Today has been tough.
I started the day with every muscle of my body willing to make it worth it. To make it a good day.
I quite thought I’d make it till 3 pm.
Then suddenly, out of nowhere, I got everything pushing on my nerves. Then suddenly I remembered each and everything that is not okay.
So I wanted to cry, and I decided to postpone it till I go back home.
Now, I’m at home, with all the right circumstances to cry, but I cannot. And it drives me crazy to realize it. But I think I’ve managed to suppress my feelings well enough that I cannot let them out anymore. And it scares me. If I continued like this I might as well blow up suddenly.

I remember now in mind the beautiful movie “The Pianist” based on the real story of Władysław Szpilman.
“Humanity seems doomed to do more evil than good. The greatest ideal on earth is human love.”
― Wilm Hosenfeld, The Pianist: The Extraordinary Story of One Man’s Survival in Warsaw, 1939–45
One of the movies that made me envy artists. Artists can beautifully express themselves. They have a very powerful weapon to fight with. I always admire artists and wish I could be one of them. May be it’s time? Who knows! 🙂
The thing about art that directly touches your soul, is that it’s sincere and authentic. You feel connected to the artist. You feel relevance.
