no medicine

the writing has got stuck again. to unstick it, i moved furniture in my room. now it looks even more crazy. in the process i discovered a lost mug. it must have felt very sad behind the armchair. and why did ronald barthes have to write so engagingly and unquotably?

a song for the end

the little courageous blue-tit unfreezing the hoary branch by his song, melodious beyond the city noises. i forget to watch my step upon slippery salted streets and i fall deeper, further into the snowdrifts, outside the range of thaw.

Tolkīns Silmariliona – Ainulindalē Ainuru mūzika (turpinājums) Tad runāja Ilūvatars, sacīdams: „Vareni ir ainuri, un Melkors starp viņiem tas varenākais; bet lai viņš un visi zinātu, ka es esmu Ilūvatars, tad visu, ko esat dziedājuši, es darīšu taustāmu, lai jūs redzētu savu darbu augļus.
