The Edge of Running Water

wet

We stood and looked at each other. Drops of water fell from her body like fragments of light, and for an instant it seemed to me that there had been nothing whatever prior to this moment, that we had swum out of some infinite reservoir of being until we were stranded on the shore of the world.

— William Sloane, The Edge of Running Water

Bowie

The most interesting thing for an artist is to pick through the debris of a culture, to look at what’s been forgotten or not really taken seriously. Once something is categorized and accepted, it becomes part of the tyranny of the mainstream, and it loses its potency.
