• My language

    A white rose smells like living. I breathe it in to remind myself what it is to be missed from this dense embrace of Right-here-right-now. A red rose looks like lure. I stare at it so that the fire in me sees it and tries to imitate it. Monkey see, monkey do can be used […]

  • What do you do for a living?

    The dread question that begs another: are you worthy of a living? Am I? I don’t know. I sell myself as high as I’m able to, but I never received the scale of worthiness. I watched this movie, About a boy, and in it this guy Hugh Grant was playing, had no job because of steady […]

  • Ergo sum. That’s all we know.

    Unfortunately we don’t have direct knowledge on the first part, that is to say, I don’t have a direct knowledge of my own thinking because I am trapped in it.

  • A Mirror of Reason

    The biggest irrational fear in my entire life has been, and still is, that my reflection in the mirror will move independently of me. My second biggest irrational fear is that if I touch the mirror, I might get sucked onto the other side. Somehow my brain has a weak seam somewhere and sometimes, for […]
