recollection of a pleasure, or the luxury of a regret-

I'm so tired. I work too much...way too many projects that I'm responsible for these days...I just want to sleep..I actually want to travel and go away from the usual day to day stuff that lost any fun. Due to being so tired after work I missed so many good shows such as Clifton David, Dearly Beloved and even tonight my friend Teddy asked me to come to Bovine because his band, Tenth Planet, is playing. I really like that band by the way...their singer has extrodinary (sp?) voice...But as I said I cannot go because I'm tired and because I'm working early tomorrow...blah...

And after all I have nothing much to write about. My only relationship is with books and music...I can't say that the same observation goes for people around me. It's always that strange feeling of awkwardness around people...always aware of them...interupted by them....This does not mean that I consider myself un-human but I for sure would be in the category where most humans are not to scare you with my silly conversation here...Right now I'm reading a book by Oscar Wilde. I think he has an extrodinary mind and the book is called "The Picture of Dorian Gray"....and here are some parts that caught my attention:
"It is a sad thing to think of, but there is no doubt that genius lasts longer than beauty. That account for the fact that we all take such pains to over-educate ourselves. In the wild struggle for existence, we want to have something that endures, and so we fill our minds with rubbish and facts, in silly hope of keeping our place."
Well there you go another way to think about over-educating
And my fav part from this book goes:
"It has been said that the great events of the world take place in the brain. It is in the brain, and the brain only, that the great sins of the world take place also."
