Beauty

Some people think if something is beautiful it has to become known by all, but is that really necessary?

Some beauty has been ruined precisely because it became known by many.

To Err is...

La boule de feu by Bernard Faucon


To err is the privilege of youth.
So why does Icarus have to die?

Before and After

Before it seemed I always wanted to be someone else. I've given that all up. Now I'm being myself 24/7. I still suffer, but it's a more pleasant kind of suffering. XD

Trickery

There's no use pretending because people are endowed with such an amazing innate intelligence that they'll always see through you. However, it is those same people who are willing to be deceived and reinforce their warped perceptions.  You can never be tricked by others. You always trick yourself.

Moon Desert

A short, melancholic piece of music that I composed sometime ago.
It's meant to be played on loop so has no clear ending.

So unfortunate

The other day I came across a website run by a British person teaching English in Japan.

On one article I spotted a comment left by a Japanese woman which I found was rather funny, although it was very unfortunate for the woman.

She was asking about the meaning and correct usage of the phrase "How's it going?"
It appears that she actually does understand its meaning, but didn't know how to respond to it when the question was posed to her during a chit-chat with a Canadian man.

The conversation (as it appears in her comment) was as follows:

The Canadian Man "Hows it going?"
The Japanese Woman "I'm coming."
The Canadian Man "Take your time. I'm busy. I just asked how's it going."

After this she writes, "What did he mean by it? I thought he was asking me about my current situation, but was I wrong? Please enlighten me."

When I read that, I was like "OH. MY. GOD."

Poor woman. I felt so embarrassed for her.
