a meditation on two events per day:

“Deleuze and Guattari, following Bergson, suggest that the virtual is the mode of reality implicated in the emergence of new potentials. In other words, its reality is the reality of change: the event” (Massumi, Sensing the Virtual, Building the Insensible)

The actual smell of rain comes from plants. When plants are in drought they produce oils in replacement for waters. When the time comes and it finally starts raining the plants get their needed water and they release these oils in the air and the smell of that oil is what we call smell of rain

opens Apr 17, 6-8p:“Day by Day, Good Day” Peter DreherKoenig & Clinton Gallery, 459 W19th St., NYCa historical exhibition presenting paintings from 1974-2012. Dreher began his series Tag um Tag Guter Tag (Day by Day, Good Day) after painting his first glass in 1972. Dreher continued rendering a single empty water glass repeatedly, by day and by night, and has continued doing so over the course of several decades. The title of the series is linked to a Zen Buddhist maxim that espouses the equanimity of all things and objective perception of the world. Schooled as a figurative painter, the artist has remained steadfast to this commitment over the years, painting the same glass, within the same surroundings, from the same angle every day. To date, the series includes nearly 5,000 individual paintings. - thru May 24

"Therefore, dear Sir, love your solitude and try to sing out with the pain it causes you. For those who are near you are far away… And this shows that the space around you is beginning to grow vast… Be happy about your growth, in which of course you can’t take anyone with you, and be gentle with those who stay behind; be confident and calm in front of them and don’t torment them with your doubts and don’t frighten them with your faith or joy, which they wouldn’t be able to comprehend. Seek out some simple and true feeling of what you have in common with them, which doesn’t necessarily have to alter when you yourself change again and again; when you see them, love life in a form that is not your own and be indulgent toward those who are growing old, who are afraid of the aloneness that you trust…. And don’t expect any understanding; but believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance, and have faith that in this love there is a strength and a blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it."— from Letters to a Young Poet by Rainer Maria Rilke

Sunrise over river bend by Pvince
"Hoeryongpo Village, in North Gyeongsang Province, got its name from the bends of the Naeseong River, a tributary of the Nakdong River. The river takes a 350 degree turn in front of Mt. Biryong, which is 190 meters high. The area is small enough to scoop up with a shovel and is known as the "island within the mainland”, as it is surrounded by the river. The best way to enjoy the view is to walk up to the observatory along the 1.5 kilometer trail that leads up to Jangan Temple on Mt. Biryong, which was built during the Unified Silla Kingdom (668-935). Moving up to the second observatory, visitors can find the "bongsudae", or the beacon mound, which was restored in Nov. 1997. The area has been developed as a tourist spot ever since 1997, with numerous hiking trails and parks, and was also the location for the hit drama "Autumn in My Heart" (2002)."

Gwanghallu 남원 광한루 춘향제 by Pinetree1967
"Also known as Gwangtongnu, Gwanghalluwon Garden was originally built by Hwanghee Jeongseung in 1419 during the reign of Joseon Dynasty’s King Sejong. Because of its surreal beauty, Governor Jeong In-ji gave the garden the name ‘Gwanghallu’ in 1444, comparing it to a palace on the moon. It is famous as the location where Lee Mong-ryong and Chunhyang (two lovers from a well-known Korean folk story) first met. In the 1920’s Chunhyangsa Temple was established in the neighboring area and a portrait of Chunhyang was hung in a place of honor. On May 5th of every year, the garden is the venue of the Chunhyangjae Festival, celebrating the deep and lasting love of the famous couple.”
