Melancholia is a tensions boredom between the collapsing worlds around and within you, and the courage to love the same in rising wings from the ashes and creating the exalted, new reality with enough distance from the evil roots. This clear breeze of distance is happiness. Te be happy is to open your inner self and be free. Do not ever think you have nothing to lose. I am not any longer here to win the race, but to lose more slowly. The last words are written white on white and very true. This is the field of my home grown wisdom.
