a meaningful new year to everyone!

and when 2010 ends, over cups of coffee tell and retell our 2010 stories.



i'll be away for a number of days.

it could be
in my absence,
people will tell stories, seemingly far-fetched or twisted.
as they are beyond me,

wish me back well
in a sort of

a homecoming.


crime, punishment

where is it i've read that someone condemned to death says or think, an hour before his death, that if he had to live on some high rock, on such a narrow ledge that he'd only room to stand, and the ocean, everlasting darkness, everlasting solitude, everlasting tempest around him, if he had to remain standing on a square yard of space all his life, a thousand years, eternity, it were better to live so than to die at once! only to live, to live and live! life, whatever it may be! (crime and punishment, fyodor dostoyevsky)
