    On guard... Few years back,

    I was going through a bad phase. Had to deal with a lot of negativity and manipulative people. There was a lot of stress too. Developed medical problems. I wasn't mature then. I had innocence in me and it was manipulated and toyed with. I felt like a helpless child in the adult...

    I live in a world where common sense is not

    so common anymore; I like to think things through and decide for myself what is the best for me to succeed in my life. I am an innovator, and I wish to pursue all of my goals to their fullest potential, and in doing that, inspire others to do the same.

    At the end of life a conscious life form in a

    paradigm of power and monopolized greed may ask one's self, "how could it all be this vain?" A life amounted to nothing more than a goal's toil or toiling for another's goal, or the paradigm's goal. Does this truly matter at the last gasp? Do the materialistic embellishments of...

    thinking will not lessen today's trouble

    but it will take away tomorrow's peace. But I still keep on thinking and it makes me look 5 years older than what I am.

    How to love? When you are fiercely protective

    I think the descriptions "weird" "mad" "odd"

    "crazy" are bandied about far too much-usually by people who have strived their entire life to achieve their ideal of "normality" without realising that no one knows what the hell normality is anymore. I've been lucky enough to work with the Great British Public for a lifetime...

    I overthink everything,

    We have slipped into the lonesome night now.

    But it's not dark enough for me yet. I can still feel a little ounce of light within the air. It's just not black enough. Not cold enough. I can feel the blackness submerging slowly, I can feel the pain creeping upon the lungs of the night. I can hear it's suffocating gasp as...

    How incredible the human mind can be.

    It can use small pieces of evidence available and reconstruct something meaningful. Perhaps it would be an exaggeration in comparing this to inferential statistics where actual and retrospective information available provides the basis that allows to infer a result or meaning...

    Events. That's what apparently everything is

    looking for in their lifes. We want adventure, emotions, thrills. I don't want events. I love uneventful days. Because I fear events. What are events? The unexpected death or sickness or someone you care about. A catastrophe. An accident. And because if we really have learnt...

    I don't feel as if I'll wake up 10-20 years from now and say "where has time gone?" I think my eyes will be wide open for the rest of my life and that's what scares me. I feel like every decision I make now is very important no matter how big or small. But I'm constantly second...

    I'm always thinking, mostly about my life.

    Where I will end up, if I will be happy with my life. If I've made the wrong/right choices, how they will impact me. It's never ending, my mind just keeps going. I prefer it this way. Although it keeps me up at night lol.

    BLACK & WHITE PHOTOGRAPHS.
