win won won

"Depression is when you can't feel at all. Anxiety is when you feel too much. 
Having both is a constant war within your own mind. 
Having both means never winning."

Praise the Idle

" Leisure is essential to civilization, and in former times leisure for the few was only rendered possible by the labors of the many. But their labors were valuable, not because work is good, but because leisure is good."

Bertrand Russell, In Praise of Idleness

att dö en smula

Ibland måste man dö litet för att återuppstå

They are beyond me, are fishes.
I stand at the pale of my being
And look beyond, and see
Fish, in the outerwards,
As one stands on a bank and looks in.

I have waited with a long rod
And suddenly pulled a gold-and-greenish, lucent fish from below,
And had him fly lika a halo round my head,
Lunging in the line on the air.

Unhooked his gorping, water-horny mouth,
And seen his horror-tilted eye,
His red-gold, water-precious, mirror-flat, bright eye;
And felt him beat in my hand, with his mucuos, leaping life-throb.

And my heart accused itself,
Thinking: I am not the measure of creation.
This is beyond me, this fish.
His God stands outside my God.

And the gold-and-green pure lacquer-mucous comes off in my hand,
And the red-gold mirror-eye stares and dies,
And the water-suave contour dims.

But not before I have had to know
He was born in front of my sunrise,
Before my day.
He outstarts me.
And I, a many-fingered horror of daylight to him,
Have made him die.

With their gold-red eyes, and green-pure gleam, and under-gold,
And their pre-world loneliness,
And more than lovelessness,
And white flesh;
They move in other circles.

Water wayfarers.

Att leva är att ta ställning. Jag hatar de likgiltiga.
