Otis Redding - Try a Little Tenderness
Thousands of the birds have arrived to roost in the village near Gretna, Scotland, with the sheer weight of numbers causing disruption. Power supplies in the village have been affected by the number of birds perching on electricity cables. Starlings are among the most common of garden birds, and can be spotted in the Borders in “murmurations” throughout the Autumn period.
Rubik’s Cube for the Blind by Konstantin Datz
Our good fortune allowed us to feel a sadness that our parents didn’t have time for, and a happiness that I never saw with them. We didn’t know how we learned the stories in our heads, but sometimes they stop running and I can really see Anna’s eyes in 2003. Her ears. Her feet. This is what it looks like when she says, “I love you,” in 2003.
Is This Art? (2010), Maciej Ratajski
“Our heart survives between hammers, just as the tongue between the teeth is still able to praise.”
- Rainer Maria Rilke, Duino Elegy
nee, denkt ze, ik wacht niet
ze danst met lange ranke passen
langzaam en aandachtig
ze houdt haar ogen dicht
en telkens als ze niet meer kan
en bijna, bijna valt,
denkt ze: ik?
ik val niet, ik dans.
Leeds, England, 1954.
