jamais vu 

An enormous tree withstood outside my window. I loved looking at it when it swayed with the wind. Monday's storm prostrated it. Enormous tree is no longer there. And I feel so completely unprotected.

"Ad hoc ergo ut locutio tua bona et recta sit utilisque permaneat, in primis debes cohibere spiritum tuum, ne prorumpat ad os tuum, et linguam inducat ad locutionem inutilem."

~Albertanus Brixiensis, "De locutione et cohibendo spiritu et lingue" in De amore et dilectione Dei et proximi et aliarum rerum et de forma vitaæ

È la malattia di quel che vuole tornare a casa ma non può. Sono stanca di questa nostalghia che non si guarisce. E cerco la liberzaione attraverso la fuga.

"To keep myself, to keep my body and my speech, I must retain the work within me, conjoin myself with it so that there will be no opportunity for the Thief to come between it and me: it must be kept from falling far from my body as writing."

Who am I to get angry at anyone? Who am I to be disgusted by anyone? I am—after all—no one.

A friend of mine sent me a link to a video. The first minute—the only minute I could bear (I abruptly closed my browser's window)—added a lot more grief to my cup. I did not need to see that. I already feel like jumping out of my window...

"After so much imposture, so much fraud, it is comforting to contemplate a beggar. He, at least, neither lies nor lies to himself: his doctrine, if he has one, he embodies; work he dislikes, and he proves it; wanting to possess nothing, he cultivates his impoverishment, the condition of his freedom. His thought is resolved into his being and his being into his thought. He has nothing, he is himself, he endures: to live on a footing with eternity is to live from day to day, from hand to mouth. Thus, for him, other men are imprisoned in illusion."

~Emil Cioran, "Thinking Against Oneself" in The Temptation to Exist


And I wonder...some pieces work, some others do not. Working pieces and non-working pieces are part of the system regardless. Is the beggar not as "imprisoned in illusion" as "other men"? Is he not, after all, a consignment?

And the wind whispers, "Never!" 

She feels like the fly. She too dreams. She too aspires. She could become. But a guilty thing cannot desire. A guilty thing should not desire. She thus deludes herself. And constantly repeats to herself, "I do not really want to." Her mind is occupied by her own decay and fall.

8 1/2 

1) I do not speak very much. Out loud. I freeze. In fact. When I do speak I leap from one subject to other in a matter of seconds. Some people find it funny. Some people hate it. It is very difficult for me to focus. Most of the time I am lost, adrift, completely engaged in some sort of astral journey.

2) I prefer night over day. I do not feel as if night were a lot more inspiring. I just feel safe if I sleep by day. I feel safe if I know people around me are awake. Yes. I suspect I am afraid of the dark. Silly, I know.

I do not have many friends. The few I have, I rarely see. I tend to avoid people. I do not feel superior to anyone. I just feel as if I were frighteningly deformed. Make no mistake. It is not about my physical appearance. It is all inside. Impossible to allow people come near when one feels abominable.

I know not what to call this nor will I urge that is a sort of empathy and/or attraction towards everything queer.

5) I always cry from excitement in classical music concerts. People, naturally, do not like to go with me.

6) Sometimes I wish I could live in Mirrimause's belly. Not as a flea or a tick but as I, a tiny I.

7) Some other times I wish I were already 40 years old. I keep waiting for something to happen. I keep waiting for someone to come. Something exciting. Someone mostly harmless.

8) I am afraid—to the verge of tears—of all sorts of bugs.

8 1/2)
Butterflies included.

If there is anything worse than a bad movie that would have to be fans from hell who shamelessly attempt to fill the 900 gaps in the plot.
