Coincidencias, rooftops and blue skies

“We know that attention acts as a lightning rod. Merely by concentrating on something one causes endless analogies to collect around it, even penetrate the boundaries of the subject itself: an experience that we call coincidence, serendipity – the terminology is extensive. My experience has been that in these circular travels what is really significant surrounds a central absence, an absence that, paradoxically, is the text being written or to be written.”  Julio Cortázar, Around the Day in Eighty Worlds"

Blues skies and rooftops in Paris and a Cortázar quote I just found in Peter Mendelsund's blog seem like a nice way to try to revive my beloved by almost totally abandoned blog. 

These are winter blues, but I intend to collect some summery ones very soon because.

Hope you're all having a great Sunday.
