Ha! You just inspired me to book a ticket to see the Schulman doco, Visual Acoustics this weekend. And in keeping with the film festival theme, today it would have to be Agnes Varda.

It would be Nicolas Bouvier.
Because of his books L'USAGE DU MONDE and LE POISSON SCORPION
They have be translated but I don't know the english titles

I would sit with Harold Spriggs. He was the bee's knees and the cat's miaow.

Buckminster Fuller.
I would love to hear what he had to say about the world. I think it would be full of insights and dashed with hope...

Oooh I love everyones thoughts on this one. Frida would be an amazing visit. I think Louise Bourgeois would be my pick.

and p.s. Julius knew a thing or two about the ladies too! His presentations always had some beauty inbetween the gorgeous homes he shot. He used to some to our school every once in awhile... while some of the old guard were still around.

This post is beautiful.

Today, I think, Doris Lessing.

Kat said...

oh...Agnes Varda... She's such an inspiration! I think I would have to say Bjørk! She's so strong and beatiful!
