Sunday.

Sitting on the finnair bus thinking about the weekend gone by. One thought comes to mind, a quotation from the book I finished on the flight home. 

Shorn of intimacy and seen from a considerable distance, we are all comic characters, farcical buffoons who bumble through our lives, making fine messes as we go, but when you get close, the ridiculous quickly fades into the sordid or the tragic or the merely sad. 

Siri Hustvedt, The Summer Without Men.

    As the quote goes: “this world is a comedy to those who think and a tragedy to those who feel”…

    1. how true isn’t that…
