It’s Tuesday once again! Time to join Frizztext’s A-Z Challenge. Letter this week is Y, and so I chose the theme Yearning. These photos are taken by our featured photographer Joshua Formentera. These photos were on exhibit in Berlin until 15th of this month.
“It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are still alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger for them.”
― George Eliot
“I’ve wandered through the real world, and written myself through the darkness of the streets inside me. I see people walking through the city and wonder where they’ve been, and what the moments of their lives have done to them. If they’re anything like me, their moments have held them up and shot them down.
Sometimes I just survive.
But sometimes I stand on the rooftop of my existence, arms stretched out, begging for more.
That’s when the stories show up in me.
They find me all the time.
They’re made of underdogs and fighters. They’re made of hunger and desire and trying to live decent.
The only trouble is, I don’t know which of those stories comes first.
Maybe they all just merge into one.
We’ll see, I guess.
I’ll let you know when I decide.”
― Markus Zusak, Getting the Girl
“Hunger is the best seasoning.”
― Ken Follett, The Pillars of the Earth
