Spread #88- Shelf Life March 31, 2010Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
There is life on my shelves. They are loaded with stories. And the things on my shelves, if they could talk, they would tell you plenty about themselves. Yes, they would probably tell you where they come from, how they found themselves on my shelves, that kind of thing, and may be even how happy they are, yes they would. Most of all they will tell you what they don’t like. That they do not like to be ignored, or not seen, or be given a one-word name. They would also claim that they are not what most people think of them. That they are not still life, they are not inanimate subject matters. At what time in our life do we start naming to avoid the ‘work’ of seeing? How convenient is that? I see my shelves, my shelves are full of life. What’s on your shelves? Can you see?
