It is not advisable to write about positive things only because it would evoke jealousy in the reader. (I just heard about a study on the radio which investigated how depressed people get from browsing their friends’ Facebook profiles, especially when they see the holiday photos of others.) So I have decided to start a new series about some of the sad things I encounter. Who knows, you may even discover a certain beauty in or fascination with those sad moments in life.
I start with this poster which has been attached to the door of my house in Vilnius for at least one week now. Somebody is looking for a cat which escaped, and not a single one of the strips with the owners’ phone numbers has been torn off yet.
