/ you know that crave you feel for travel? / or that homesick feeling you have for a place you’ve never been? / most languages dont have a word for it but germans do. / “fernweh”…the german word for the urge to go somewhere you’ve never been before but for which you have an unexplainable desire to experience and connect with
/ pretty much the feeling i get every time i come to this place / which reminds me, in a very small scale resemblance, those italian and greek coastline villages, like Manarola, Positano, Santorini or Mykonos

/ the japanese have a curious untranslatable term”wabi-sabi” (which also sounds like that tasty green thingy we love to eat with sushi), which is more of a concept than anything else, and that would translate as “a way of living that focuses on finding beauty within the imperfections of life and accepting peacefully the natural cycle of growth and decay” / a state of harmony that grows from acceptance, not from what we think we’d prefer but from what our common sense id’s as naturally fitting
/ so when i see a 3D raccoon on a three story building, made of broken auto spares and filled with plants, i see a “wabi-sabi” moment that would be so fulfilling to find more often by who’s skills perfectly match the language and needs we have towards todays urban view

/ this could be the last time i have to wait. but i dont know what im waiting for.
/ my punishment i suppose. i often say no. i refused to do my duty. or for what most think is my duty. and for that i feel punished. ill keep feeling punished… i have no doubt.

/ i am in disgrace, which is the… opposite of grace.
/ i ought to be terrified, but i feel… serene.
/ and there’s a kind of hope it seems. even in futility.
/ i try to make things better to myself. change the world, even just a little bit. even just if… i believe it will.
