You bring out the worst in me

Some people bring out the best in you (video by Gladys Knight). For some people, you want to be a better man (video by Paolo Nutini). For some people, you'll never be good enough (video by Citizen Soldier). Sometimes, people bring out the worst in you (see video below). Recently, I met her. This also explains my recent blog: How can something be so right AND so...

The true (wo)man wants two things: danger and play.

Recently, I noticed an intriguing quote by Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900): “The true man wants two things: danger and play. For that reason he wants woman, as the most dangerous plaything."

Each role has a different functionality. What are the odds of finding such a combination of roles? Actually, these odds are surprisingly slim. The best odds are about finding a lover...

I’m drowning in my nostalgia

Last Saturday, these words came to me as inspiration: I'm drifting on my melancholia. I suppose my mind made up a paraphrase of a song line from David Sylvian's 1984 album Brilliant Trees: "I'm drowning in my nostalgia". I love that song. My inspiration was (most likely) related to another song: Tu me manques (I miss you) by the French/German singer-songwriter...
