Still breathing. Turned 48 last week. Quite an achievement, yet so long to go still, probably, till I'm finally rid of living.
Yeah? Finished exploring the cool stuff ? Learnt enough french to savour the whole of Ferré, Brassens, Brel, Barbara, Lapointe and Trenet ? Been through all ranges of poetry yet ? Finished investigating the social, cognitive, neuronal, cultural causes for mankind's eternal returns to "never again" fascisms ? Finished exploring Carné, Renoir, Scola, and all artistic esthetisations of human condition ? Seen the whole of magical realism from Europe, Asia, America ? Studied the resilience of humans in totalitarian regimes, through studies and testimonies ? Finished your Sartre, Goffman, Foucault, Camus, Bourdieu, and all these lateral looks on society ? Done all you could already to help out those who, in a much worse practical situation than you, locally or abroad, have a genuine will to live that is being wasted ?
Feel that you have too much time ahead ?
