An average day in Kroy

Easter bunnies

I saw a guy with a shirt that had 2 Easter bunnies on it. One Easter bunny kicked the other. The kicked Easter bunny said something in Chinese which I did not understand. Then I was wondering if they have easter bunnies in China and why I see easter bunnies in July anyways.

Memories in Kroy

I have talked about streets and people and dance and night and day ... but really all I talked about or wanted to talk about is: memories. Because memories are what makes humans "humans". Because memories create the link between the past and the now. Because. And they are all around. They are there, swirling in the air, so is it sooooo far off to think that memories are dust particles?
