Reflection for today…Intimate Conversation -Haruki Murakami

29 Jan

“We used to spend hours talking.

We never got tired of talking, never ran out of topics – novels, the world, scenery, language.

Our conversations were more open and intimate than any lovers’.” 
Haruki Murakami,    Sputnik Sweetheart

Hannibal I Let You Know Me

Dr. Hannibal Lecter’s relationship to FBI Profiler Will Graham is one of deep intimacy. It is a complicated relationship of intellectual equals and more. Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy played it beautifully. 

Hannibal It Was IntimateI really cannot recommend watching Hannibal enough. It is by far one of my most favourite television series ever. I really think Bryan Fuller, the gifted actors and his team have created a cinematic masterpiece made for television.

Hannibal is surreal and sophisticated with a dark romanticism. It is cerebral as it delves into the psyches of FBI profiler Will Graham and Dr.Hannibal Lecter. 

It will be a delight for anyone that enjoys psychology and Thomas Harris‘ books respectively.

Have you seen Hannibal?

What did you think?

Does it haunt you?

It haunts me in the most beautiful way…

Reflection for today…Love Vs. Infatuation -Chuck Klosterman

4 Nov

“I have never understood the concept of infatuation.

It has always been my understanding that being ‘infatuated’ with someone means you think you are in love, but you’re actually not; infatuation is (supposedly) just a foolish, fleeting feeling.

But if being ‘in love’ is an abstract notion, and it’s not tangible, and there is no way to physically prove it to anyone else…

well, how is being in love any different than having an infatuation?

They’re both human constructions.

If you think you’re in love with someone and you feel like you’re in love with someone, then you obviously are; thinking and feeling is the sum total of what love is.

Why do we feel an obligation to certify emotions with some kind of retrospective, self-imposed authenticity?”

Do you agree with Chuck Klosterman?

Why or why not?

Are the concepts of love and infatuation too cerebral/intellectual and abstract?

Are they not emotive enough?

Can love truly be defined?

Why do we constantly need to define things?

Why can’t we just let them be? 

infatuation-vs-love

*Is the role of art to define love or is it the goal of life?

Are feelings of love more or less valid than thoughts of love?

{I think it all counts but I believe love is shown in actions}.

How can you prove your love?

Doesn’t infatuation sound so immature as opposed to love?

{I think love is mature and infatuation is immature}.

Is infatuation always temporary?

{It is interesting to note that most poets/authors/musicians/artists write and sing more about love and not infatuation}. Why do you think that is?

Is infatuation dangerous?
