The Million Dollar Question.


Yesterday is a Mirage, Tomorrow is a lie. Living is only for today, the here and the now. Plans and dreams are as a distraction shielding us from the abyss of nothingness. Fate rests just beyond us while we keep changing positions to look for the brighter side. Not always does that become our reality. You try, and fight, realizing always too late that it’s just out of our reach, teasing, tantalizing. We think we know what we want, what we are but we don’t and there is always something hidden under the folds of flesh, deep within our heart and no one can dig that out. Not even us ourselves. It’s a secret, giving hints like feelings, outbursts of emotions to make its presence known but figuring that out is what mystics, Brahmins, Mayans have been trying to do since a hundred, a thousand years and that’s what we are made of. Fragments of the past, the present, the future threaded along in a beautiful tapestry, unfinished, just out of our imagination and what that full picture makes… That, is the Million Dollar Question.

Twenty. A body too young, A mind full of years. Nerds are cool; They make shit happen. "I would leave the cinema after the next-to-the-last-song, and the film would just go on forever. Isn't it wonderful?" - Selma, Dancer in the Dark. Don't take me too seriously; Even I don't.
