Castles in the air - they are so easy to take refuge in. And so easy to build, too.

आम्हां घरी धन शब्दांचीच रत्नें | शब्दांचीच शस्त्रें यत्न करुं ||
शब्द चि आमुच्या जीवांचे जीवन | शब्दें वांटूं धन जनलोकां ||
तुका म्हणे पाहा शब्द चि हा देव | शब्द चि गौरव पूजा करुं ||
- abhang of Tukaram Wolhoba Ambile of Dehu

There's No Freedom Like That of a Child's Imagination

eyes

my eyes met hers in a train
her hands rose to cover them
and revealed one and then the other
a little giggle burst out
and i was in love

i hid myself behind my book
her earnest eyes searched
i suddenly revealed myself
and said boo
she laughed out in her shrill voice
and i was in love again

then she covered her face
and unhid it again
she shouted boo and laughed
and i was in love forever

I am guessing that you encountered a cute baby girl in a train. Am I correct?

btw, i am on a jared diamond spree right now. I bought collapse, finished the third chimpanzee and read his new yorker article twice. :)
