mirror


Random quote of the day:

“An ordinary mirror is silvered at the back but the window of the night train has darkness behind glass. My face and the faces of other travelers were now mirrored on this darkness in a succession of stillnesses. Consider this, said the darkness: any motion at any speed is a succession of stillnesses; any section through an action will show just such a plane of stillness as this dark window in which your seeking face is mirrored. And in each plane of stillness is the moment of clarity that makes you responsible for what you do.”

—Russell Hoban, The Medusa Frequency

Random quote of the day:

“I walked away from the mirror.
it was morning, it was afternoon, it was night

nothing changed
it was locked in place.
something flashed, something broke, something
remained.

I walked down the stairway and
into it.”

—Charles Bukowski, “Cut While Shaving”
