A Little Friday Melancholy
Friday, July 21, 2006
Lena had linked to these overdyed vintage scarves by Jerome Jerome, and they reminded me instantly of this photo by artist Bas Jan Ader entitled "I'm Too Sad to Tell You" (he also did a short film of the same name). Apparently, he sent this image via postcard to his friends but never revealed what is was that made him cry, only that it was genuine. It's always really gotten to me, kind of like those scarves.
