I remember a quote from “The war of the clones”:
“Attachment is forbidden. Possession is forbidden.”


And from “Revenge of the Sith”:
“The fear of loss is a path to the Dark Side.”
“Train yourself to let go of everything you are afraid to lose.”


Nothing is forever. No one is forever. If you care for someone - a human or a pet, that someone will walk out of your life, eventually and inevitably. And you will be hurt - eventually and inevitably. The only way to be safe from harm is to be safe from caring for anyone. And there will be no pain.


Of course there will be no love either.

I didn't say that the plan was flawless.

I had an overwhelming week. And as if everything else wasn't enough a couple of days ago a friend who's at the seaside posted that her cat somehow has slipped out of the house and was missing. The cat is blind. I check FB every half an hour for updates but no good news so far. And it got me thinking about all the pets I've lost, all the people and their dogs I used to see everytime we were out with Vincent. They're all gone now, some of the people too. Sometimes real life is just too...real. There's too much sadness in it, too much.

I can't stand "King Kong". I find the concept unacceptable. All I see is animal abuse and I can't tolerate the idea. I'd love a version in which King Kong smashes the city to pieces and makes it safe home to live happily ever after.

A few weeks ago I posted an entry on why 30STM still haven't announced an European tour. "Could it be for safety reasons? Could it be they are afraid to play in Europe?" 

I posted it only to delete it a couple of hours later. The idea seemed ridiculous. Many other bands were on tour; of course it was a ridiculous thought. Silly me.

And then Manchester happened...

As an atheist I don't believe that there is hell but the atrocities people do make me hope that there is - even if I am to go there too. It will be worth it as long as justice is served.

It turns out that the five stages of grief concept is not exclusively applicable to the loss of loved ones but to any unwanted crucial change that you're faced with and forced to accept without having any other option whatsoever, when you have to deal with the frustration of being cornered and the only way is to surrender. You know that fighting is futile but still you need to perform some act of defiance not so much for the sake of your ego but as a manifestation of the difference between humans and cattle. Upgrading to acceptance doesn't get the collar off your neck - you simply learn to wear it in style.

"Slave to the wage"... aren't we all?

I don't get people. And every time I try to I wish I haven't. "To know is to suffer." And yet I keep trying. Does that make a masochist?

You remember that joke about the pessimist and the optimist? The pessimist says "It can't get any worse than that" and the optimist says "It can, it can."

Yes, it can, and next week it will. Should I shoot myself now or now?
