I don’t give much on birthdays of people who died thousands of years ago. I hardly knew them anyway. I like snow and Winter, though. You can gather this from my Twitter background image. I am a child of Winter, and this has a lot to do with the characteristics of the season. Ice and snow keeps people at home. You are less likely to meet someone (apart from cities that defy the seasons due to technical advantage). People are so busy spending time with their family or at church, so they leave you alone. Perfect.

This is the time when thoughts can roam free.

Side Effects

You don’t need eyes to see; you need vision. Now there’s a wonderful sentence. It’s a great quote. It fits on the paper entrails of a fortune cookie. The statement is sufficiently non-descript, so you can use it in a multitude of situations. It also sounds smart, because anyone hearing it will be forced to look for a meaning. That’s the fun side of quotations. You look them up, you remember your favourite lines from films and TV shows, then you use them on an unsuspecting audience. It’s a perfect distraction and fun at the same time. The side effect is looking intelligent. The show must go on. Feel free to try it yourself, the Internet is full of quotes.

Snow. Beautiful, silences the idiots and keeps them off the street, because most of them stay at home when the ground suddenly turns white. Side effect: You might freeze.

Insights. Now there’s a dirty word. Few take it seriously, that’s what lies are for. Too much insight is similar to too much sunlight – ends with ight and is not healthy. Side effect: You start using less smart quotations and can face snow. It’s just frozen stuff anyway – and snow.
