One looks back at things that are long gone, and one wonders...

                                                 Celine: Memories are wonderful things,
                                                     if you don't have to deal with the past.

There just happens to be a very beautiful thing such as solitude

They say there is no such thing as happiness. No one is ever truly happy. Happiness is something that is much sought after. We do it in such subtle, involuntary ways even. We always want a little more, a little better. Everything we do is to feel better than before. Why? Why is it so needed, that we are happy? Why can we not embrace sadness and welcome it? Why is contentedness to be found only in happiness? The need for things around oneself, people to interact with is so pitiable that one is scared to even question their necessity in life. Relations – the societal need for them surpasses their actual role. It’s all just sad. Ergo, even though one may try hard to find it, happiness cannot be found.
It probably doesn’t even exist.

Solitude is least appreciated when given without being asked for. I was close to contentment while I was living alone. I miss that house. I miss my evenings right after work. I miss the nights.
Sure, times were hard what with the periodic lack of resources, but I pulled myself by.

Here is a picture taken right outside my door, on a rainy day, just as the skies cleared up...

Will I ever be feel like that again?

It is a question that would not have an answer.

All you have to do, is listen

Never will a fleeting moment escape without you giving it enough thought to add to it that gravity and magnitude it never had to begin with. Such is life. All the things you see and hear, you cannot help but give them some meaning. You form opinions and take opinions. More often than not, they will mean nothing. Everything is basically a sham of sorts. Isn't it bad enough that you are dictated by the societal norms formed over decades of false notions and flimsy perceptions? No, you are not content. The need to follow a bunch of things and to hold on to the rest is pathetic. Freedom of thought is literally non-existent. It is not going to be easy to even comprehend what you are reading here. Try getting away from the noise. Noise pounding at your ear drums and drilling into your brains.  'Calm before the storm' is so wrong. The din of silence is more likely to be heard in its wake. Get away from it all. Be one with yourself. Let go of your pretentious and sickly inhibitions. And then, maybe you'll hear it.

Of Clichéd Sayings

Proverbs and sayings are being used at an alarming rate. What is scary is that the entire meaning of that phrase itself becomes either overly dramatised or ignored all together. My good friend quoted one recently. “History repeats itself," she said. Now, what can you possibly make of this sentence? That something that occurred at least once before will occur again?

Two events may be similar in more ways than one, but are not the same, per say. Similar, yes, but in the most subtle of things. Things remind you of certain occurrences of the past. Sometimes, it’s all more than just a déjà vu. But are they repeated events, literally? Of course not. Two events are never the same. If that is so, then why do similar things keep happening? I’d say it’s because we let them happen so. We tend do the things in the most comfortable of ways that we are used to doing and thus, we ourselves lead these events to take place all over again. And we are so busy in this process that we don’t even realise doing so. It is only when the event has been done, that we shrug and say,”Yeah well, history repeats itself.” The irony.
