This is a reflection of life and thoughts.

The day was a silent metaphor. I listened to the sweet and cathartic chiming of the birds in the morn. The muse provided me with some inspirational thoughts of Philosophy. I have developed an essay on the forms of catharsis and I have sent it for publication. I also have developed some ideas on the Philosophy of Post-post modernism, some workable concepts which I have to expand into an essay. This whole month I having no luck with lotteries and I hope things will get better as the days go by. Sometimes I wonder why prayers go unanswered. But who am I to question the sovereignty of God almighty Jehovah Jesus? I usually pick the numbers 4 5 6 14 15 23 33 and so on as these numbers have become influential in my life. I feel worried as I am jobless and I am depending on my family for daily needs. I have decided to quit smoking as it is acting as a pinch on my wallet. May be I can begin it again as soon as my income increases. The sky remained a cloudy epiphany and it was showering throughout the day. The sky remained a stoned muse and rain was pouring intermittently. I pondered on Nietzsche’s theory of art which says that art is the combination of the Dionysian and the Apollonian. The Dionysian elements are rhythm and beat and the Apollonian elements are harmony and melody. What can rhythm and beat mean in literary texts? Rhythm and beat can mean and be interpreted as the pulse of expression using various figurative devices and the Apollonian could mean the characterization and the plot or the narrative through streams of consciousness. Yes, literature is the experience of the beautiful and is a profound music of words. I have developed a new genre of fiction called Philosophical fiction and it resembles an abstract akin to Picasso’s cubism and Dali’s surrealism and it is work which nonlinear, a progression of words having an episodical temperament, or a streams of consciousness narrative where fact becomes the windows of the soul of character, where ideas become epiphanies and other figurative devices of thought.
