“But what a funny thing it is to travel like that, leaving little fragments of one’s heart more or less everywhere.”
– Simone de Beauvoir, from a letter to Jean-Paul Sarte, 16 March, 1947
Art – Tamara de Lempicka painting a portrait of her first husband Tadeusz de Lempicki, 1928
Grasp = a firm hold or grip.
“The body is not a thing, it is a situation: it is our grasp on the world and our sketch of our project.”
― Simone de Beauvoir
My “situation” has a penchant for grasping more and more of the world in different and divergent sporting circumstances; cycling, skating, skiing… Sketching over one’s limits melts the stresses of fitting an imperfect representation of perfect living.
