inside my brain

I worked for 5 years as the International Exec of the company which imports and distributes fine art prints in my country from all over the world. We never sold 1 unit of this one in all that time. For me? The best image I´ve ever come across with. The most accurate picture of what happens inside my brain. "There is an old man between a million books covered with dust trying to find answers and making connections" I used to say that when I was a girl... and when I saw the print I said: Just like him! That is me! Well... my insides...

 

So I framed it and now it´s part of my living room. Yes, I don´t hang walldecor. The tulip also has to do with me, and so the furniture in black. I painted it myself.

 

Well, now you know some little more about me. =)

"I cannot think it unlikely that there is such a total book on some shelf in the universe. I pray to the unknown gods that some man -- even a single man, tens of centuries ago -- has perused and read this book. If the honor and wisdom and joy of such a reading are not to be my own, then let them be for others. Let heaven exist, though my own place may be in hell. Let me be tortured and battered and annihilated, but let there be one instant, one creature, wherein thy enormous Library may find its justification." Borges, "The Library of Babel"
