“Att tro är inte att se”
It’s a while since I posted one of Christer’s fantastic quotes; I have to be in the right mood for that.
For you that don’t know who Christer is – he is one of Sweden’s most famous photographers and he was also a bon vivant, visionary and an adventurer. Instead of writing a diary he wrote his thoughts on small envelops and in the end of the week he divided them into 7 categories.
101 of his “envelop thoughts” has been published in a little book, “101 Kloka Ord” (101 Wise Words) that I have fallen in love it, because I can relate to nearly every one of them. They are so down to earth and full of common sense.
Christer Strömholm died in 2002, 84 years old – but both his art and words will live on forever.
I can image that he wasn’t an easy to man to live with – but I wouldn’t mind giving it a try. I’m besotted with him.
You that knows me well … know that I’m not a believer as such, but I respect whatever people put beliefs and faiths to – there is no right or wrong. But at times I find/think that all religions ( beliefs) makes us blind – blind for the truth and reality. Just as Christer are saying – to believe isn’t the same as to see.
What do I believe in??? I believe in people that make a different to those that needs help and our planet here and now, and I can be blind at times.
But it doesn’t have to relate to only our beliefs and faiths – isn’t so that when we really believe in something we can only see the pluses and not the cons.
Christer loved Puccini and Albinoni.
