It's been a while since I added anything... A longer one, at that.
During that time, there was some things happening. Many of them were intensive as fuck, both in positive and negative sense of this word. There was a lot that has been said, even more that was thought, and far too little really done.

Words
Thoughts
Actions
There's a difference. One cannot substitute the other, in no way. Sometimes it's all that is possible, but it's just not enough.
You know, we're often said, I was at least, that words have a lot of power. And they truly do. It's a mighty weapon, for those who can skillfully use it. Words can motivate us, give us hope, strength, endurance and knowledge. They can also devoid us of those. The more we listen to, the more we seem to absorb what is being said, but what we actually do with the knowledge, is only dependent on us. We're not talking manipulation now, or brainwashing, but an actual talk, a dialogue, let's say, between two people.



The more you talk, the more time you spend with one person, you can notice that people often work in patterns. It's something I've noticed some time ago, and since then, I've done some personal research about it. When you spend time with other person, you learn about him or her, either it is directly or indirectly. The direct way is the experience you earn via this contact. Listening, watching, just being around the person. Indirect way is the knowledge outside of it. What you can think, suppose, wonder, but also what others tell you. The problem with indirect knowledge, is that you're never certain if it's accurate and – maybe more importantly – if it still has a place.



When you learn, you start connecting one to the other, and if you're careful enough, you can start discovering certain ways people work in. It also can be seen in the way they talk or act, and it's also clear when the relation you have doesn't exactly go in a way it was supposed to. If it's not “good”, and if it doesn't give you happiness you were counting on. I can see that in almost every person I look at and I know deeper, of course, considering I care strong enough. Arrogance, you might say. Not really. When you see enough of it, you can subconsciously realize certain things, without even thinking about it. And your opinion and judgement about the person is ready.
Where am I going with this?
Words. We hear or read hundreds of them every single day. Words are said to be so important. It's the way we communicate, verbal language is the most common type of communication humans use to give information one to another. But there is also a problem with words, and it's something that might sometimes ruin everything.
Memory.
We remember what was said. And if we're smart enough, we can connect and compare facts, sentences, calls and shouts. I can do so. I remember what was told, because of how I treat when somebody speaks to me. I prefer listening quietly, and allowing the information to get into me, so I can ponder on my own. I'm used to working like that, and it's what somehow gives me... satisfaction, for the lack of a better word. But I'll get back to it some other time.



Let's talk dreams now.



What are those dreams, and what place to they take in our life?
Imagine a long corridor in the castle. It's dark, it has torches on the walls, and it leads somewhere. You're standing at the one side of it, with a fire in your hands. Just one fire. A match, let's say.
You have a chance to ignite one torch.
Those torches are the dreams we have, and that corridor represents our life. What is interesting is that for every person it looks differently. At different moments of your own life, it will change. Sometimes it's longer, darker, the torches are put in different places, some of them are bigger than the others, some of them will take you more to ignite, sometimes the corridor will be straight, the other time, you won't recognize it's the same place it was.
The castle is the universe we're all together in, and just as in a regular castle, this one as well has many corridors, rooms and places you can visit.
Those corridors, just as in real castles, are also connected to one another. But this connection has to be found. Sometimes it's easy to notice, but sometimes you might think there's nothing to do but to skip it, and do your thing. But I tell you what, I believe that it's all connected. And other people might enter your corridor. It might be that their corridor goes through yours at some moment, then it connects into one bigger one. Or it just cuts it for a while, gets so dizzy and crazy, and disappears without a trace. Those connections are amazing, and you can never really know what you might find, and how it will turn out or end. Because none of us can see the future, and maybe there is a reason behind this.
Sometimes you might be in a place when you don't have fire to light a torch anymore, and you're standing in complete darkness. In such moments, there comes somebody who wants to light your torches. But what if they aren't compatibile? What if their torch is yellow and yours is, let's say, red? In this way, their fire somehow might help you find a way to light your own fire. And when that happens, that person will make a new torch, the red one this time, and help you light the rest of yours, not even asking if you need this. They'll just do so.



This, dear you, is what I call : love. A princess and a knight, lighting torches together.
