams is equally full of memories as my real life, so it is the real being and also richer, deeper, full of episodes, and more precise in many details. It was difficult to properly locate memories in one or the other world. They were extraordinary, complicated, and have become my second life, twice bigger, and twice longer than my own“.
To love: it is the figure that is not related to declaration of love, to confession, but to non stopping scream of love.
because you have this gun with cold water when I’m turning into someone unlike.
with or without is trivial difference. Is it not the way to communicate with friends?
I know your deepest secret fear. And you know my deepest secret fear,
deepest means love
secret means egoism
Life is the film directed by the universe.
