Okay: go to Paris

check into a nice hotel, and my plan is I’m going to eat some fucking cheese and I’m gonna get drunk. ― Anthony Bourdain

Or in my case, check into a nice Airbnb, and my plan is I’m going to take some fucking good photos and I’m gonna get drunk 😉

My departure to Paris is approaching and I’m not ready yet. I haven’t yet researched where and when Fashion Week is going on. I hope to be lucky and catch something on the street. So this will be my last post before I leave for Paris. A lot of research and planning awaits me in the coming days.

For me…

a place unvisited is like unrequited love. A dull ache that—try as you might think it away, convince yourself that she wasn’t the right country for you—just won’t leave you in peace. — Eric Weiner

Sometimes I dream

… about being a good father and a good husband. And sometimes it feels really close. But then other times it seems silly like it would ruin my whole life. And it’s not just a fear of commitment or that I’m incapable of caring or loving because… I can. It’s just that, if I’m totally honest with myself I think I’d rather die knowing that I was really good at something. That I had excelled in some way than that I’d just been in a nice, caring relationship. Before Sunrise – Quotes

OK, well this was my thought…

50,000 years ago, there are not even a million people on the planet. 10,000 years ago, there’s, like, two million people on the planet. Now there’s between five and six billion people on the planet, right? Now, if we all have our own, like, individual, unique soul, right, where do they all come from? You know, are modern souls only a fraction of the original souls? ‘Cause if they are, that represents a 5,000 to 1 split of each soul in the last 50,000 years, which is, like, a blip in the Earth’s time. You know, so at best we’re like these tiny fractions of people, you know, walking
 I mean, is that why we’re so scattered? You know, is that why we’re all so specialized? – Before Sunrise Quotes

You know what drives me crazy?

It’s all these people talking about how great technology is, and how it saves all this time. But, what good is saved time, if nobody uses it? If it just turns into more busy work. You never hear somebody say, “With the time I’ve saved by using my word processor, I’m gonna go to a Zen monastery and hang out”. I mean, you never hear that. – Before Sunrise Quotes

If there’s any kind of magic in this world…

it must be in the attempt of understanding someone, sharing something. I know it’s almost impossible to succeed
 but who cares, really? The answer must be in the attempt. – Before Sunrise Quotes
