Weekly Photo Challenge: Endurance


“If something burns your soul with purpose and desire, it’s your duty to be reduced to ashes by it. Any other form of existence will be yet another dull book in the library of life.”
― Charles Bukowski

  1. I have to correspond with the same exclamation: BRILLIANT! Unlike me, you’ve come up with your OWN music. The voice has changed since …. India 😀 (me likey it a lot)

    • Thanks Paula. I’m glad that you listened to the song too. My memory might be playing tricks on me, but I think that this recording was actually done before I went to India (I’ll have to double-check it). I also have a semi-studio version that I’ll post later sometime (it’s on the YouTube account already, but I haven’t posted it in the blog yet).

    • Thanks for the compliment Ben. I checked out your post and must say that both your voice and piano skills are excellent! You’re a fan of Bukowski too. I like your style.

      • …I don’t know Bukowski very well at all, though, (not by lack of interest; it is just that I rarely read since a couple of years) but when I randomly stumble upon his words, it clicks with me most of the times…

        • I sat down one summer, drank wine and read all of his stuff: poems, novels, short stories – everything that the local library could get (they even had to order stuff from other libraries to meet my demand).

  2. That is a delightful composite photo. It sure looks like an endurance – in a place nobody wants to experience. It’s really a spellbinding photo which I can keep looking at time and time again. And Bukowski’s quote goes right to the core of the creative endeavour.

    • Definitely an endurance, but still better than being “yet another dull book in the library of life” like Bukowski so masterfully wrote it. Thanks for the great feedback Otto, “a spellbinding photo”, I like that.

  3. Wow, this is a great image. I’m guessing it’s you? It’s really convincing – looks as if it’s a still taken from a video or something.
