One who shall die - greets you!

Why Departed?

It’s all about death.

I’m immortal.

Immortal like every men and women I know. (Ok. I admit there may be a several people who are not immortal and I know them, but I can’t recognize that quality in them so it doesn’t matter. Sort of.) What I want to say is that I do not know that I’m going to die one day. I mean, I do know, but only as idea. I do not know it by my heart and certainly not by my stomach. And these are parts where our true knowledge is, where what we really know is. All those funny ideas what we have in our mind (some people call it “head”) about our values, who we are (kind and loving person), who we love (yes, darling I’ll love you until the end of time) very quickly evaporate when our everyday routine has been shaken. Like, for example, when stupid bitch that I call “wife” (or “mother”, or “sister”, or “grandma”) ate last peace of my favorite chocolate. All that stories that we talk ourselves about love, care, giving etc. are flushed down the toilet in second. Isn’t that funny?
- Hey, man! Who you are?
(with crying voice)
- Don’t know, man!
- Why?
- I’ve been flushed down the toilet.

What's this blog about?

It's all about money.

That's it.

The Plan is simple. Make enough money from my writing so I can quit current job and write and meditate the whole day. To do that, I need to start a blog (among other things :-)) in English because a lot more people understand English then Croatian. Cro-what!? Yeah, you got the point. That will be quite challenging because English is not my mother tongue and I was very lazy student throughout whole of my scholarly life. I simply didn't want to study (English as a foreign language, included). Maybe school was too easy for me or I was not ambitious enough or just lazy. Who knows? But it doesn't matter, really. Now I know what I know and I have to live with that and try to do better than I did in my past.

I know the Plan is very long shot and I know there is probably a million young writers like me worldwide, but in a way - I got nothing to lose. Monty Python said in Life of Brian:
You know, you come from nothing - you're going back to nothing. What have you lost? Nothing! 
So, is there any good reason why should I succeed? I don't know. But I'm going to find out. In the end:

It's all about writing.

Goodbye cockroaches!
