all is illusion  
A depression has settled upon me and lodged itself deep inside my brain. Nothing special going on to cause it, so it's almost certainly just chemical. It's funny how quickly I can lose the ability to care about anything. It's really like a switch has been pulled. At least I've been through this enough times to know I'll come back out the other end at some point.

Oddly, it's only at times like this that I ever feel I could be a Buddhist. My attachments to the world are refreshingly minimal at the moment and my suddenly emptied brain seems primed for meditation.

I'm sure there's a well-established link between depression and religious conversions.

The hand gesture actually has meaning unless my memory has failed me. In 19th century Parisian life, this was a signal that a prostitute would make in public to a possible client that she was available. Very subtle way of doing business I guess, and no one gets embarrassed with "mixed" signals.

So what does it mean here? Possibly the photographer and model are unaware of the gesture? Or it doesn't matter since the gesture has lost it's meaning over the years.

And doesn't it look like the stars are flying out of her rear.
