a misunderstanding?Posted: 09 Jul 2012
“What if everything in the world were a misunderstanding, what if laughter were really tears?”
-Soren Kierkegaard Either/Or: A Fragment of Life
I took this picture on July 12, 2007 and put it on my old blog coupled with the above quote. I was 23, had just graduated from Binghamton University, was generally confused about the world, and was reading a lot of Kierkegaard. The blue sky and gentle humming of early July always reminds me of that summer when, paradoxically, hope and cynicism blew in equally strong. Past thoughts can have a certain poetic power.
