really liked it
Read in July, 2007

My melancholy of a city.

A smoky window, behind which the black and white shadowy pictures narrate a whole culture, story and cold gloom of a city, with a voice muffled from the snowfalls.
An effort to write the whole 34 chapters of a melancholy shared by millions, with the alphabets of black and white hazy pictures.

Memories of a city
Getting stuck into the ambiguities of a single word:
"Hüzün" (Huzn): The confused spiritual hazy communal sense of melancholy.
