1. , 2. Handprints, 3. #fifty two - the voice of an artist, 4. Photocopied (Day 53)
Yesterday I started reading the book The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo written by the Swedish writer Stieg Larsson. My mum just finished it. The first thing that caught my attention is the fact that Stieg never wrote a book before but was a journalist. He left his trilogy at a publisher and soon after that died of a heart attack at the age of 50. He never has known that he became world's second best seller in 2008, that his books sold more then 27 million coppies in 40 countries. What I do like about this is that he will be remembered as a great writer, and that he left something beautiful to the world.
This mosaic is about leaving 'marks' before we die. Most people are not able to do so, and I don't dream about leaving something so that I will be remembered a 100 years after my death. I do think that art and literature are the best assets to leave before we say farewell to this world...
