I read this and thought ‘wow that’s nice, I should reblog it’.
Then I stopped, and I read it again. Word by word, thinking hard about how I can actually apply this to my life. I’ve read it about 50 times now and I still can’t get it out of my head; what if we all did this? What if we forgot about fights, sadness, arguments, anger, and embarrassment? What if we lived for the small things and forgot about everything else?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying we should ignore important things in life or live with ‘no regrets’. All I’m saying is that it really is true; at the end of the day, all that we should really be thinking about is the little things that made us happy, even if it was for a mere second.

The Russian Ending, 2001
Beautiful Sheffield, 2001
(2 of 20 parts, Photo-etching on paper)
Within her series The Russian Ending, Tacita Dean documented historical and tragical occurrences through postcards. Single sheets added into a sequence obtain filmic quality. Dean wants the single parts of The Russian Ending to be understood as final images of imaginary Russian movies. At the beginning of the last century the last sequences of European movies were shot twice, while the ‘Happy End’ was replaced by a ‘Tragic End’, to be successful within the Russian audience. Therefore, the cycle is a rethinking of the intercultural similarities and differences between the east and west. It shows collective strokes of fate that are repeated throughout cultural or national boundaries. Moreover, it visualizes how the occurrences fall to be forgotten as well.
