Why write this blog

My photo
It is a way of giving my other self, my unconscious and perhaps artistic self, a way of expressing itself, and thereby helping me working things out. It is somewhat cathartic in a positive way. :)

New Day, New Dawn, New ...


All this life is such a fleeting moment in time
All but a moment of awareness in which we seemingly live outside time and space
All that there is ever left are minutes of you, imprinted in pictures and movies
All there can be are memories that live on on the mind of others that shared those moments with you

Carpe diem we're told
Seize the day
Chase your dreams
Live for the moment
How exactly are we supposed to do this?
Being completely reckless and irresponsible?
Enjoy your moments, for happiness is only ever found at spaces of time
But how to get those moments?
Does it involve a lot of alcohol?

Is satisfaction looking back and knowing that you have had more enjoyable times than boredom ones?

If the answer is no, what then?
What if it's too late?

Do you change the future to correct the past...?

se descobrires que a satisfação não se obtem por fazeres coisas passas a ficar quieto, sabendo que enquanto as fizeste ganhaste conhecimento, experiencia e outras coisas, boas ou más mas ganhaste. No entanto, se chegares à conclusão que aproveitar o dia implica fazer coisas, a opção inversa (de ficar quieto) pode vir a ser muito frustrante por teres perdido tempo a não fazer nada!
Faz sentido?!

Er... no, and yes, kind of, the second part, I'm not sure really...
