旅に病で / 夢は枯野を / かけ廻る
tabi ni yande / yume wa kareno wo / kake-meguru
Sick on a journey, / my dreams wander / the withered fields.

Matsuo Bashô (松尾芭蕉) 

“I don’t know that we are actually human at this point, those of us who are like most of us, who grew up with TV and movies and now the Internet. If we are betrayed, we know the words to say; when a loved one dies, we know the words to say. If we want to play the stud or the smart-ass or the fool, we know the words to say. We are all working from the same dog-eared script.
It’s a very difficult era in which to be a person, just a real, actual person, instead of a collection of personality traits selected from an endless Automat of characters.
And if all of us are play-acting, there can be no such thing as a soul mate because we don’t have genuine souls.
It had gotten to the point where it seemed like nothing matters, because I’m not a real person and neither is anyone else.”
Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl (via lovinglifeandlaughter)

I know who I am. And after all these years, there’s a victory in that.
