When he woke up it was the same day

● the glass from the first paragraph – broke
     ● find an interest in something more up-to-date and essential


    1.


    That day he realized that nothing firm he was holding, nor he was firmly holding to something, and not even something firm is holding him. Neither in his life, nor to himself, and nor in his hands. Except the glass, momentarily. And /also/ it was empty.  
    He didn’t fill it. The cooler seemed far away. The night passing. He went to rest.
    When he woke up it was the same day.


    2.

    That day, the man for whom here, like that, was mentioned, realized that nothing /firm/ he was holding, nor he was /firmly/ holding to something, and not even something /firm/ is holding him. Neither in his life, nor to himself, nor even in his hands. Nothing, momentarily, at least.
    The night was already passing and that’s why he went to rest. Tired. He was.
    When he woke up the same day it was.


    3.


    /And/ that day, the man for whom here something like biography, (life) description or what: in a moment he realized that: nothing firm he was holding; nor he was firmly holding to something; and not even something firm is holding him; neither in his life; nor to himself; nor in his hands; nothing; momentarily; importantly; at least.
    The night was at its passing. To take a rest was needed. To rest, he went.
    It was the same day, when he woke up.


    4.


    And, because a same day it was, what now something here, like, now this now that.


    PS. If you are interested in the glass from the first paragraph: it broke.

PPS. It fell out of his hands. Of the man for whom here, like that, was mentioned. While he was carrying it towards the cooler. Or towards the sink. In the same direction, whatever. Today exactly, maybe. However, it wasn’t his last glass. A whole set of exactly the same glasses he had. Thus: he was left five more, if in the meantime he didn’t break another one. But: that’s another story.


    Post Factum:
    If you are interested why in the second and in the third paragraph he didn’t use – let’s not say: holding: one of the left five exactly the same glasses: you are interested in already finished and banal things. Find an interest in something more up-to-date and essential.

Because the neighbours know
