Ospăț

mm_2013 188_resizeLi se aduseră șapte feluri de mâncare, în cinstea celor șapte zei și a celor șapte frați din Garda Regelui.

Supa era făcută cu ouă și lămâi, ardei verzi erau umpluți cu brânză și ceapă. Erau și plăcinte cu mreană, claponi cu glazură de miere și un pește mustăcios de pe fundul Sângelui Verde, atât de mare că fusese nevoie de patru servitori să-l aducă la masă.

După care urmară o delicioasă tocană de șarpe, bucăți din șapte soiuri de șerpi fierte la foc mic cu ardei iute, portocale sângerii și un strop de venin ca să-i dea gust bun. Tocana era foarte fierbinte. Apoi sosi sucul de fructe, răcoritor la limbă. Ca desert, fiecare oaspete primi câte o țeastă din fire de zahăr. Când sparseră crusta, găsită întrăuntru cremă dulce de lapte și bucăți de prune și de vișine.

(George RR Martin, Dansul Dragonilor)

Bob: It gets a whole lot more complicated when you have kids.

Charlotte: It’s scary.

Bob: The most terrifying day of your life is the day the first one is born.

Charlotte: Nobody ever tells you that.

Bob: Your life, as you know it… is gone. Never to return. But they learn how to walk, and they learn how to talk… and you want to be with them. And they turn out to be the most delightful people you will ever meet in your life.

Charlotte: That’s nice.

“It never seemed important to me that my photos be published. It’s important that I take them. There were periods where I didn’t have money, and I would imagine that someone would come to me and say: “Here is money, you can go do your photography, but you must not show it.” I would have accepted right away. On the other hand, if someone had come to me saying: “Here is money to do your photography, but after your death it must be destroyed”, I would have refused.”
– Joseph Koudelka

Good occasions

It takes a while to value time
I’ll take a break
arrive too late
If I fall behind
it is you I’ll find
In a lovely house
In a lovely town

“Photography isn’t about seeing, it’s about feeling. If I don’t have some kind of feeling for what I’m shooting, how can I expect the person who looks at it to feel anything?”

“Like all photographers, I depend on serendipity, and when you’re photographing children there’s often an abundance of it. I would have an idea of what a photograph would look like and then something would happen – a dog might lumber in and become a critical element. I pray for what might be referred to as the angel of chance.”

– Sally Mann
