The other time when I recall to have stayed up all night watching the world out there unfold on TV, was when our communist president Ceausescu was executed back in December 1989. I was 11 then, a terrified child spectator.
And then it was last night. I must have fallen asleep at around 2-3 am, and woke up at 6 am, CNN still on. I don’t know what to make of this world today. I am a bit terrified still, I think.
Most of the time, we live disconnected.
