Is it possible, in final analysis, for one human being to achieve perfect understanding of another?

We can invest enormous time and energy in serious efforts to know another person, but in the end, how close can we come to that person’s essence? We convince ourselves that we know the other person well, but do we really know anything about anyone?

The Wind-up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami


comics v. dad

how it saddens me
that the fictitious felt more present and real
compared to what is alive.

I don’t remember, were we wild and young
All that’s faded into memory
I feel like somebody I don’t know
Are we really who we used to be
Am I really who I was

Lucky Now by Ryan Adams

Results by May Vary

When I was little, I thought the line “results may vary” had the word “by” in between the words “result” and “may”. Hence, “results by may vary”. That being said, for a few days, I thought the words “may vary” weren’t just two words, but also a name.

I always pictured May Vary as a secretary. Well, in terms of appearance, at least. With her long black tight skirt, her pink blouse, and her neatly tied blonde hair, it’s as if she’s very ready to carpe the damn diem. Her voice too. Damn. Her voice comparable (if not better than) to those alluring woman voices you hear on TV. Plus if you add a smile so blindingly bright, not only May Vary will seize the day with finesse, but also make everyone swoon while she’s at it.

How you see May Vary may not be the same as how I saw her. She could own a pair of glasses and never wear them, have long frizzy black hair, or even possess the will to kill, everything may or may not be the same.

I guess you could say that results may vary for the result of May Vary.
