‘The LEAVES are falling, falling as if from far up,
as if orchards were dying high in space.
Each leaf falls as if it were motioning ‘no.’

And tonight the HEAVY earth is falling
away from all other STARS in the loneliness.

We’re ALL falling. This hand here is falling.
And look at the other one. It’s in them all.

And yet there is SOMEONE, whose hands
infinitely calm, holding up all this falling.’
(Rainer Maria RILKE)

Sail the WILDEST stretch

March 29, 2010

‘If you had your time over again-would you do it ALL the same?
Down through all the twists & bends, are there MOMENTS you’d erase? …
And if your course could be reset – would you steer your ship my way? Or would you sail the WILDEST stretch, just to feel the force of the waves?
Would you just leave me waiving on the dock as you pull away, savouring the BITTER TASTE?’

OF MEMORIES & fuel

February 21, 2010


‘You know what I think? … That people’s MEMORIES maybe are the fuel they burn to stay alive. Whether those memories have any actual importance or not, it doesn’t matter as far as the maintenance of LIFE is concerned. They’re all just fuel. Advertising fillers in the newspaper, philosophy books, dirty pictures in a magazine, a bundle of 10,000 yen bills: when you feed them to the fire, they are all just paper. The fire isn’t thinking, ‘Oh, this is Kant’ or ‘Oh, this is the YOMIURI evening edition,’ or ‘Nice tits,’ while it burns. To the fire, they are NOTHING but scraps of paper. It’s the exact same thing. Important memories, not so important memories, totally useless memories: there’s no distinction – they are all just FUEL.’ (HaRuki MuraKami)

LeaVing TIME aGain…

February 7, 2010

I talked to Lou, he quit back in ’92.
Says he misses it bad, those were the BEST TIME he ever had.
He said ‘Give it hell to the end ’cause once you quit you can’t get it back again,”

We’re leaving, LEAVING again
Can’t recall where are we’ve been.
I guess we’ll just go
Go till we’re too old
Or we run out of ROAD. (jeWel)

“Among other things, you’ll find that you’re not the 1st person who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by HUMAN BEHAVIOUR. You’re by no means alone on that score, you’ll be excited and stimulated to know. Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some of them kept RECORDS of their TROUBLES. You’ll learn from them – if you want to. Just as SOMEDAY, if you have something to offer, someone will learn something from you. It’s a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. And it isn’t education. It’s history. It’s POETRY.” — J.D. Salinger (The Catcher in the Rye)

Set SAIL

January 6, 2010

“20 years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, SAIL AWAY from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” (Mark TwAin)

The GREATEST

“Melt me down
into big black ARMOUR
Leave no trace
Of grace
Just in your honour
Lower me down
To culprit south” (Cat PoWer)

ME & MYself

December 20, 2009

‘Although there was a time in my life, where I was keen in wearing other people’s dresses and slipping into someone ELSE’s shoes, I reached a point where being ME & MYself became of utmost importance and the pursue of all these things that life had forced me to postpone for the one or the other reason became of HIGH priority…’
