The problem with education

Are we to be forever damaged by what happened when we were 16 and too young to know better? Why do we, regardless of our parents best efforts, grow up to be defenseless? Is it a necessary process, or can it be avoided by being like everyone else? Is it because so much effort is spent on creating normal people rather than people who are content with their uniqueness? We are taught how to be good and match society's contemporary ideals rather than to be happy. Sad.

Post-rain

I liked how post-rain world has sharper, brighter colors.

There was a guy with a tattered rainbow umbrella and an equally tattered black suit whom I saw smiling at the people yesterday, while begging for money. I walked past him. I saw him again today and almost dropped the contents of my wrap to give him some money. I watched a shop assistant arrange the front window of a store and the first thought that came into my mind was "hey, they got a moving manequin".
