Staying Stylish in Suburbia

A Moment

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

A friend of mine posted this the other day and I haven't been able to to stop thinking about it since. It is so beautiful, bittersweet and raw. I get teary every time I see it. 

Here is a little bit of the back story- "Marina Abramovic and Ulay started an intense love story in the 70's. When they felt the relationship was ending, they walked the Great Wall of China, each from one end, meeting for one last big hug in the middle and never seeing each other again. At her 2010 MoMa show Marina shared a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in fron of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing and this is what happened.

What do you think about this as a piece? Is there anyone from your past (lover or not) that you've imagined encountering again? Would words be necessary? Or would it be enough to catch their eye and simply share in a moment?
