every day, a date

August 2nd, 2012 — Eighty-eight years from the day that James Baldwin was born, on a Saturday in 1924. For the man who turned an arbitrary day into a date to mark, a few of his words woven into scenes of the Paris streets he loved to walk.

“All art is a kind of confession…”

“the intangible dreams of people have a tangible effect on the world.”

“Experience, which destroys innocence, also leads one back to it.”

“I am what time, circumstance, history, have made of me, certainly, but I am also, much more than that. So are we all.”

  1. I love the experience quote. And the fact you chose a rainy day for your pictures. A beautiful post 🙂

      I love that quote, too. In fact, it was a rainy day when I read Baldwin sitting in one of the cafes where he spent many a day and night. I often wonder where people are when they pen their words… thank you! 🙂
