Overheard Conversations

[This is part of the Release the Kraken! series.]

One of the Categories I created when I first set up Quilas was “Overheard Conversations”. These were to be snippets of people’s conversations out of context, the way they are when you pass someone who is talking. I didn’t pursue this category, though. Maybe I will going forward.

Overheard at MoMA

    The Scream is the scream of desperate isolation in industrial society.

[This wasn’t really overheard — it was spoken to me by a friend,
when we went to see The Scream at MoMA.]

Natalie du Prés Says

Regarding the book “The Collins Family in America”:

    “Josette, I don’t understand it. What I don’t understand, I run from.
    Is that wrong?”

[This wasn’t overheard either — it was just funny. I was watching the old Dark Shadows TV show during this time.]
