"Tender Wishes" (温柔的愿望)
"Tender Wishes" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
Wilhelm Reich once said “Every muscular rigidity contains the history and the meaning of its origin.” What is your origin? Did you start as a small caterpillar, munch munch munching your way up to a chrysalis-encapsulated, soon-to-be invigorated little butterfly man? Who knows, man? Jeff Bridges once said “The Dude abides” and since then all we’ve been is nihilists pretending that we aren’t, and having a damn good time while we do. Reich was right, but I’m too low on Orgone Energy to explain why. Let me explain why: Shanghai is a magic city full of secrets that take time to come out and greet you. But when they do, it’s like you’ve been invited to secret party all the time. And everything changes, and everything has changed. It will all be okay though, even if your life’s research is burned or you lose a million dollars. Let me explain why: paint dri es slowly. Can you make it dry faster? Wilhelm Reich describes the Ultimate principle as “primal cosmic energy, the love in your body, your integrity, and your perception of nature in you and outside of you.” What do you think?
