Now is the past.


think about this:

The moment you started reading this text is no longer the present, that moment belongs to the past.

The present is a razor-thin line you can only enjoy now, but, unfortunately now is the past.

Neighborhood watch.
Caves inhabited by stalking people, people who look at you through the windows and wonder what you will be doing, always the danger of the stranger, the stranger who strays. A constant look on your neck does not let you relax, the neighbors look and question you, the feeling of community is stronger than the look of the individual, the walker is alone and alone are each of those who look.

“Style is the answer to everything.
A fresh way to approach a dull or dangerous thing
To do a dull thing with style is preferable to doing a dangerous thing without it
To do a dangerous thing with style is what I call art

Bullfighting can be an art
Boxing can be an art
Loving can be an art
Opening a can of sardines can be an art

Not many have style
Not many can keep style
I have seen dogs with more style than men,
although not many dogs have style.
Cats have it with abundance.

When Hemingway put his brains to the wall with a shotgun,
that was style.
Or sometimes people give you style
Joan of Arc had style
John the Baptist
Jesus
Socrates
Caesar
García Lorca.

I have met men in jail with style.
I have met more men in jail with style than men out of jail.
Style is the difference, a way of doing, a way of being done.
Six herons standing quietly in a pool of water,
or you, naked, walking out of the bathroom without seeing me.”

Charles Bukowski
beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
