Incidentally, there is a blue moon on monday july 30th. that is ... tomorrow.
Friday night, I slept in a little hotel in the middle of the woods in the french mountains, on my way back from a week on the road. I couldn't see the Haut-Koenigsbourg castel from my window, but it was there, watching on us a few miles ahead on the dead end road. the nature around the hotel was desperatly quiet, you could not hear a single sound coming from the forest, even if you would hold your breath as long as you could. from my room's window, I could see the circular disk of the moon holding my gaze. silent, expressionles.
I could not sleep that night. too quiet. I cannot sleep without the sound of a road, a factory, an expressway, an airport, a scooter passing in the horizon or a tv next room. I'm a garbage city kid.
finnally, I fell asleep for a short moment, only to wake up screaming around 2 am after a dream of pursuit, torture, trephanations, and feline monters.
on the plus side, I finished to read the book I brought with me that night.
never again will I eat that much sauerkraut, sausages and fat pork before I go to sleep. have a nice blue moon week.

Some say she is dull
She takes me through rain and snow
I just love my bike
haikus have rather strict rules. you do not have the right to use images or metaphores. you are not allwoed to compare love to a rose or life to a motorcycle. haikus are here and now. first impression. zen. Usually 7-5-7
Maybe it lacks some power
yours has got much more
Still I am faster than you
You didn't expect any automn leaves or little girls on mother's day did you ?
The journey always to short
I start the engine
No stop before horizon
Enjoy your weekend
Smells like leather, gasoline
Your harms around me
Love the machine love the road
(I did not shoot this video)

The idea is clearly beter than the image, probably because it's my girlfriend's idea, and because I spent the night riding the bike with my gang instead of thinking about Illo Friday, emptying my mind after a few days of chaos.
a handfull of friends on fast motorcycles riding in squadron with the girl on the back in a warm summer day, the smell of grass and wood in the countryside, a late supper out on a table outside with a lot of cheap jokes, the ride home as the sun sets in panavision, what more would you need really. then my mind went numb.

this topic wasn't much fun.
I hate to laugh at people. I take no pride in moking people. this geekiness concept is SO american. I try to stay out of stereotypes as much as I can. the geek IS a stereotype. now sexy geeky girl is also already a stereotype. you just can't work on that subject without falling into cliches and contempt.
Geeks invented scanners to cure brain diseases, geeks invented the internet and computer assisted fuel injected systems, I love books and girls with glasses make me horny.
have a nice week end.
