"Most people were heartless about turtles because a turtles heart will beat for hours after it has been cut up and butchered. But the old man thought, I have such a heart too. " #ErnestHemingway The old man and the sea.
Was finding it difficult to climb back on yesterday. Thanks @ianfimone for the photo.

when your waiter comes out with food but it’s for another table
"Everyone, at some point in their lives, wakes up in the middle of the night with the feeling that they are all alone in the world, and that nobody loves them now and that nobody will ever love them, and that they will never have a decent night’s sleep again and will spend their lives wandering blearily around a loveless landscape, hoping desperately that their circumstances will improve, but suspecting, in their heart of hearts, that they will remain unloved forever. The best thing to do in these circumstances is to wake somebody else up, so that they can feel this way, too."
Tokyo’s End: Photos by Gabriel De La Chapelle
Superimposed road signs on the canals running through Tokyo to make them look like highways.
Away from the fury and loneliness of the crowd, Tokyo is getting empty and is losing its humanity. A solitary exploration along its asphalt lanes. It’s a cold and bright city which unveils endless roads to me. The rain, far from erasing the ferocious lighting, is painting shapeshifting and colorful stains on the ground. But Tokyo without its human magma still doesn’t look inconsistent to me. It is on the contrary a fantastic vision, almost poetic, which emanates from it. Not to ask any questions. Not to try understanding. Tokyo exposed.
