The Dark Knight


18-09-2016

Yday was International Batman Day. Away from all the comic book frenzy, here in a hospital, my friend's dad undergoes chemotherapy. My friend does her best to deal with everything that comes with it. Another friend of mine lost his dad and his pet dog recently. His battles oscillate between depression and alcoholism everyday. Then there are those, whose stories I do not know. Friends from broken homes, with broken hearts, bartering their soul everyday for anything to feel alive again. Yday was International Batman Day. And this I dedicate to my brave friends.To the Dark Knight in them. To that silent resilient spirit who guards the dark street corners of the Gotham cities within all of us.

Worn out Xeroxes

The irony of memory is that it is created from scratch with each recall. Hastily slapped together from sensory recollections. Eventually your memory becomes a mere caricature, a glorified shadow of the real thing. And the greater irony is that you'll never know when that happens.

Today the psychologist told me that I have dysthymia. A mild form of depression. 

Even if you sorta-kinda know you might have the thing, it's still a strange feeling when your doc actually diagnoses you of depression. But then it's also a relief. Now you know what you gotta deal with and go about your life. You aren't damaged. You've just made a risk assessment and are now improving your system's mainframe.

You gotta know your demons before you battle them.

The City and Us





Sometimes we leave so many finger prints on a city that it simply becomes a part of who we are.

Shared Skies


At the world's end,
When our shared skies meet,
I'll embrace you with the infinite,
And all of time, will be ours.

In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.

Kudoclasm





"The best fantasy is written in the language of dreams. It is alive as dreams are alive, more real than real ... for a moment at least ... that long magic moment before we wake."

There exists, for everyone, a sentence - a series of words - that has the power to destroy you. Another sentence exists, another series of words, that could heal you. If you're lucky you will get the second, but you can be certain of getting the first.”
― Philip K. Dick

Keta



“People think dreams aren't real just because they aren't made of matter, of particles. Dreams are real. But they are made of viewpoints, of images, of memories and puns and lost hopes.”
― Neil Gaiman

Klexos


“Maybe we should think of memory itself as a work of art—and a work of art is never finished, only abandoned.”
