Only in death shall I find solace for death is the only certain and absolute truth in this uncertain world.
I don’t like wars. Why, you ask? Because wars bring death to the defeated and the victors’ injuries and ailments become an enduring consequence of the conflicts and besides, who will mend the other wound, the wound of losing someone?
I like to take photographs. You know, to freeze memories in time so that I can relieve them whenever I want to. My favourite subjects are rail roads and staircases.…
"One day a crazy looking homeless guy came to the door, and we were about to close the door on him, but my mother saw him and shouted: ‘Hey Eugene!’ She knew his name! Then she ran around the kitchen putting all sorts of food into tupperware, and brought it out to him. After he left, we asked my mom why she gave him so much food. She told us: ‘You never know how Jesus is going to look when he shows up.’ She was always saying that— it was a spiritual thing. Then you know what happened? Two months later, that same man showed up on the door step, clean shaven, and wearing a suit. And he had an envelope with money for my mother. ‘Ms. Rosa always believed in me,’ he said. I’ll never forget it! Eugene was his name."

Why do we lie to ourselves all the time? We keep on telling ourselves-we must do good in exams, we must be accepted at a reputed university, we must get a good job, we need a big house and a lot of other bullshit. We never thougt of these things when we were kids. Happiness doesnt depend on these superficial substances. All that we need to be happy is already with us. A beautiful partner, lovely kids, friends with whom we can share a drink at the local pub, a humble abode and a warm bed. Most of us are fortunate enough to have all these but still we are running in a rat race and for what? Stop lying to yourself. You are already happy and if not then you have all the ingredienta to be happy. Stop doing what the world wants you to and become what tou want to be.
Do not be responsible in your life. Be spontaneous and impulsive. Life is too small to take everything seriously. We are young, wild and free. Life should not be about regrets of not having done something rather it should be an accumulation of cherished memories. After all we have only one life to live. So why not live it on our own terms, why always do what others want us to? Why be a son or father or daughter or wife or husband? Why not just you? Exactly the way you want to be. Paint if you want to paint or sing or write or sculpt or whatever that brings you peace and tranquility. This is your life, live it for yourself and not others. Happy living people
