100th Post: Elementary Calculus

There might be a day when I would go back to the comforts of routine, of newspaper stains on my fingers every morning, paydays, taxes, visits to the dentist, monthly bills; a day when I might go back to the monotony of lists and schedules.

There might be a day when I would I would neatly arrange books and DVDs on a shelf, by author and genre; a day when I would put old notebooks into neat labeled boxes and then tie the boxes with a string; a day when I would only remember things I want to remember.

There might be a day when I would buy a suitcase that I would fill with sighs and hopes, that I would abandon in a train, leaving it trapped between the tyranny of clocks and railways.

There might be a day when I would forget to dream while I am awake.

But today isn't that day. And tomorrow is luckily just a word.

@Metamorphosis: Because things can be easy and difficult at the same time. And I am fond of oxymorons.

@Lance: I had to Wiki Kris Kristofferson. I'm afraid I have to resort to more entries like these in the following days, to avoid unnecessary emo-ness.

@geek: thanks. calculus is still calculus, i will remember that.

Victor Gregor said...

@Lance: Oh no, no, you don't want me to go turbo emo.

@Nyl: I need divine intervention. Unfortunately, I am not Catholic.

the geek said...

you dont need to be a Catholic for divine intervention.;)

line of flight said...

you also don't need to be divine for Catholic intervention.

Victor Gregor said...

@geek and lance: actually, there was divine intervention. well, sort of. in the form of a movie I saw again recently on TV. :D
