I really have to apologise for the lack of posts these days. So much is happening in my life, that the days just seem to zoom pass, leaving a somewhat confused, slightly bewildered and extremely exhausted anttyk behind – scratching his head and blinking in surprise. Where have all the time gone?

I foresee that this will continue till early October.


A Dream Within a Dream

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep!
O God! Can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! Can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

Edgar Allan Poe

I am selling my car, and buying a bicycle.

What the hell?
