Favorite passage from anthropologist, nature writer Loren Eiseley's book The Immense Journey.
"Standing quietly in the water, feeling the sand shifting away under my toes, I lay back in the floating position that left my face to the sky, and shoved off."


Albert Camus Note Books 1935-1942
"Seek contacts. All contacts. If I want to write about men, how can I cut myself off from the countryside.
If the sky or light attract me, shall I forget the eyes or voices of those I love?
Each time I am given the elements of a friendship, the fragments of an emotion, never the emotion or the friendship itself."


Zeng Xiao Feng, Artist - Kunming, China


"The tendencies of the spirit - lessness, and commercialization in the contemporary culture make the art works increasingly monotonous, and far away from the soul.

Therefore most of them look pedestrian and insipid. The real art is just like a mysterious flash of light, which passes in the twinkling of an eye."
