42. Quote a song that sums up your year:

The sun rises slowly
On another day
The eastern sky grows
Winter in water colours
Shades of grey

Something holds me
Holds me hypnotized

I stare at the window
Stare at the window
Waiting for the day
To go
Winter in water colours
Shades of grey


Brain: an apparatus with which we think we think.

Ambrose Bierce
