the problem with tumblr is that when you see post text and photo side by side you get quite confused as to which temptation to give in to!
The red letter box
There goes a story about a misty morning walk, that has to be told before dusk comes along. As twilight trickled slowly, a shrill alarm was due to scream, in the dead of dawn while sleep tossed in bed, those feet scampered and sneaked across green fields. Into the peace of woods, so eerie yet calm, cracking leaves, snappy twigs, silence held its own balm. Somewhere in the middle of nowhere, it stood red and rusted, the box that held moments, some questions, assortments rejected. Groggy, seeking eyes rushed forward. A letter waiting, some words..maybe a song, maybe a poem. Eager hands brushed asides, fingers dug between the leaves piled. What was that scrap of a ruled sheet? Why was the air so eager?

Why does it seem that everybody seems to be screaming me, me, me..around me?
What if you woke up one morning and turned aside to switch your phone alarm off, it blows up like a bomb in your hand? The toaster pops out burnt paper like bread. You get ready to go to work and just as the engine rumbles, your car is reduced to a pile of junk. The elevator turns into a cardboard box like vault and you end up using the stairs. And the same day, your PC/Mac starts emitting multicoloured laser-like sharp rays that pinch you the second they touch your skin.
What if, someday technology turns against mankind and takes all its revenge?
Everybody..e v e r y b o d y, including my neighbor’s limping dog thinks that “nobody understands me!”
