One strives to abandon the primitivism of a dualist philosophy and not be bound by the liberal fantasies of the enlightenment. There is no such thing as good, nor is there bad, both are constructs. Nothing matters unless you say it does, and justice is a fairy tale told to the existentially terrified or the weak. From the second you pierce the birth caul to the one in which you are wrapped in a shroud, there is only pain and pleasure. There is no regret, the experience of which is like chewing on a stone, with the same predictable result. History does not celebrate the good, instead we remember the monsters. Do you want to be remembered?

As you may have guessed, a humble narrator is in a bit of mood this week. One requires a short break, so single images of various scenes will be greeting you, along with rather depressing anecdotes. Happy Summer.
