Ed van der Elsken // "Who am I to spout about life, love, happiness? About whether all’s right with the world, or whether it’s just a vale of tears... I think it’s unbelievable, fabulous, this life of ours…everything, the birds and the bees, the deer and the antelope, the spacious skies, the foggy dew, the rockabye babies… My wife’s embrace, a landing on the moon, space, time, eternity. I don’t understand one damn thing about any of it, except that it’s enough to keep me in a constant delirium of delight, surprise, enthusiasm, despair, enough to keep me roaming, stumbling, faltering, cursing, adoring, hating the destruction, the violence in myself and others."
