mine is the sun.
when it rises dripping from
the sea when it falls like honey on
the trees when it swallows up
clouds my soul moves with it.
mine is you.
when you lift your eyes
when you look straight ahead
when you try to speak my
heart moves with you.
i like fridays, rainy days, proud cats, black & white photographs, children's books, short stories and movies that most people would never see. Music serves me
justice on sad days (Adele, The Kooks, Mumford & Sons are gems) and genuine smiles are a must-have.
i'm not a particularly big fan of anime but goodness.. Grave of the Fireflies actually made me cry.
so mysis (see. u're in a special colour. happie now? so dots larh. bah.) only showed me a super short clip of it. but STILL. can u imagine if i actually watched the WHOLE show? i'ld probably need boxes and boxes of tissue to wipe my nose. sigh.
if someone has the vcd that i can borrow or even better, be able to watch it with me (to pass me the tissue while i sit there and bawl my eyes out.. ahahh..), please do okay. thankies. (:
Seita 14 years old. With his father away at the Navy, he becomes the responsible member of the household. He soon has to see to the burial of his Mother by himself, becoming his sister's protector and provider. He looks after his younger sister Setsuko like a parent, trying his best to keep her safe. When she's sad, he tries to cheer her up. He has a stubborn streak, stemming from pride perhaps. And the war has forced him to grow up- too fast, too soon.
Setsuko 4 years old. She simply adores her older brother Seita, and is eager to help him whenever she can. Initially a happy, innocent and naive little girl at the start of the film. At times, she doesn't seem to understand that a war is actually taking place around her. However, this innocence is perhaps shed when she realises that her Mother has died- even without anyone directly telling her so- she cries, knowing that her Mother was never coming back.
After suffering so much loss, she becomes terrifed of losing her brother. However, he would be the one to lose her.
