Another Dream

A snow leopard leapt at us from among the trees. Leaves and twigs crackling under our soles. I was watching the cat in front of me, ready to bounce. Fascinated. You stepped back. I got out of the trance and stopped you. I grabbed your arm. "Don't move," I said. Fear transpired through your skin. "Breathe." Take a deep breath and let it out slowly, the leopard calming down, walking between us, less interested in the prey. And then I saw it, the cub. Right in front of us, a cute fluff of a beast in the making. "She was defending her baby," I said, and then it all made sense.

meanwhile, awake, I am still waiting for things to make sense.

Punct si de la capat

S-a mai încheiat un capitol. Scurt și cuprinzător. Nici măcar nu știu cine a pus punctul. Pe i nu l-a pus nimeni.

The Buddha said that suffering was caused by desire, we'd learned, and that the cessation of desire meant the cessation of suffering. When you stopped wishing things wouldn't fall apart, you'd stop suffering when they did.

You've made me take a few steps back, back down, become less than myself. Why do you need to crop my wings? As usual, I fly too high for those around me. As usual, I want what I cannot have. My thirst for life is perceived as aggressive. I do not understand. What's wrong with wanting to live now instead of tomorrow?

They walked along, two continents of experience and feeling, unable to communicate.

I'd rather take your hand and go along with you on this sinuous path that we don't know where it leads or even if it leads anywhere than be alone on my straight and safe way.
And I think this may as well be the definition of love.

Droll thing life is—that mysterious arrangement of merciless logic for a futile purpose. The most you can hope from it is some knowledge of yourself—that comes too late—a crop of unextinguishable regrets.
Joseph Conrad
