it's that time of the year again...

... where Les Fleurs du Mal makes its appearance on my nightstand.
(that's a lie. I'm reading Campbell's "The Hero with a Thousand Faces"
and every word I read makes me feel less alone.)
but the point is
I think I need to say first
I do not seek death
I am not suicidal, I don't think
(I like to imagine just how exactly I should cut the vein
to draw the most amount of blood in the shortest span of time
but that's intellectual exercise)
but the point is
should a double-decker bus kill me tomorrow
considering the scheme of things
well
I don't think I'd mind so much
I'm not afraid of dying
anytime will do, I suppose.

Patrick & Jack in Adventureland: Frozen in Time

People live and die; they grow old, suffer, learn, lose. Sometimes they find happiness and sense, and then finally come to pass. Their feelings are as intense as they are volatile. But something carries on just the same, reaching across time and light and space, emerging unscathed through the eras, immortal as long as there is life and other people ready to listen and understand.

This is what Frozen in Time is all about, really.

Words by mazaher, drawing by me.

(((May the road rise to meet you,
may the wind be always at your back.
may the sun shine warm upon your face.
Thank you, friend.)))
