The Bench

The Bench

By | December 5, 2013 at 1:32 pm | No comments

Two old people sitting on a bench at the park. Fall foliage surrounding them. Like a womb. Hands resting on each other. Not a word spoken, only the chit chat of autumn birds and the hush of an occasional wind. A lot of dark reds, shiny browns, contrasting their grey flannels and...

Falling into place…

First, I waited a long time, then I choose to get lost in my mind, among my thoughts. At least imagining it was a choice was tranquilizing. Between different processes of decision making in my mind, I experienced pauses. Otherwise I’m clear, aren’t I? Usually transparent and...

Record Store Day Playlist – A brief personal voyage in music history

By | April 16, 2011 at 2:19 pm | No comments

Record stores played and important role in our youth. We gathered, we shared, we demanded. A feeling now lost in the clusters of huge megastores. Like many other things, record stores no longer are personal. Here is something very personal though... A private visit to my...

One Cool Piece

This is not an article about an anime. And  no, this is not about life either. I'm just reminiscing about old memories. There are some pieces you start writing without knowing what will come up. Call me lazy. Call me disorganized. Call me irresponsible. That's how it will be....

I need closure. I need an end. I, I, I, I, yes, this is about me. Otherwise I'll lose it. I need to block the voices. Every month, there is a stupid development in the news about Hrant. In his life, everyday, there were news from somewhere that killed him. He yelled many times...

This is an awful morning. I worry about you. I don't know why though. You make it clear there's nothing wrong. Isn't that an obvious reason why I should. Distance is a two-way game. And it's a motherfucking game, that is what it is. When it is about abstracts, the dreams are...

Είπες· «Θα πάγω σ' άλλη γή, θα πάγω σ' άλλη θάλασσα, Μια πόλις άλλη θα βρεθεί καλλίτερη από αυτή. Κάθε προσπάθεια μου μια καταδίκη είναι γραφτή· κ' είν' η...
