My Inspiration for November 2020

30 Nov

This has been such a wonderful November in terms of inspiration! I’ve been obsessed with Brigitte Bardot and reading Simone de Beauvoir’s essay “Brigitte Bardot and the Lolita Syndrome” (1959) really fueled this obsession and so did the film La Verité (1960) with the handsome Sami Frey. I enjoyed listening to Francoise Hardy and gazing at beautiful cityscapes of Camille Pissarro with tiny figures of strollers and carriages, Bonnard’s paintings of buildings on the other side of the street, Preciosionist paintings by Charles Demuth and Charles Sheeler, then my imagination took me on a little revival of my love for the Manic Street Preachers and especially their song “Little Baby Nothing” which was, coincidentally, released on 16th November 1992.

Being tolerant does not mean that I share another one’s belief. But it does mean that I acknowledge another one’s right to believe, and obey, his own conscience.

(Viktor Frankl)

“It was November – the month of crimson sunsets, parting birds, deep, sad hymns of the sea, passionate wind-songs in the pines.”

(L.M.Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables)
