Sparks

Been looking over some of the writings of Ryunosuke Akutagawa again recently. The first time I read some of his work I mentioned to my girl friend (at that time) that he ended up killing himself. She said: "what's with you and all these books by people that kill themselves?"

Heh. I really like this passage from "A Fool's Life":



Rain drenched, treading asphalt. The rain ferocious.

In the downpour he breathed in the rubber coat

odor.



Before his eyes an aerial power line released sparks

of violet. Strangely he was moved. Tucked away in his

jacket pocket, meant for publication in the group

magazine, was his manuscript. Walking on in the

rain, once more he looked back at the line.



Unremittingly it emitted its prickly sparks. Though

he considered all of human existence, there was

nothing special worth having. But those violet

blossoms of fire,-----those awesome fire works in the

sky, to hold them, he would give his life.


Virtual Library

Haven't felt like writing on my weblog lately. Thinking about it today I realized that this is the part that is like meditation. It's just a thing that is practiced--there is no goal or aim. The important thing is just to do.

I was thinking about how difficult it is to communicate. Even face to face with someone speaking as frankly as possible it's rare that people truely understands each another.

I have read a lot the past several years using my pocket computer. I get accused of being a "gadget freak". I know those impulses and try and resist them. The pocket computer is not used out of a desire or appreciation for gadgets. Quite the opposite in fact. I use it because it enables me to get by with less stuff. How else would I be able to carry around as many books?
