Some days ago, I got another "epiphany". We cannot know completely where we are going and at the same time where we are. It's basically Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle. Should an electron had conscience will it know it's position and where it's going? If that thought is true (and I believe it), then people will need to choose among three strategies in life. "Know Thyself" is a famous way to express, "know where you are"; for existence is temporal. Then there's the other school of thought, "Dream and make it happen" or "How far do you want to go today" or any variation of the same principle. Of course, there's the third way, which is either a hybrid philosophy or just a Taoist one. I chose the third one.

A previous epiphany was that we are Change Agents, whatever we do we can only change. Again, it's just an interesting way to see the second law of thermodynamics. This one came while talking with Pollo about life. Trying to keep things the same is always an illusion. Bringers of chaos.

I know these thoughts may sound too... obvious or maybe too static... but I wanted to share them.

Yesterday Sunday, I took it slow on what to do about my day. I couldn't contact someone, and the truth is that what I wanted of that day was very passive, maybe not so enjoyable for friends to hang. So I came up with this plan, go to the Metropolitan park and make myself write. You see, for a long time I have desired to make time to just write. The best way to be a writer is to write, isn't it?

I made my mind maybe a bit too late, because I came just a few minutes before the sunset. I enjoy a lot that place. A couple of days before I saw in the map how big that park is. That moment a seed was planted in my mind. In the road I heard a couple of good song, which as always I didn't knew the name. (Good thing I had a pen and paper, so I wrote down the lyric and there's google).

There was an almost invisible fog, I walked to what got my attention, a huge tree phallus. I'm not kidding, just a probably dead trunk with zero branches, about 5 meters tall meter and half of diameter, wrapped in ivy.

[This entry has been a draft for so long, that I just lost interest in writing more about it]

Today I learnt a very good lesson, well not really but I had my eyes wide open when a lesson occurred and I know there is something here. Imagine this scene, Alba and I waiting for our meal in the cafeteria, there was "Aztec Chicken" or something like that in that table. And there she says to me, "What I really want is a 'Chicken Hamburger'?". And I do said, "Well in the next table there you can ask for one". "Nah". One moment later, a lady comes and says, there's no more chicken in this table, and so does Alba goes to the next table. I do got my chicken (which I wanted). Five minutes later Alba sat down and she got "Roasted Chicken". "Hey, didn't you wanted a hamburger?" "Finally, Woman" and she just bite it.

(This post is kind a response to something victor blogged.) Learn whatever you can find in this little story, I'm still grasping with the how-obvious-can-they-be part...
