On gravity and stuff


“Every morning, I wake up and forget just for a second that it happened. But once my eyes open, it buries me like a landslide of sharp, sad rocks. Once my eyes open, I’m heavy, like there’s too much gravity on my heart.”
(Sarah OcklerTwenty Boy Summer)



Apple eating


My heart and your heart are the two halves of an apple. Our seeds are the core of past lives lived together.Our flesh is the juice and flesh of fruit covered in one skin that has been cut open by time’s claws. And as blood flows from open wounds and life out of cut down trees,the cut is aching constantly, endlessly, like clockwork in a heart.Can you hear it throbbing?


What happens to the dreams unlived?



Is this the best of the myriad of possible worlds? Is this the best it gets?One of the many alternative universes or the one that is supposed to be?Carrying loads of heavy baggage, staggering under the weight, balancing oneself while with each individual choice we slide further, leaving behind the trace of what could have been, might have been, should have been, that IS for real somewhere else,in a parallel world, two or a dozen galaxies away. And what decides which is for real?Is it one single detail that differs there, or everything is completely different? Is there an absolute best and and absolute horrible of these worlds? Are its people exactly the same?Is my version of good somebody else’s hell?Or I’m living a nightmare for somebody else’s heaven?And what happens to the dreams un-lived? Do they wither or remain deposits for future attempts?Could  we somehow slide through the wormholes to try all of the possible lives out so that no dream is left to die? Or we just live one version of the script and leave  the others as we choose our food, our clothes,our accessories, our cars,our houses…hoping for the best of all possible worlds….

Citatul zilei – Quote of the Day


“Privirea -cel mai scump lucru pe care îl poate avea un om.De ce?…..Pentru că din prima privire ne îndrăgostim,după ochi se cunoaşte adevărata stare  de zbucium a sufletului .Ochii femeii iubite sunt marginea lumii,după care nu se mai poate ascunde un “dincolo de aparenţe”,cea mai sinceră privire,cea care din prima secundă îţi dă de înţeles că te leagă nu doar o singură persoană,ci o lume întreagă..un univers nepătruns de străini,unul colorat şi plin de iluzii….poate întradevăR……..poate că, într-adevăr, ochii femeii iubite sunt marginea lumii.” – Grigore Vieru

Children’s Thoughts on Love



“I think you’re supposed to get shot with an arrow or something,
but the rest of it isn’t supposed to be so painful.” 
 Manuel, age 8

“Love is the most important thing in the world, but baseball is pretty good too.”
Greg, age 8

“No one is sure why it happens, but I heard it has something to do with
how you smell…that’s why perfume and deodorant is so popular.”
Mae, age 9

“One way is to take the girl  out to eat. Make sure it’s something she likes to eat.
French fries usually works for me.”
 Bart, age 9

“Don’t do things like have smelly, green sneakers. You might get attention,
but attention ain’t the same thing as love.” 
 Alonzo, age 9 “

When a person gets kissed for the first time, they fall down
and they don’t get up for at least an hour.” 
 Wendy, age 8

“If you want to be loved by somebody who isn’t
already in your family, it doesn’t hurt to be beautiful.”
Anita, age 8

“I look at kissing like this: Kissing is fine if you like it,
but it’s a free country and nobody should be forced to do it.”
Michael, age 8

“Don’t say you love somebody and then change your mind … 
Love isn’t like picking what movie you want to watch.” 
 Natalie, age 9

“I’m not rushing into being in love. 
I’m finding fourth grade hard enough.” 
Regina, age 10
