etteilbuo:

Não é necessário ser eu, e menos ainda ser nós.

A cidade transmite o sentimento de se estar em casa.

Assegurar o sentimento de se estar em casa no exílio.

Estar enraizado na ausência de lugar.

//

Simone Weil, A Gravidade e a Graça

etteilbuo:

April is the cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.
Winter kept us warm, covering
Earth in forgetful snow, feeding
A little life with dried tubers.
Summer surprised us, coming over the Starnbergersee
With a shower of rain; we stopped in the colonnade,
And went on in sunlight, into the Hofgarten,
And drank coffee, and talked for an hour.
Bin gar kine Russin, stamm’ aus Litauen, echt deutsch.
And when we were children, staying at the archduke’s,
My cousin’s, he took me out on a sled,
And I was frightened. He said, Marie,
Marie, hold on tight. And down we went.
In the mountains, there you feel free.
I read, much of the night, and go south in the winter.

What are the roots that clutch, what branches grow
Out of this stony rubbish? Son of man,
You cannot say, or guess, for you know only
A heap of broken images, where the sun beats,
And the dead tree gives no shelter, the cricket no relief,
And the dry stone no sound of water. Only
There is shadow under this red rock,
(Come in under the shadow of this red rock),
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.


               Frisch weht der Wind
               Der Heimat zu,
               Mein Irisch Kind,
               Wo weilest du?

//

bookishrealms asked: My mum is scared because she checked out my search history and there was some really weird stuff there from when I was doing research for my novel. She's doubtful that research for writing should be this suspicious (eg. what would happen if someone disposed of a corpse in space), even for speculative fiction. Could you please assure that this is normal for writers?

neil-gaiman:

This is normal for writers. Novel research will take you down strange alleys and peculiar byways.

This is also normal for people who don’t write. You go places and wonder and wonder on the web because you are curious and because you are alive.
