Hypnotic rays and a short history of hairstyling, Feb. 1 Journal entry


Do you think I know what I'm doing?
That for one breath or half a breath I belong to myself?

As much as a pen knows what it's writing,
or the ball can guess where it's going next.
(Rumi, arranged by Coleman Barks)

I'm not always sure what drives me to look at individual images, but I love that I
found a history of hairstyling today, from ancient times to the present:









Even more compelling is the concise visual history of hypnosis I find:




This last is a truly alarming image I can't shake out of my mind....

My favorite hypnotic image is one of a somnambulant lady surrounded by dazed tigers.

I'll have to upload that one in the next post, however, because for some reason the uploader doesn't like it as much as I do. For now I'll try to avoid smoking under hypnosis...
