“The moon in all her immaculate purity hung in the sky, laughing at this world of dust. She congratulated me for my carefully considered maneuvers and invited me to share in her eternal solitude.” — Shan Sa, Empress

"If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast."
"We ate well and cheaply and drank well and cheaply and slept well and warm together and loved each other."
"But Paris was a very old city and we were young and nothing was simple there, not even poverty, nor sudden money, nor the moonlight, nor right and wrong nor the breathing of someone who lay beside you in the moonlight."
“When spring came, even the false spring, there were no problems except where to be happiest. The only thing that could spoil a day was people and if you could keep from making engagements, each day had no limits. People were always the limiters of happiness except for the very few that were as good as spring itself.”

No one saves us but ourselves, no one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path…


~Buddha

Artemis:  It is often quoted as a verse from the Dhammapada.  

It’s said to be a liberal translation of verse 165:   By oneself indeed is evil done and by oneself is one defiled; by oneself is evil not done and by oneself is one purified. Purity and impurity depend entirely on oneself; no one can purify another.

No one saves us but ourselves, no one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path…

Tristan & Isolde Brooch
Salvador Dali 

Description from 1stdibs:  ”The romantic opera Tristan & Isolde was Salvador Dali’s favorite opera. It inspired him to design this brooch of the two dreamy lovers who are attempting a kiss only to be separated by a golden goblet of garnet and diamonds. Dali designed the brooch in 1953. At that time Dali commissioned Carlos Alemany to fabricate his jewelry designs. Their relationship continued until Alemany died at which time Dali commissioned Henryk Kaston, a violin bow maker and jeweler, to fabricate his jewelry designs. Their relationship continued until Dali’s death in 1989. This brooch dates from the Kaston period, circa 1980’s.
The brooch shows the two figures in profile, separated by a chalice of a triangular buff brushed garnet and 33 full cut diamonds weighing approximately one carat. Signed on the back “Tristan and Isolde 18K HK After Dali” Dali (1904-1989) wrote of this brooch :"The heads are juxtaposed to form a goblet, which, in turn, suggests the effluence of love possible between man and woman." 1stdibs.com
