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

I - an exchange

This exchange is a spin-off from a comment I made:-

Plants produce the most fatal venoms, worms die by the millions, we survive because our livers die and are reborn a thousand times fighting the venom.
- me

New liver, new in-
testine lining packaged in
new skin: where is me?
- Max

Some things added, some
forgotten, I am the sum
of my memories.
- me

Some sums, some dimsums, banal
trivia, irrelevant memories.
- Alaka

Banal or potent
memories constitute self-
footprints etched in stone.
- Max
