We are the victims of our petty expectations

André Breton once said that if you are not able to imagine a stud riding a tomato you are an idiot. Mostly we are the slaves of our interests and we invariably refuse to see anything or anyone who is not part of or fails to meet our expectations.
Not only that we have become frighteningly petty, but this very attitude has made life become arid, awfully boring and insipid. If you are not able to grasp the
so-called unimportant things like the falling leaf, the noise of a door in the subway, or the fleeing glance of a passerby, then you are a stranger and a slave in your own life.

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.
