an ode to nights effect



the foundation of the alphabet is
a half lost bag of chocolate candies is

I'm different now then i will be in the morning, that's a generally relate-able quality isn't it?
What about indifference? It's undoubtedly present in my life and goes relatively unchallenged. Do i suffer from indifference or do i reap it's benefits?

I read this a few days ago. It was written by Elizabeth Bowen, an English author, regarding the blackout in France during World War 2

Full moon drenched the city and searched it;
there was not a niche left to stand in.
The effect was remorseless:
London looked like the moon's capital – shallow, cratered, extinct…

While on the subject of talented people i would like to acknowledge this guy

How is talent measured? is it measured in a surplus of victories or in a lack of defeats?
is it achievable or is it simply a relative thing?
is it permanent?

regardless I think we all have it.

In case you were wondering, I'm playing with rubber bands right now.
My mind is wandering and I'm very distracted. I should probably get back to work. It's going to be hard though, I'm feeling spacey and accordingly exhausted.

...(several moments of contemplation)

Despite these things I'm off to continue my paper, hopefully it wont be to much of an ode to nights effect and more than anything a collection of exemplified literary terms.
