The Peaceful Breakup

What time is it?

How can a few numbers contain all of time?...I can feel your lips. I'm still here.

I can see you. You're beautiful.

You always say that. It's all you ever say.

Now I know why your friends are so smart.

Catharine is not my friend. She's my doctor.

I knew that. But I didn't know it.

Sometimes I think she knows me better than you do.

Do I wanna know?

Smelling the Coffee

They say that the greatest flaw of consciousness is that it makes us believe the world revolves around us, that we're the center of the universe. It makes us inherently self centered and selfish. Therefore, we often fail to look beyond our own beliefs, opinions, relationships, financial issues, success, sex, family, ego, and pride.

The Man with the Miniature Orchestra - by Dave Algonquin

There were phrases of Beethoven’s 9th symphony that still made Coe cry. He always thought it had to do with the circumstances of the composition itself. He imagined Beethoven, deaf and soul-sick, his heart broken, scribbling furiously while Death stood in the doorway, clipping his nails. Still, Coe thought, it might have been living in the country that was making him cry; it was killing him with its silence and loneliness, making everything ordinary too beautiful to bear.

I never thought I'd say this, but my memories are fading away as time passes by. And as I look back, seemingly ordinary events and incidents feel like my little private treasures from the past. I'm afraid of losing it all, and want to write down each and every thing before time gets the better of me.
