401 (who?)
be a body by NikolasBrummer be a body by NikolasBrummer
    I close my eyes until I see
    I don't need hands to touch me
    be a body

    I lean on walls until I stand
    I touch my face with my hand
    be a body

sometimes a melody can hold your reality, your world ... this one holds mine.

On September 14th I shared this picture and wrote on Facebook:

I'm just totally impressed by another photo by Nikolas Brummer, and I tend to call it one of the best portraits ever made not just by him, but by any artist in the world. I can imagine it on the cover of every magazine, every CD, digital music release and on a billboard for a movie release - but he made so many great portraits of himself and others by now that I won't do him justice to rave about this single one.

This is another place, and because of artists like you I'm glad to be still here on deviantART. I don't know the song, but I try to imagine it:

"I close my eyes until I see
I don't need hands to touch me
be a body

I lean on walls until I stand
I touch my face with my hand
be a body"

Now I listen to it.

And that's why...

Ich habe nachgedacht über so vieles von dem, worüber wir schon geredet haben, und ich frage mich gerade, was davon ich hier schreiben kann. Aber du bist mutig mit deinen Fotos, mit Bildern wie diesem, und es wäre feige, mit Worten zurück zu stehen. Be a body... - vielleicht ist es ja nicht mehr, und vielleicht ist es auch nicht weniger. Etwas sein, das wirkliches Wissen hat - wirkliches Wissen; nichts Antrainiertes, nichts Erkauftes. Ich glaube, wir dürfen keine Zeit verlieren.

There's a world inside each and everyone of us, and we hold the keys to a mystery within our biological systems. These keys are made to open doors, secret portals that are leading into a lot of worlds: Strange, beautiful, dangerous, but always adventurous worlds.

Du weißt, wo ich das her habe. Und du weißt auch, warum ich gerade jetzt daran denke. Wir haben alle das gleiche Blut.
