As if …

“As if you could pick in love, as if it were not a lightning bolt that splits your bones and leaves you staked out in the middle of the courtyard. (…) You don’t pick out the rain that soaks you to the skin when you come out of a concert.”
Julio Cortázar

Art by Vincent Willem Van Gogh.

Engleza de joi/ Veil

Veil = a piece of fine material worn by women to protect or conceal the face.

“Tell the truth through whichever veil comes to hand — but tell it. Resign yourself to the lifelong sadness that comes from never ­being satisfied.” – from Zadie Smith‘s 10 Rules of Writing
