Things


I always thought the noises inside conch shells are voices of spirits trapped inside and cawing crows, ancestors paying visits. Clouds became grounds for castles and air carried whispers from time immemorial. There were thunder and lightning because gods were in battle and rain was celestial tear stops (or god taking a shower). When I look back, what sounded ridiculous is what made me human.

We imagine. We’re human.

  7. I am always conflicted by what I would like to see or experience and what common sense tells me is actually out there. In ordinary states of mind, the world can seem to banal. In meditative states, a more poetic interpretation becomes possible. Which is real? which is not?

    1. It’s always a struggle trying to make sense of things. Your mind tells you something, experience another. Maybe that’s why they say we create our own realities.
