Susan Sontag

Found this somewhere in BrainPickings, long time ago.

These are articles about my personal motivations behind the project and its resulting structure, which is (like everything else) open to change.

After visiting Vondelpark in Amsterdam, my friend and me had a very serious cold attack, so we started walking out from that park. We went into the first the coffee shop we found, the Dolphins coffee shop, one I hardly recommend by the way. My whole trip was a big encounter with artists, true artists, not talkers or sellers but doers, people who cannot stop making. That day wasn’t the exception.
I rarely stop myself from talking to someone who I think is extremely interesting… this time I saw a guy drawing on a sketchbook and we ended up spending the whole day talking at the Dolphins shop, one of the many places he did with his own and bare hands. I was shocked by his transparency and I wrote many of the simple and fascinating things he said, but I can truly associate his life with this documentary. At a certain point, he mentioned that there was absolutely nothing he could do to stop making things, anything… It went truly well for him, but he is aware that it can be both a blessing and a curse. I think there is nothing more beautiful than simple people doing what they love.

Bringing back a 2009 project. The first time I got inspired by Brock Davis was through the Broccoli house, and it’s impossible not to be inspired by him. I post this because I think everybody has more than one spark of creativity everyday.

Documentation is fantastic, it encourages personal projects of transformation.

Begin anywhere.

It is the world that made you small.  Thanks to Lara Mickoki por tripear conmigo.

Really proud to have a young talented writer as a friend : )

Me gusta la gente universal, sin fronteras, ni límites, con casas en lugares pero lugares con alas, con hogares también en personas, sin exageraciones de nacionalismos, con sueños más allá de kilómetros, con la capacidad de tener ojos en los opuestos, con curiosidad tremenda de otros. Me gusta la gente que pertenece a nada ni a nadie, porque pertenecen a ellos mismos, al mundo o quizá a otra planeta, y gota a gota se derraman como individuos, o en seres ajenos. Me gustan aquellos sin distancias por distinciones, porque acá o allá, somos los mismos.
