Today’s winning chess (music) video

I AM AND I AM NOT

felix

I’m drenched in the flood which has yet to come

I’m tied up in the prison which has yet to exist…

Not having played the game of chess I’m already the checkmate

Not having tasted a single cup of your wine I’m already drunk

Not having entered the battlefield I’m already wounded and slain

I no longer know the difference between image and reality

Like the shadow I am And I am not

Jalaluddin Rumi
