“To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain and play with it.” — Charlie Chaplin (quoted in Charlene Smith’s Committed to Me, 2009).
“One thing has not changed, however. Psychoanalytic theories radiate in different directions from a common, core commitment to a sustained, collaborative inquiry into the complex inter textures of human experience, established in the complex interplay between past and present, actuality and fantasy, self and other, internal and external, conscious and unconscious, (waking and sleeping, thinking and feeling). — Mitchell and Black
Quite by chance, the two quotes I selected for today are about playing. I like the idea of interplay between thought and feeling, conscious and unconscious, self and other, internal and external, actuality and fantasy. The thoughts radiate in circles from these points.
Still on playing, I’ve started a flickr wall on the notice-board in my new office. The first eight pics are up and they are a great reminder of what I love about photography — the play of light.
I’ll post a pic soon.
Happy Wednesday now, y’all (and happy birthday to my big sister!)
