Monday Moodboard: So it goes says Kurt Vonnegut

There’s just something about rainy days that kinda make me wanna sink in my bed and just doze off. But, that’s hardly productive.

So I always make it a point to catch up on my reading. Mondays are for go-getters and for a sleepy head like me, nothing beats a great pick-me-up than reading some works from my favorite satirist, Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

His works are like personal daggers for me. It feels like I can relate to many of his nitpickings about life, people and the way life just works. His eclectic collection of memories and mementos of people he knew are a thing of mixed reality and fiction. Probably his most iconic character for me is that of Billy Pilgrim in his book Slaughterhouse Five (aside from the Kilgore Trout, of course!)

A farewell writing on a headstone that reads “Everything was beautiful and nothing hurt” is something that sticks to you for a long time.

Speaking of books, I remember that I have a weird habit of using photographs as bookmarks. Maybe because it reminds me of the better things – usually those that I’m fond of. That brings me back to my days in college, I used to have classes in photography. We got to learn about the original badassery of all things analogue.

One assignment was about getting contact prints for a roll of film we used to shoot pictures of things we fancied. My roll of film was about college buddies. It’s a shame I lost those prints. May have made nifty souvenirs for future reference. Maybe Billy Pilgrim gets unstuck in time again and fetch those prints for me.
