  1. I don’t think it’s possible to be out of influence of the world. But it’s possible to feel that others (and their expectations) and you are not the same. It can make the influence feebler.
    I like your reflection!

                1. First of all its been said that life is suffering. Its also been said that despite complaining about it people like to suffer. And suffering can be a great motivator for change. Put a fork in me I’m done! (Вставь вилку в меня, я сделал!)

                  1. Well, if you enjoy your sufferings I can leave you with them. If no I will continue to write you dozens of letters unless you say stop it.
                    The translation shouldn’t be literal, I googled and got it!

    1. Thanks Larry but I always had the impression that you were Mister Zen. Did it really take you your whole life to discover who you are? Anyway, I wonder if the quote more than the image resonates with people, I came very close to deleting it and I’m still not sure I like it. But as I said I’m going to leave it as a commitment to letting go of perfectionism.
