Windstill

Die Wolke schlief, direkt unter dem Mondauge. Die Luft atmete wie aus schlafender Lunge, so warm auf Haut und Lippen wie ein windstiller Kuss.

"Do you remember the happiest moment of your life?""One time back in 73’, I went to see a show at the Village Vanguard by Rahsaan Roland Kirk. He was amazing. He could play three saxophones at one time. I went to his last set of the night, and I got there early and found him sitting at the bar. I went up to him and asked if I could join him on stage for a song, but he told me that he wouldn’t have the time. ‘If you change your mind,’ I told him, ‘I’ll be sitting in the front row corner.’ I told him exactly where I’d be because he was blind. Then right at the end of the show, he started waving toward my table. I got up there and started playing, and at one point he motioned for the whole band to stop, and I got to play a solo up on the stage. Everyone was clapping for me. I rode home on the subway that night feeling like a king. Feeling like I could play with anyone in the world."

Sitting alone on the street. Could play with anyone.

Mond auf dunklem Nebelbett

One of the first photographs of the moon, taken in 1857 by John Dillwyn Llewelyn and his daughter Thereza. Llewelyn was an entrepreneur and one of the founders of the Royal Photographic Society. He and Thereza were both keen amateur astronomers and took a number of lunar photographs from the observatory Llewelyn had had built on his Penllergare estate in South Wales. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert bought many of his pioneering photographs to add to their collection.

"My dad stole my car.""Your dad stole your car?""Yep. He hot wired it. I got a call from the cops that my car was in a high speed chase down the interstate. They ended up spike stripping him, but he still tried to get away. He broke his foot kicking in the windshield. Inside the car they found a whiskey bottle, beer cans, and strip club vouchers. At least he totaled the thing so I got insurance money."

Fragilität …

"To be a good human being is to have a kind of openness to the world, an ability to trust uncertain things beyond your own control, that can lead you to be shattered in very extreme circumstances for which you were not to blame. That says something very important about the human condition of the ethical life: that it is based on a trust in the uncertain and on a willingness to be exposed; it’s based on being more like a plant than like a jewel, something rather fragile, but whose very particular beauty is inseparable from its fragility.”

Martha Nussbaum

(Nussbaum bezeichnet sich als Aristotelikerin und stellt die Frage nach dem guten Leben in den Mittelpunkt ihrer Arbeiten zur praktischen Philosophie. Ursprünglich Altphilologin, bezieht sie sich stark auf die Philosophie des Aristoteles und der Stoa, die sie der Literatur von der griechischen Tragödie bis zum modernen Roman gegenüberstellt. Sie vertritt die These, dass eine sachgemäße Ethik die Ebene der Emotionen einbeziehen und ihnen einen eigenen Erkenntniswert zuschreiben muss.)
