"There's a truth that runs deeper than experience. Its beyond what we see, or even what we feel. Its an order of truth that separates the profound from the merely clever, and the reality from the perception. We're helpless, usually, in the face of it; and the cost of knowing, like the cost of knowing love, is sometimes greater than any heart would willingly pay. It doesn't always help us to love the world, but it does prevent us from hating the world. And the only way to know that truth is to share it, from heart to heart."
Gregory David Roberts - Shantaram
One of my friends contacted me saying he wanted to use an image of mine for an album cover. It's an image from Berlin. This prompted me to go through my Berlin images and I found this one from a photography exhibition we went to.
I'm also reading Shantaram at the moment and the above quote jumped out at me.
I'm not sure myself what the connection is. Make of it what you will, isn't that what art is after all....
