Sky

I envy the artist or filmmaker who fleshes out imagination, and presents it in two or three dimensions. Some people can relate to the characters. To all others, it’s as vague as the sky – an illusion to keep imagination engaged.

The root of all disappointment in the world is that we derive comfort from what is familiar. We want the external world to reflect us, as we see ourselves.

The sky is an empty space when it does not respond. It is populated with gods, when our prayers are answered. Do we even know the residential address of gods?

“It’s better to look at the sky than live there. Such an empty place; so vague. Just a country where the thunder goes.” 

― Truman Capote, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Three Stories
