“Normal is an illusion. What is normal for the spider is chaos for the fly.”
Charles Addams

“All these bad experiences that we go through, they don't just disappear. We carry them our whole life trying to forget, escaping in habits, addictions, hate, toxic relationships. But what we don't know is that by doing so we let them stay alive. We water them like withered flowers and we hang onto them to justify our mistakes and failures.”
Asper Blurry, Train to the Edge of the Moon

“Illusion"

A man wants to be free
flying in the emptiness of the universe
He thinks he means something
in the endlessness of nature
A man wakes up
being only a dust”
Asper Blurry, Train to the Edge of the Moon

“Some nights the sky wept stars that quickly floated and disappeared into the darkness before our wishes could meet them. ”
