The way out through the inside


Much of what we perceive as boredom,
is perhaps due to our own will that it should be this way
or unwillingness to make changes
boring or not, everything is in the eye of the beholder
inspiration doesn’t hit those who have eyes closed.

What makes life dreary is the want of a motive
(George Eliot – british author)

We come from nothing,
we are going back to nothing
in the end what have we lost..?
(Monty Python – any one who don’t know who they are..?)


Many call this city boring, many inhabitants do it too
if we think a city is dull, it isn’t the city which is it
but the inhabitants and guests of the city.
Who says there are no boring tourists and inhabitants ..?

  1. Wow, what a great reminder. I loved the line “inspiration doesn’t hit those with their eyes closed”. Although I took it in a more metaphorical sense. Really something to think about. Thanks for sharing this.

      It’s from the county of Greater Manchester in northern England – where you can sail direct from Leeds to Liverpool (or Manchester) – some places you can choose both canal waterway or natural water stream – this is one of the natural ones… 🙂

  2. You have the best pics with your thoughts.;-) 🙂 That city in the second pic looks very appealing.
    Well, I’m certainly not bored, in any city, and I’m lucky enough to live in what I think is a very exciting city. _Resa

  3. A lot of wisdom in this post! I agree with what you wrote. Like Margaret, me too, I appreciate particularly “inspiration doesn’t hit those with their eyes closed”. However it is not easy to have always this attitude towards life and often we need a motive to go on… most of us are so weak (surely me!) 😦
    Ciao ciao Le drake, I like very much your blog..

      Thanks a lot, so glad you find it interesting – really appreciate your words… 🙂

      Agree with you, it isn’t always easy – not at all… 🙂

      Maybe sometimes we appreciate better the things that have been difficult to achieve than the things that have come (too) easy… 🙂 🙂

      Agree with you – don’t live there only visiting, but I found it very interesting… 🙂

      If we waiting for things being interesting,
      we may have to wait very long,
      at the point we need to be active too… 🙂

      In a way I agree with you – but there are at least 2 ways of dreaming – dreams which push or pull you the way you want to follow – and dreams which push or pull you away from our “dream road”…. 🙂
