Closing my summer 2014. Goodbye to complicated August, Hello to my favorite season of the year, Autumn! "Talent can be a nice thing to have sometimes. You look good, attract attention, and if you’re lucky, you make some money. Women flock to you. In that sense, having talent’s preferable to having none. But talent only functions when it’s supported by a tough, unyielding physical and mental focus. All it takes is one screw in your brain to come loose and fall off, or some connection in your body to break down, and your concentration vanishes, like the dew at dawn."                                       "Talent might be ephemeral, and they aren’t many people who can susitain it their whole lives. But talent makes a huge spiritual leap possible. It’s an almost universal, independent phenomenon that transcends the individual." 
- Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage, Haruki Murakami

Capital movements may respond to real causes, including wars and revolutions, technical innovations and the opening of new markets and new sources of raw materials, and to changes in the relationship between the growth rates in different countries, as well as to changes in monetary policy and fiscal policy.

Laughing loudly at the folly of life. 
Life, you know what I am not going to let you destroy. I’m going to live as how it’s for me.

The death of cicada
I’m sorry to have only thought that you were just too noisy. You had your reason to sing, after 17-years of suffering underground as a nymph.

"What an artist is trying to do for people is bring them closer to something, because of course art is about sharing. You wouldn’t be an artist unless you wanted to share an experience, a thought." - David Hockney
