Kafka on the shore (again)

"That's how stories happen--with a turning point, an unexpected twist. There's only one kind of happiness, but misfortune comes in all shapes and sizes. It's like Tolstoy said. Happiness is an allegory, unhappiness a story"

from Kafka on the shore novel by Japanese author Haruki Murakami

Kafka on the shore

"Closing your eyes isn't going to change anything. Nothing's going to disappear just because you can't see what's going on. In fact, things will be even worse the next time you open your eyes. That's the kind of world we live in, Mr. Nakata. Keep your eyes wide open. Only a coward closes his eyes. Closing your eyes and plugging up your ears won't make time stand still."

from Kafka on the shore
novel by Japanese author Haruki Murakami / Translator could be Philip Gabriel (the name isn't mentioned in the edition i am reading so i can't tell for sure )

Today is one of those days.
I feel the need to hate every creature on the planet without any reason at all and the desire to kill anyone that talks to me.
A great day to be at work!

Before Sunset

I saw this movie yesterday for the first time, nice movie.
Again like the first part I envied the two strangers that got to wander around the city for the day speaking about any and everything
Of course aside from the fact that they fell in love and got parted for nine years but stayed in love though.
this goes under the "happens only in movies" statement huh?
