Yes, the spectacle looking back at us . . . to paraphrase Roland Barthes. And, the sweep of western art and philosophy inherent to my mind in the plaque of antlers, pedestaled busts, hung friezes recalling Josef Beuys and his shamanism, Duchamp’s Mutt as well as the continuous processes of consumption and elimination. So rich, in terms of depth, our human art-making, as here, and yet how empty oftimes our response(s) can be when relationship is missing between. – Donna Fleischer

‎”Defending the senses, he never betrayed the mind.”  ~ Susan Sontag on Roland Barthes

Calendar doesn’t say Spring, but the cold rain in the rootstocks and legions of robins, know otherwise. Brought home Jane Reichhold’s “Basho The Complete Haiku” (Kodansha:Tokyo, 2008); and, French philosopher and semiologist, Roland Barthes’s “A Lover’s Discourse, Fragments” (Hill and Wang: NY, 1977, translated from the French by Richard Howard). To set off on a pilgrimage in the dark, cold rain is near to Barthes figuration: “To try to write love is to confront the muck of language: that region of hysteria where language is both too much and too little, excessive and impoverished.” ~ Donna Fleischer
