What I'm Reading

Louise Bourgeois 

 “The spider is a repairer. If you bash into the web of a spider, she doesn’t get mad. She weaves and repairs it.”
― Louise Bourgeois

I started reading Louise Bourgeois Destruction of the Father / Reconstruction of the Father: Writings and Interviews, 1923-1997 last night. It's pulled me in. Lisa Congdon recommended it somewhere (I can't remember if it was her Instagram page or her blog.) Maybe it was Brainpickings that recommended it and I saw Lisa's art of Louise. Anyways, I'm reading it now. I'm not the only one who recommends it (lots of lovely photos of the inside of the book can be found here.)

 “It is not so much where my motivation comes from but rather how it manages to survive.”
― Louise Bourgeois
