HOUSE OF CONTRADICTION
"Do I contradict myself? Very well then, I contradict myself. (I am large, I contain multitudes.)"
- Walt Whitman
This phrase was written by the poet Walt Whitman which describes the Gemini.
Such as it is, I was born under the stars of the Gemini. And this is one of the main reason this site is called the House of Contradiction. It is a dream of mine, to be able to build this "house" where I can freely explore my passion in photography and arts and beauty.
When I had no roof, I made
Audacity my roof. When I had
No supper, my eyes dined.
When I had no eyes I listened
When I had no ears I thought
When I had no thought I waited.
When I had no father I made
Care my father. When I had
No mother I embraced order.
When I had no friend I made
Quiet my friend. When I had no
Enemy I opposed my body.
When I had no temple I made
My voice my temple. When I have
No priest, my tongue is my choir.
When I have no means fortune
Is my means. When I had
Nothing, death will be my fortune.
Need is my tactic, detachment
Is my strategy. When I had
No lover I courted my sleep.
My name is Arthurus Jackson.
I am also Jackson Tan.
Borne in Malaysia on the 10th day of the 6th month.
I was borne under the constellation of the Gemini, and such named my site and dream the House of Contradiction.
I stand at 167cm tall, my weight till this day I do not know.
I love photography and arts. I used to draw, but it is now a thing of the past. My other passion is writing and reading. For me, writing is a way to release all the imaginations within my mind, all the ideas and inspirations. It is also a way I express myself.
Some may find it useless; but to me, it keeps me alive and going.
And I live in my writings.
Music is another. Not just listening, but playing it. But alas, I have no talent in it. Maybe I have yet to find the instruments of my desire that sounds right to my soul.
And dancing. I love the freedom of movement, to move in any way I want.
I like many things in this world, and hate many others too.
I love the colour blue, and to some extent red, black and white. But my love for the colour blue has been fortified by an event in my life. Blu. . .
