There is poetry in our urban landscapes …

a good friend of mine sent a link to eIpnosis, a psychological therapy site that sees itself as “the only independent source for information about the imposition of a tickbox culture of state regulation on the psychological therapies”.

well, i love rebellion.

and i love the unusual and i love the unexpected.

especially when i’ve entered foreign soil, like in this case: i’m not a psych-therapist. anyway, eIpnosis has a page dedicated to street poetry (actually a link to a site called mind gymnasium) – just a long list of photos with meaning, collected from urban landscapes. this post (street art) and the next one (other poetry) show some of my favs.

[these guys also have lots of what seesm to be thought-provoking reading material – i might report on some of it in future]

could be anywhere, really: “poor france; 30% invertebrate opportunists, 18% insignificant sheep, 11% profound idiots” … and that doesn’t mean the rest is much better! (aubenas, france)
