And If One Day

“When all by myself, I can think of all kinds of clever remarks, quick comebacks to what no one said, and flashes of witty sociability with nobody. But all of this vanishes when I face someone in the flesh: I lose my intelligence, I can no longer speak, and after half an hour I just feel tired. Talking to people makes me feel like sleeping. Only my ghostly and imaginary friends, only the conversations I have in my dreams, are genuinely real and substantial.” – Fernando Pessoa

Imagine my relief when I got to my blog tonight and found that I had 0 visitors. Although people commenting on a blog do have a bit of a ghostly quality and would not be too much of a bother.

New photo from the Curiosity Mars Rover just in. I would say that this object has a nice combination of organic curvature and geometric holes and tubes. The new alien move comes out in a few weeks, I am more than mildly interested.

The faith that some higher guardian is looking over us is most important to any dreamer. And since we can dream them up they are as real as anything else in this paper moon life is to us.

Cello Song   -Nick Drake

Strange face, with your eyes
So pale and sincere.
Underneath you know well
You have nothing to fear.
For the dreams that came to you when so young
Told of a life
Where spring is sprung.

You would seem so frail
In the cold of the night
When the armies of emotion
Go out to fight.
But while the earth sinks to its grave
You sail to the sky
On the crest of a wave.

So forget this cruel world
Where I belong
I’ll just sit and wait
And sing my song.
And if one day you should see me in the crowd
Lend a hand and lift me
To your place in the cloud.
