The Morning After

I can look upon young people totally in the grip of Schopenhauer’s Will to Reproduce and all the beautiful delusions that fosters with some detachment now. At times I read what they write about heterosexual relationships and sex in their blogs. So focused and so oblivious to the ridiculous tragedy of it all. I feel sort of sorry for them. It is not as if I cannot remember what that is like.

Take this young man for example. He was obviously totally exhausted from the previous night. He went into the clinch here like a boxer, just to rest a bit in the morning sun in Plaza Cívica before he had to go to work.

    If we were not all so interested in ourselves, life would be so uninteresting that none of us would be able to endure it.

    With time and experience, we can tell more and more about the content of an image. Life teach us the significance of attitude & behavior issued themselves from our subconscious.
