Ever tried? Ever failed? Let me tell you a few things that happened on my way to Qufu Road. I was super late for work already. I couldn’t find one matching pair of socks. They were drilling next door and my coffee maker broke down. But I took a deep breath and thought, no matter what, I can make it. Without caffeine, for the first time in my life, first my body elevated, then my soul. I can do it, I said, I can do it. I’m always all over the place. One foot after another (try one and then the other), and my body was in a different place. The speed almost made me throw up, but fortunately I had nothing in my stomach. Just go, it’s been almost an hour. I realized it wasn’t happening. I was back in my bed. The same body again at the same place that nothing can escape from. I finally got my clothes on and the tuk-tuk took me to the subway. “What are you doing here at six o’clock on a Sunday morning?” the driver asked me. Man, I just want my coffee. I paid him, walked back home and sang myself the Beckettian entrepreneur mantra. Try again? Fail again? Fail better! [András Gál]
