 Όλη μέρα εδώ
Γεμίζω αδειάζω τασάκια
Γεμίζω αδειάζω κουράγιο
Γεμίζω αδειάζω ποτήρια
Γεμίζω αδειάζω έρωτα
Τίποτα δεν πρέπει να γεμίζει
Πάνω από τα όριά του
Διαφορετικά ξεχειλίζει
Σε βάζει σε μπελάδες.

(don't?) be afraid

My whole life I've been telling myself "don't be afraid".

And it's only now that I'm realizing how stupid that is. Don't be afraid. Like saying "don't move when out of the way when someone tries to punch you in the face" or "don't flintch at the heat of a fire" or "don't blink". Don't be human. 

Well, you can't. I can't.

I'm afraid and you're afraid and we're all always going to be afraid, because that;s the point. Being afraid sets you in motion. Maybe back maybe forwards but you're moving, and that's what counts. Because as Rosa Luxemburg said, and is oh so right, those who do not move do not notice their chains.

What I should be telling myself is "be afraid but do it anyway"

Live anyway.

μα είναι και αυτό, το, το ότι, άμα τα λέει ο jeff buckley ακούγονται όμορφα.
hallelujah δηλαδή.
