Nights will flame with Fire

It was the first thing I heard about Marie when she arrived with Dave and Ivana at my home for a weekend of photos and minor escalation. It was the first thing they told me about her that immediately connected us and set the mood for the next days: in the car, on the way from the South, she had read to the other two from her old copy of Ham on Rye.

Reading people Bukowski in preparation of meeting me is just the right amount of nerdy craziness that had me hooked in an instant. Marie became one of my favorite persons on this planet within a few conversations and encounters. Our photos mean a lot to me. One of them even spurred a big discussion on the web by people who mistook the quote we gave it with the content of the image. And since we were both trading BUK quotes back and forth while posting some of the images, this post could never go without one:

isolation is the gift,
all the others are a test of your
endurance, of
how much you really want to
do it.
and you’ll do it
despite rejection and the worst odds
and it will be better than
anything else
you can imagine.

if you’re going to try,
go all the way.
there is no other feeling like
you will be alone with the gods
and the nights will flame with
fire. – Charles Bukowski
