Running through The Louvre, from Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Dreamers. 

Today the filmmaker turns 74. And to this day The Louvre forbids running.

Text in the photographs:

Carry Me Daddy, 1989

Carry me daddy, all the way home. 
I’ll lean on your shoulder, even after I’ve grown. 
And when me get there, tuck me in bed. 
I’ll still be your son, even after you’re dead. 
While I am dreaming, sing me a tune. 
A song of my birthright, the sun and the moon.

My Father Could Walk in the Sky, 1989

My father could walk in the sky.
He promised to teach me how.
But he left without saying goodbye.
I don’t cry.
I’m a grown up now.

So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.” 
― Christopher McCandless
