Vintage Memories

Mediterranean smile...


You know...


Yes, you know it, of course...
You know how much I love you...
You know how you matter for me...
You know what you mean, who you are for me...

I love you, M.
I will not forget you...

Phoenix


You are a phoenix...
So you cannot die... I mean, die for good, for real...
Because a phoenix does not die, he lives again...
He comes back to life, it could not be otherwise...
Yes, he lives again...

You are a phoenix...
And you live forever...
Indeed... You cannot die...

Nobody can kill you... Fate, bad luck, death, no, they cannot...
They cannot kill you...

A phoenix lives for ever...

You live for ever...


Greek statue


I am supposed to be a kouros in the Athens National Museum...

But tonight, just for you, Mark Aschenbach, I will come back to life...

I will be a living boy...

I will breath... 

Do you love me ?

Am I lovable ?

Please tell me...

I will be a marble kouros for ever...

Just in a few seconds...

Do you love me ?

Mark, do you love me ?

Mirror


Any mirror is a trap...

Who are you ? Me ? Someone else ?

Who am I desiring ?

Are those lips yours or mine ?

A kiss could be the answer...

I feel your breath...

Beyond words


Words of human language are unable to express what you feel, in this swimming pool, while enjoying water, cold water, in your face, on your chest, on your shoulders, on your arms....

Words of human language cannot express what I feel, while looking at this pic... Youth, sensuality, cold, warm, water, breath, caress, being caressed, water making love with a boy, little death, trying to breathe again...

Please, please, please... !


"Please, Mark Daschenbach...

I'm not sure I understand everything in your blog...

You are sometimes so... well... poetical ? Abstract ? Conceptual ? Intellectual ? Sometimes, yes ?

But I would love to be featured in your blog..

I don't know why... 

You probably know why...

Let's talk... LOL... "


Dear unknown visitor,
Thanks for your message and for this pic...
You are... cute... Yes, definitely cute...
And okay, let's talk...
Mark

African Eros


Apollo on the Beach


Lips, eyes


Lips and eyes are the focus of my gaze, when I meet a boy for the first time..
Eyes are a library... How many books, how many stories to read in these eyes?
Lips are the gate of the soul... Words and breath, silence and kisses...


Eros


There is this mystery of another skin, another body, another breath...
There is this paradox, being two, and one, and two again, and just one, one more time...
There is this unique experience, embracing, being embraced,
Kissing, being kissed, caressing, being caressed

Two bodies, one soul... Two souls, one body... you and me...

Metaphysics of Eros.
Of gay Eros...


Platon alive


Why Plato(n)?

Because this pic deals with beauty, with a beautiful body, with the idea of beauty?
Or because this pic deals with Eros, with desire, with the love of boys?

A world to explore


A boy is a world to explore, to travel through, to discover...
This world has its own morphology and geography
Its own climate, its own atmosphere...
This world has its own geology, its own memory, its own history...

A boy is a book to be read...
A map to be drawn...

A boy is a starting point for a journey...

Gymnastics


Sculpting his own body...

Corps de ballet


Dance is the poetry of the body
Dance exists at the crossroads of time and space
It is an abstraction, a concept, but also concrete moves and gestures
Dance is like the sublimation of the human body, either male or female.
Dance is the music of the human body.
A music of beauty and desire.
There is no dance without Eros...

Beautiful face


"Un beau visage, surtout s'il appartient à un jeune corps charmant, est une coupe où boire sans fin... Du moins le croit-on, car la soif s'étanche, et l'âge éteint"

Dancing with the Waves


I am currently listening to...




Fantastic album... Imagine Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen and Daniel Lanois playing and singing together... Beautiful lyrics, gorgeous songs, sophisticated instrumental textures and dreamy and eery climates, a unique groove...

It is currently my favorite album !!  You should listen to "The War on Drugs" as soon as possible !

Summer Happiness


Butterflies


"Le bonheur est comme les papillons
Il vole autour de nous et puis s'en va
Il faut l'attraper au vol, le bonheur,
Il est là, le bonheur, si proche, il est là
Il faut attraper les papillons autour de nous..."

Tears


Don't cry, please, don't cry...
Let me wipe your tears...

You are not alone

Inner thunder storms do not last
Soon the sun will shine again, in the sky

Soon, you will smile again, when all the tears are gone...

The Boy Behind the Mirror


Sweet Smile


Un sourire sur ton visage
C'est la naissance d'un monde
Un ciel sans nuages
Un espoir un désir
Le rêve d'un plaisir
Un livre qui s'ouvre
Sur une histoire à écrire
A deux mains
A demain

Silver beauty


Be cool !


Oops... What did I say ?


I have something to say...
I don't know where I should begin...
Where I should end...
May I trust you ? You will not tell anyone, promissed ?
May I tell you my secret ?
You will be the only one to know...
