Wie ich mechanisch eine neue Zigarrette drehe und die braunen Stäubchen mit feinem Prickeln auf das weißgelbe Löschpapier der Schreibmappe niedertaumeln, will es mir unwarscheinlich werden, daß ich noch wache. Und wie die feuchtwarme Abendluft, die durch das offene Fenster neben mir hereingeht, die Rauchwölkchen so seltsam formt und aus dem Bereich der grünbeschirmten Lampe ins Mattschwarze trägt, steht es mir fest, daß ich schon träume.
Da wird's natürlich schon ganz arg; denn diese Meinung wirft der Phantasie die Zügel auf den Rücken. Hinter mir knackt heimlich neckend die Stuhllehne, daß es mir jäh wie hastiger Schauder durch alle Nerven fährt. Das stört mich ärgerlich in meinem tiefsinnigen Studium der Bizarren Rauchschriftzeichen, die im mich irren, und über die einen Leitfaden zu ferfassen ich bereits entschlossen war.
Aber nun ist die Ruhe zum Teufel. Tolle Bewegung in allen Sinnen. Fiebrisch, nervös, wahnsinnig. Jeder Laut keift. Und mit all dem verwirrt steigt Vergessenes auf. Einst dem Sehsinn Eingeprägtes, das sich seltsam erneut; mit dem Fühlen dazu von damals. [...] Vision. Proza-Skizze//Thomas Mann.

:: chitter-chatter ::

i talked to Norma last night, after not knowing what was going on in her life for a while._ it's comforting, i must say; after having written not long ago about distance between friends, it's nice to "hear" from her, know that she's ok.
i'm planning on taking a couple of courses in art this next semester; if all goes well, i'll take 'artistic anatomy'-which is exciting to an incredible extent- and 'great masters of modern art' -which seems absolutely necessary, given my ignorance of current and not so current affairs in the 'artistic world'._aside from those two, i'm planning on taking a seminar on Nietzsche and a course on Husserl as well as attending to a seminar on Aristotle's Physics._ if i manage to do such thing, i will be only three semesters away from graduating: two semesters of seminars and 'electives' and a semester for writing my monography._it seems as though i will be able to prove Amanda wrong, and everyone else who thought that this was not the right choice to make along with her._ i must say, with everyday past, i grow more passionate about what i'm doing, more interested in what is implied by following this path._i guess i'm finally starting to get a notion of what it means to acquire the ever so desired balance between what for so long seemed to be in conflict._if not that, i am, at least, starting to get a taste of the intention of doing so.
you're right, j.,i should just stop dwelling in my fears and take a good look around, to see that those that are here are in fact here, even it if it is just for now._but you must remember that fears are, primarily, haunting, and so, not easy to evade, no, not at all.
i'm getting glasses, on friday._i'm finally going to be protected from that evil light that lurks -yes, funny enough- around every corner._Marta said once that i would look terribly geek-ish with glasses; she's right, i look like a nerd, geek, dork or whatever other name can be thought of._but i'll be a nerd that can see that she's being made fun of, and that's a lot more than what i can say for now.
my mother brought me several books from her trip to spain; Aristotle's Physics , Reproduction of Animals, a manual on medieval philosophy and a book by Montesquieu, which are now of my 'to read' list._ i've read a couple of very interesting articles on Plato's Parmenides and Aristotle's critique to his arguments that are seemingly useful for my monography.
