Random Things, Before and After

May 26, 2010

First random thing, a poem:

Desert Eve

born of a cactus rib
tongue like a needle
that first man stood
no chance beneath your
pitiless glare
no apple        this time
                                        a prickly pear


A couple of quotes I came across yesterday and today, which bring me back time and again to the final episode of Lost:

“By the truth we are undone. Life is a dream. ‘Tis waking that kills us.” — Virginia Woolf


“He felt that his whole life was some kind of dream and he sometimes wondered whose it was and whether they were enjoying it.” — Douglas Adams

And, yeah, I cried. The Lost death music, it creates such a beautiful sadness inside.

Before and After, amusing differences in one month:

One gets taller, one gets shorter.
