Cool cosmic laws

There’s never enough time to do all the nothing you want

I got so many ‘nothings’ on my list, that I decided to drop them all (too many nothings aren’t so healthy), and just rest. You may call it ‘being lazy’, but in my eyes – I have achieved a lot. “Everybody seems to think I’m lazy I don’t mind, I think they’re crazy.

Dream up a book on Monday, publish it on Friday…

Where are you going on vacation?” “Nowhere. I’m going to read. I love reading.  Marjane Satrapi I have some news to share. My Goodread’s challenge for 2019 is complete. That means I’m leaving Goodreads for a while. I’m planning to spend all my free time writing and living (= having fun). It’s summer, after all! 💃😜 I ordered a promotional video for Dulcinea and The Death Code (length – 1 min),...

The Worms

inspired by Charles Bukowski “Burning in water. Drowning in flame” I sit among the worms
 Telling myself: this world is upside down
 And tomorrow When I wake up Everything that stinks and crawls inside of my head Will die. I sit and wait. My heart is hanging from the mouth for so long It has forgotten how to behave when the hunger begins and the sorrow eats you up. Just disturbing, you...
