The Means and The Ends

Love forever love is free/ Let's turn forever you and me/ Windmill, windmill for the land/ Is everybody in?  (Gorillaz - "Windmill Song")

Love forever love is free/ Let's turn forever you and me/ Windmill, windmill for the land/ Is everybody in? (Gorillaz - "Windmill Song")

I went past this windmill on numerous occasions. On my way to school, on my way back from school, going for walks or on my morning jogs.

People cross the bridge, coming and going places. Maybe they sometimes gaze at the clock by the bridge and wish they could go faster so they could arrive on time. They seldom don’t even take notice of its spinning arms, don’t bother looking. I know I often times didn’t. And yet it was there. The bridge and the windmill were always my „means” of getting to different places. Always the means, never the ends of my action. And that just makes me think of how many „lonely windmills” we may all be missing every day…

When you are thousands of kilometers away from everything you call your own, your room becomes the shrine of everything you are and everything that means something to you. ... Mai mult

History Repeating

As I watched The Hague drift away, I tried to provide myself with a conclusion that would serve as a closure for the first stage of my experience. I don’t know if I found it; what I know for sure is that I am going to keep hoping and acting for this world’s change for the better, even if I will only be able to induce an infinitesimally small change. It would be still a place to start. And that is the best I can possibly do. ... Mai mult
