A few months ago, this was my almost everyday breakfast, but today it had a different connotation; I have been away from home for more than six month now, and sitting in my room having this specific breakfast, makes me wonder, when something so simple started to be a commodity?"
"It was long since I had longed for anything and the effect on me was horrible."

"We all start by something; many ideas, but no forms, no structure, no meaning… Just fools."
