Giants Playground

It is another world. At least unfamiliar. Colors, landscape, shapes, weather. Everything is different than usual. It hasn’t really started yet.

“It’s a combination of factors,” you said and I turned away because I knew it for a fact that what was coming was a series of well structured statements most of which would turn out to be untrue. Not lies though. I never assumed you would lie. I began to admire the clothes on the …

it was and end-of-summer sort of question. that is not to say that it had to be necessarily posed at the end of the summer. the two things, in this particular case, simply coincided. it had been a long ride. scattered with expertly picked arguments born out of adoration, nascent distrust swiftly translating itself into …

“So, can you commit?” “Sure, I can commit.” “So, how do you commit?” “I brush my teeth every day.” “Is that a commitment?” “Best you’ll ever have.” “How?” “Leap of faith.” “What?” “You assume there’s a tomorrow.” “Ah. Ok.” “See?”

two-thirds

I roam the streets and take candid photographs of people close up so I can see their faces clearly. I am putting together a collection of facial expressions.

aphasia?

That strangely comforting feeling of losing words. Not missing them, though. They may be somewhere around, they just refuse to take any comprehensible form or shape.
