a collage

Reading: Some of Kafka's short short stories (one paragraph to two pages long) from Kafka's
Metamorphosis and Other Stories.
Definitely worth checking out, especially if you're in a summer reading slump and have a short attention span right now as a result (like me), particularly for literary endeavors. These short short stories are stuck under a category entitled "Meditations," and incidentally, this collection of stories is the only one that Kafka chose to publish in his lifetime. All the other stuff (The Trial, most notably) he told his good buddy Max to destroy but Max kubar and decided to publish them anyway after Franz died. In case anyone is inspired to read some Kafka now, my favorite "Meditation" so far is "The Rejection."

The photo: another collage, put together two days ago like the last one.
