Ok so this is GARBAGE WORLD 5 (lite)! The advert gives a good sense of some of GW's past themes: there sits, among neon confetti, a hoagie full of processed meat and cheese, partially wrapped in tin foil. I attended Garbage World 2 or maybe 3 in Chicago, where the thing was born…

LEIMAYblog: Elizabeth McAuliffe. On Becoming Soft

LEIMAYblog: Andrea Jones: On Becoming Communicative

Words, what are they? One tear will say more than all of them. – A. W. Schlegel

It is a difficult task… using words. Feelings, ideas, emotions are fleeting. Once you open your mouth to express them, they have already gone. What to do then? Keep your mouth shut tightly? Hold on as long as you can to the essence, the fragrance of the feeling before it disappears into the atmosphere like a wisp of smoke?

 The New York City Subway System
