Mind-Wandering To The Lines Of Haruki MurakamiSaturday, March 12, 2011
If you have picked up the habit of reading novels by Haruki Murakami - you'll understand why I have to say that he's a master story-teller who has the knack of spinning simple observation of everyday occurrences into a surreal existential dive that will stay with you long after you've finished reading say, a short paragraph. Let's mind-wander to the lines of this amazing fiction surrealist, shall we?
"Our city, these streets, I don't know why it makes me so depressed. That old familiar gloom that befalls the city dweller, regular as due dates, cloudy as mental Jell-O. The dirty facades, the nameless crowds, the unremitting noise, the packed rush-hour trains, the gray skies, the billboards on every square centimeter of available space, the hopes and resignation, irritation and excitement."
