"Certainly there’s something wretched and hateful about gentlemen scrutinizing and inspecting women. Their eyes stroll boldly and disrespectfully about the peripheries of the female person, thereby performing something neither wise nor beneficial but rather destructive, for there’s no love in it… ."

Rober Walser, The Robber (1925) (translation by Susan Bernofsky, 2000)

This post marks the first anniversary of this blog. Because of occasional and/or accidental second posts on a given day, this is the 368th post. To celebrate a year of rotting food, I will be taking a break from posting images, but will, during that break (the duration of which will not be very long) happily entertain any and all serious asks relating to this blog. Thank you for being here, and thanks for sticking around.

"That’s how it is for many people: finding themselves displeased, they allow this ounce of displeasure to put them more and more out of sorts, as though they were being borne off in a coach. A person needn’t find himself insufferable just because he happens, on some occasion, no to be in good spirits. There’s no cause to hate oneself just because one’s been, perhaps, a bit hateful. But, alas, this sometimes happens, which is perfectly stupid. One should make an effort not to see just the wickedness in what is wicked, but its beauty as well, for it is beautiful, far, far more beautiful than some dull, friendly face sitting for its photograph, which in itself lacks all value, as it bears witness to a lack of experience."

"This woman stood in her surroundings with such self-assurance because she always remained a little foreign within them, because she never ceased entirely to tremble, as it were, never felt completely at ease… . And then it’s like this: on our own native soil and sod, in our own homes, it’s more difficult for us to develop. Sometimes a place where we do not belong in the usual sense is where we best belong, precisely since we didn’t grow up there."

"The Robber took out his heart, gazed at it and locked it away again, then wandered on, down into the valley, where a castle stood in the middle of a park and a fountain in the middle of a pool in which swam trout whose reddish spots smiled like feverish girls, and he went into the castle and was shown a memorable hall upon whose polished floor centuries-old bloodstains could still be seen. He asked their meaning, and everything required for their understanding was willingly explained to him."

"I now address an appeal to the healthy: don’t persist in reading nothing but healthy books, acquaint yourselves also with so-called pathological literature, from which you may derive considerable edification. Healthy people should always, so to speak, take certain risks. For what other reason, blast and confound it, is a person healthy?"

I watched a guy vomit in a grocery store parking lot once. His friend looked at me and said, “My friend’s got a wound on his hand that’s making him drowsy.”
But perhaps more importantly: the way the woman looks at the puker after she’s fallen as though it’s all the puker’s fault.
