you just might make me believe


what's your mode of transport?
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.

'She waited and waited, leaning against a tree, and as she stood there it seemed to her that the tree became soft and yielding, and lowered its branches. Suddenly the branches twined around her, and they were two arms. When she turned to look the tree was a handsome young man, who held her in his arms.'

From The Forestwife Trilogy: 'The Old Woman in the Forest', Grimms' Tales for Young and Old, translated by Ralph Manheim (Victoe Gollancz Ltd. 1979)






for the 56384th time, i'm NOT lovesick. was reading a novel about Robin Hood and Lady Marian. can't help feeling sentimental. ahah. sigh.


anyway.
i've been reading all my favourite fantasy novels of Lady Knights and Mages and magic that i've grown up with, like Tamora Pierce's Immortals Quartet and Juliet Marillier's Daughter of the Forest trilogy. can't tell you exactly why i like them though. maybe it's cos of the genuinely believably real heroines, believing that perhaps i could be one of them. or maybe it could be cos they transport me into a world where i believe anything's possible, outside of the rigid unbending boxes that we're thrust to live in. or maybe it's because of the fact that no matter what immense trials and tribulations the characters endure, there's always the certainty that the outcome would be for the best, whether good and tragic. ahah. -rubs nose- cliche i know. but hell, i should at least be allowed to hold on to my childhood, or what remains of it, before i HAVE to grow up.

right. there i go, rambling again.


if you've been wondering what i've been up to these past weeks, i've actually been out, more times than i can count, and getting home too late and too tired to blog. i guess you can say that i've been true to my promise of hanging out with the people whom i MOST want to be around with but haven't got a chance to, til now. am taking a nice long break, reading the books that i've been longing to read so the blog's gonna be kinda down for a few more days, sorry about that. my camera's going weird on me so i can't share much of where i've been to, so sadly, no pics, for now at least. bear with it for a while and the insightful me will be back, more insighful than ever i pray.

i'll recount my 'adventures' soon. i hope. ahah. in the meantime, feel free to look through my friends' blogs.. it'll be surprising what you can learn from them. (:

oh yearh. to my cousin danial, i know you're like really angry with me and feeling super left out cos we didn't include you during our outing but i SWEAR i had no idea that you were going overseas at that time cos when i finally called your house that friday, your dad said that you guys were going to a wedding on that sunday; he didn't mention anything about you going to Sarawak for the weekend. really sorry. and you may argue that i could have changed the date of the outing but by the time i do, we'ld probably have to wait til next year cos matin has ns, hariz has to go to aust, fahrul has scouting responsibilities & the others probably have school stuff to attend to. maybe we'll have a mini gathering soon ok.

and stop trying to 'commit suicide'. it's plain dumb and you know it. you're starting to sound worse than someone i know.

honesty is the best policy
