I find that as I get older I do not cry at sad things, but rather when people do good things, because it is so rare
Roger Ebert


Tengo knew that time could become deformed as it moved forward. Time itself was uniform in composition, but once consumed, it took on a deformed shape.
Haruki Murakami, 1Q84


Today, a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration – that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There’s no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we’re the imagination of ourselves. Here’s Tom with the weather.

So I did some ironing today

Feeling domestic today and decided to do some ironing.
everything was going fine, almost finishing the last batch, ironing a dress that i have never bothered before.
Ironed it on mid-heat level, was thinking how awesome this dress is. how i love it for its price, durability and comfort level. And I was getting too confident and wanted to give the maximum heat a try.
And man, rayon burns. Burn like shredded chicken.

So, I spent the rest of the night and next morning, patching it up. Not too shabby i think.

sweet Osmanthus

Osmanthus fragrans

Coffee Prince OST

My go-to album set when I wanna be calm and concentrate.
Perfect for walking in the dark, examining cactus.

(This came up when I was looking at the Osmanthus fragrans in the Cloud Forest. Looking back at the path where I came from, all I see is dry ice. There was noone along that path but me. And I just stood there, eyes closed, taking in the smell of iciness and flora, thinking of the Mexican.)
