It must be done with mirrors
my head that rests on nothing in mid-air.
Where is my body
where oh where?
I can see the stones
hidden in the hands.
O bring back my body to me, to me,
O miracle bring it back
before the mirrors break.
It Must Be Done With Mirrors by Maya Deren, March 1942
Still from Martina Kudlácek’s documentary In the Mirror of Maya Deren.(via beatnikwitchery)
In the old days, if someone had a secret they didn’t want to share … you know what they did? They went up a mountain, found a tree, carved a hole in it, and whispered the secret into the hole. Then they covered it with mud. And leave the secret there forever.— — Chow Mo-wan, “In the Mood for Love,” directed by Wong Kar-wai (via thesecretoftehanu)
