[ 4 min read ] Diary of an artist, Wednesday, June 26, 2019 #711 (countdown) - Woke up 5:00 am Yesterday I was greatly surprised by an e-mail from a certain London based art consultancy. I will not reveal, at this point, which agency and any other details of that... Continue reading

[ 4 min read ] Diary of an artist, Tuesday, June 25, 2019 #712 (countdown) - Woke up 4:00 am My new discovery — Max Richter’s music. I knew him before, but I don’t think I ever listened to more than a couple of his pieces. Recently I’ve listened to more pieces... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] Nobody can tell me whether my philosophy is right or wrong. Nobody can tell me that what I write is worth something and therefore I should keep on writing, or to the contrary, that it is a complete crap and therefore I should stop. Why?... Continue reading

[ 5 min read ] Diary of an artist, Sunday, June 23, 2019 #713 (countdown) - Woke up 4:30 am On Friday I saw two biggest snails so far in my life. I guess, because I don’t remember if in my 42 years on this planet I had ever seen... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] So what’s the best way to live in this world? Should we, as many believe and preach in their lofty speeches, hope that something which wasn’t possible in the tens of thousands of years our species (the modern homo sapiens) were on this planet, will... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] Those lunatics (I’ve been writing recently about them) they don’t want to acknowledge that we (human beings) are not as good as we like to portray ourselves in our inspirational, uplifting speeches about us and in tear-jerkering stories about us we tell ourselves over and...

[ 2 min read ] It’s hard to have a positive outlook on the current state of humanity (world) when one knows that we are not living up to a certain ideal, certain dreamed-up vision of our species. On the one hand you see all the things that should never... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] We will never realize this beautiful vision of the world coming together and our species being the species driven entirely by such nice things as goodness, love, kindness, empathy. Words which would be completely empty without such bad things as evil, anger, hatred, revenge, etc.... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] The sooner we’ll come to terms with it, the sooner we’ll stop being so disappointed with us as a species. We live in an era where many human beings (especially educated, middle class people, and our leaders) believe that it is possible to change who... Continue reading

[ 4 min read ] For failed marriages to exist we need to believe that marriages can fail. And that’s what most of us believe. I too, until recently, was in that overwhelming majority of people who believe that marriages can fail. When does a marriage fail? According to the... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] Most young adults, after having received career advice from well-meaning adults, want to figure out their future career in their late teenage years or early 20s. In other words, they try to find the answer to that question they’d been asked so many times, which... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] If you were free you would change your career whenever you wanted (you wouldn’t give a damn what others think or expect from you) you would have your own definitions (you wouldn’t be bound by the conventional understanding of most things) you would pick /... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] To me he wasn’t. And yet he wrote this bullshit. Why it is bullshit I wrote in my recent piece called Bitching about the society, the way it works, is like bitching about water being wet or your lawn being green. Yes, I know, Dickens.... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] You don’t have to decide your future. You’re supposed to decide your future, but you don’t have to do it. It’s expected from you (culturally) that you decide your future, but you don’t have to do it. Certain people wish you decided your future (because... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] Saying that the society is wrong is like saying that the lawn is wrong about being green. When it gets enough water it is green. It just is. Many writers, artists and thinkers (Charles Dickens, I discovered recently) complained about the society. Dickens thought there... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] Recently our son’s coach said something to him which wasn’t well thought out (was neither fair, nor prudent). It wasn’t anything indecent though. Of course, as parents we didn’t like that, and we knew that what the man said affected our son. The thing is... Continue reading

[ 4 min read ] Of course, I can always say This person did something he or she shouldn’t have done. Nobody should have done it. But this person did it. But people do it. So what’s the point? I guess it’s better to expect that people will say and... Continue reading

[ 4 min read ] I’m of the opinion that people who believe that certain things shouldn’t happen are among the most frustrated, bitter, angry, unhappy people among us. Unfortunately we have many of them. I guess the majority is like that. They are usually (or 100 percent of the... Continue reading

[ 5 min read ] I wrote a lot about regret, and I still find it nonsensical (the way most people understand it and what they think the reality would have been or would be), but I think there is one thing left — something I didn’t write about yet and which... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] I don’t care if what I do is viewed as prestigious or lucrative. People usually care a lot about that. Especially those who had been raised in a middle class household with parents who graduated from college and have such careers. That’s why it’s unthinkable... Continue reading

[ 4 min read ] Diary of an artist, Tuesday, June 4, 2019 #716 (countdown) - Woke up 4:40 am Yesterday I sold an old (I guess it was 20 years old, or even more) heavy duty paper punch for $25. When my wife heard it she was shocked. She... Continue reading

[ 4 min read ] A person who caused a car accident in which someone else (one of his or her relatives or friends or acquaintances, or a stranger) was killed, will most probably forever beat himself or herself up for this. He or she will think Had I done... Continue reading

[ 4 min read ] Recently a gal named Damini (from India) turned to me for help. She wrote: I am suffering from severe clinical depression. I am 21 and haven’t started with graduation yet. I don’t feel interested in this life anymore. Nothing makes me happy. I read your... Continue reading
