We are the Goddess


La Victoire de Samothrace


I sketched the Nike of Samothraki as crowds of tourists paused to take a photo (strangely sometimes of me) then passed on to the next attraction. Back in Australia, I reflect, I write and I share these thoughts with you.

Goddess of victory

wings clipped

captured in digital

adored for ten seconds

    • Everything in a museum is ‘adored for ten seconds’ and left to die in the hollow walls. (This is why I love the vibrance of street art.) I sat with Nike for a long time, almost trampled by the passing crowds. Yes, geo, I think you know her. For sure she is at her island with the Planus and the waterfalls watching the ever-changing sea. Bodies are only a shell afterall.

  4. En vie, le reflet d’une victoire est peut-etre plus doux et subtil que la dure realite
