False Start #12

An underdog only knows successes as something singular, abnormal, but incredibly sweet – an oasis in the desert, the sudden respite of a long journey. Unlike the champion, they can never know the spoils of success or consistent victory – the verdant valleys, settlement and prosperity. The underdog will envy the champion for the continuity of his excellence, seeming effortlessness in the face of adversity; the champion will envy the underdog for that sweetness of victory after a great struggle no-one, not even they themselves thought they could win.

False Start #10

The essence of friendship is a conversation that never ends. Even as friends jump into separate taxis, part ways in train stations, board planes across oceans, or leave life entirely, the conversation continues in absentia; the conversation never ends.

False Start #9

I often whisper to myself in the night: “Yes, you have it all already.” I don’t know if that means to keep going, or just to stop and stand still.

False Start #8

One speaks gloom and doom so they might see only happiness before their eyes. Incantations of evil are ultimately harbingers of the good.
