Oddly quiet

The city is oddly quiet this morning.  So oddly quiet it is ominous.  Maybe, reading Murakami makes it seem so.

Thick black clouds at sunset

Sunset arrived.  Then thick black clouds.  I sat in the dark reading Murakami on my iPhone.

Now that I think about it, the day was destined to end this way and night commence.

Events and their location

A man stands on his balcony in the building across the street.  He brushes his teeth.  Why do I care to write about it?  I blame Murakami.  Small events take on significance.

In what world did I awake today?

The big city is alright.  But sometimes, you miss living out in the country where you can see all those stars glittering in a moonless sky.

I suppose that is like missing the love of your life who you have not seen all these thousands of days.

It all comes down to choices and the things you can never have back.

Worked on this week’s fantasy football lineup after I woke this morning.  Then ordered the latest Murakami novel, 1Q84, and downloaded it to the Kindle.  After reading the first couple of pages, it seems like precisely the right thing to have done just before sunrise.

The new Murakami novel

The new Murakami goes on sale tomorrow.  Shall I walk to the bookstore and buy the hardback or read the eBook?

Today, the thin crescent moon in the eastern sky has faded away at dawn; I’ll read some Hemingway this afternoon.

Fast lane

You are reading a one good book per day on your new iPhone. You are in the fast lane.

On blogging part 1000

I miss blogging–a lot. But the only way I think I can do it henceforth is by doing it on my iPhone. A pity, since I can’t say much because of my typing skills.

Yet one feels the need to babble. And who knows, I might just get better at thumb typing–and babbling too.

Smitten again

She’s young and pretty with long auburn hair and writing on a yellow legal tablet as if she’s writing a poem.

At least, that’s what I’m hoping she’s doing. Then I’d be totally smitten.
