yesterday i hit a pottamus? whatver that is that he hit?;-) maybe. The metaphores are so inspiring: the jungle, graan and beautiful on the outside and grey inside, only gets light when something dies. isn't that just another description of life? like.. idealised, 'green', beautiful lucky life, but just that it is not like that, all the bad feelings and stuff are repressed inside, just when we let go of one of these monsters( and it is not easy)- then we get some light the way we see things. errrmm.. does that make sense?
