Ghoulish?

What is that? So morbid and disgusting that you can hardly look at it. But yet so possessive to the light of it that it shines? And through all the awkwardness of viewing it, you can easily sense a huge emotion in just two words: “My Precious”. Can in really be that ghoulish?

Orange Tree

A bit sad, filled with desire and sorrow, different reality for sure………

Song of the Barren Orange Tree

Woodcutter.
Cut my shadow from me.
Free me from the torment
of seeing myself without fruit.
Why was I born among mirrors?

The day walks in circles around me,
and the night copies me
in all its stars.

I want to live without seeing myself,
and I will dream that ants
and thistleburrs are my
leaves and my birds.

Woodcutter.
Cut my shadow from me.
Free me from the torment
of seeing myself without fruit.

CANCIÓN DEL NARANJO SECO – CANCIONES PARA TERMINAR (Canciones 1921-1924)
(A Carmen Morales)

Leñador.
Córtame la sombra.
Líbrame del suplicio
de verme sin toronjas.

¿Por qué nací entre espejos?
El día me da vueltas.
Y la noche me copia
en todas sus estrellas.

Quiero vivir sin verme.
Y hormigas y vilanos,
soñaré que son mis
hojas y mis pájaros.

Leñador.
Córtame la sombra.
Líbrame del suplicio
de verme sin toronjas.

Salvador Dali

Nothing can be more surreal than the Art, and the strongest association is definitely famous Salvador Dali and his painting “The Persistence of Memory“. When defining I like the explanation of oddly dreamlike qualities. It is the real question to ask ourselves:

What is really (sur)real?

What is time?

The Persistence of Memory (Catalan: La persistència de la memòria) is a 1931 painting by artist Salvador Dalí, and is one of his most recognizable works. First shown at the Julien Levy Gallery in 1932, since 1934 the painting has been in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City, which received it from an anonymous donor. It is widely recognized and frequently referenced in popular culture,[1] and sometimes referred to by more descriptive (though incorrect) titles, such as ‘Melting Clocks’, ‘The Soft Watches’, or ‘The Melting Watches’.[by whom?]
