Tunnel Vision

Perturbing Self-Portraits
~ Tunnel Vision ~




There's a joke that the optimist sees a light at the end of the tunnel whilst the pessimist sees an oncoming train.

This here poetry plaque from the inventive Bibliothèque François Mitterand railway station in Paris says: "L'obscure est un chemin, la lumière est un lieu", which is "Dark is a way, and light is a place" from Poem On His Birthday by Dylan Thomas.

I have no idea what it's about but there are birds in it, which is nice, as I've been writing about birds today, and he talks about the sea, and sailing out to die at the end, which is quite a cool way to go.
