pocket evening

By Dg
The evening must have slipped through a hole in my pocket. I had a chain to catch it back, but I must have forgotten the meaning of chains. That night, freedom was bliss.

I'm not sure if the watch is opening or closing...

A very attractive image with delicious, tantalising words; and I'm still trying to work out what the language is in the book.....

Thanks to all 4 of you for dropping by and leaving a comment - very much appreciated.
Moira, as far as the opening/closing issue is concerned, there are several ways to put it.
The first one: it's closing time, but that's precisely when the mind starts to open.
The second one: with clocks, as with time, I believe it's quite a tricky think to say whether it's closing or opening; we people tend to associate closing with the past, and opening with the future; the present is always somewhere on the borderline, and by the time you say it's opening you realize it's already closed.
The third mention: be it open or closed, the clock still ticks on Smile

Bill, the language is a romance language, as you have probably guessed. It's Romanian, and the book is a translation of Henri Bergson's essay "Le Rire". A very challenging book (I would to say), which left me with an open mind (not sure yet whether I should be happy about this or not, a bit more open mind sometimes leads to a bit emptier heart.)
Leaving that aside, it's a book I would strongly recommend to anyone interested in psychology, sociology and modern philosophy.

Thanks again for dropping by, and have a wonderful (rest of the) weekend!
