Loss vs Lack

“… But there’s a big difference between loss and lack. I suppose it’s like well, imagine a train steaming down a track. The freight’s disappeared from one of the cars. A car that’s empty inside - that’s loss. When the whole car itself has vanished, that’s lack.”

How much more right can this get? We often tend to overestimate something that is lost, what we do not understand is that it is not equivalent to the lack of it in this world. It is somewhere around in some form, we should be thankful to God for that and how beautifully is this put across in the book Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami. I recommend a read.

PS: Back after the longest break from my blog as far as I can remember, before the loss could progress to lack;)

Good night
