Today I’m hitchhiking in Romania from Suceava to Piatra Neamţ . Here’s a photograph by Romanian artist Mircea Cantor (who is exhibiting in the MNAC of Bucharest, see here). A hitchhiker with a blank sign, going in any direction.

Here’s some Flash Fiction by Lydia Davis:
If your eyeballs move, this means that you’re thinking, or about to start thinking.
If you don’t want to be thinking at this particular moment, try to keep your eyeballs still.
Everywhere eyeballs are aflame. Odilon Redon. 1888.
