[cause i’m not THAT self centred]

Recently somebody put forward
to me that age-old question:

“If a tree falls in the woods and
there is nobody around to hear
it fall, does it make a sound?”

My response being:

“Of course it does, don’t be
stupid”

And there you go.

[星今晚出來了嬰孩] [方括號]

I just had a strange experience, one that
is actually worth blogging about. About
half an hour ago I was on my laptop and
the lights went out. Not too amazing as
we have an electricity key in my house
and I’ve been using up alot of power all
day.

But then I realised that the street lights
were also out and upon further inspection
it was clear that there had been a complete
power cut on my street. Excellent. Because
I was on my laptop it didn’t worry me much.
But what did worry me was that it was too
dark to find my camera.

[reason being for wanting my camera is that
black outs on my street are rare and I wanted
to capture it]

So with a little encouragement from my
friend Holly, I rummaged around for my
camera and found it. The thing is when
i got outside, it was totally dark, all
around me all I could hear were alarms
and dogs barking. It was actually quite
post-apocolaptic. But alas I got my
camera out and propped it against
whatever was around me and took some
shots. [it was too dark to find my tripod
as well]

Then, as I was photogrpahing the lights
came on, but not as their standard orange
hue that they give off but a blood red.
The whole was really quite strange because
in the middle of it all. [because of the lack
of lights]. The stars came out. The most
I’d seen inna while. It was all quite alot
to take in.

And then I came back indoors intent
on blogging this strnage event and to
continue my talk with Holly, it actually
became apparent that I should have used
the video camera. But if I had done that
I wouldn’t have got shots like this one.

[the stars came out tonight baby]

[i think this experience will leave
me hoping for black outs more often]

[as i look out of my bedroom window]

Right now the weather seems pleasent,
albeit from my bedroom window, it’s
not extremely sunny but then again it’s
nowhere near gloomy

It’s more a really thin cloud from which
the bright blue sky can easily be seen
behind it.

To be honest I have never been a fan of
what usually coined to be ‘good’ weather.
The whole, hot with the sun beating down
never appealed to me, even as a kid.

No, what I have ALWAYS enjoys [I asked
my mum and she says I’ve been this way
since I was a kid] is when it’s sunny but
cold and windy at the same time. Those
days are great, they usually appear in
Winter, so when those days do arrive they
are quite short lived.

Also, adding to this, I have alway prefered
Winter to Summer, the idea of wrapping
myself up in a cover or duvet whilst
drinking hot chocolate seemed much more
appealing than trying to get myself cool.

But, today, I am actaully stuck inside, left to
observe the day as it slowly turns to night.
Not because i am a scared recluse or
anything like that. It’s just that I have no
money and nowhere to go. Till tomorrow
where I have to do some portraits for a
friend of mine.

Actually watching the weather today
will help my prepare for tomorrow.

[you see, i have this song]

Although my love for music is
well known and documented
[somewhere or other], there are
only a few songs that take me.

That was a strange way to describe
it, I’ll try again, there only seem to
be a few songs that [whilst I’m
listening to them] I can close my
eyes and forget whatever is
happening no matter how drastic
it seems at the time.

Some songs make me thing of better
days, some of brighter tomorrows.
The majority though, seem to be linked
to a particular time or person [or feeling
for/to that person].

But I do have one or two songs
that when I listen to them take
me nowhere at all.

I become completely at ease and there
is only the music.

I urge you to listen to this song, with
earphones and and with your eyes closed.


[when I listen to this song all is
considered and at the same time I
don’t think about anything]

[kinda doesn’t make any sense]
[oh well]

[fake.love.note]

So, I was at work on Sunday and as
I was walking past the kitchen at
work and I saw Izzy with a pen and
notepad.

“What are you writing babe?” I asked,
Izzy then turned around and said that
she had no idea what to write. So I
replied;

“Write me a love note, oh, and make
sure it’s in pencil”

So here it is, a lovely fake love note
=]

lovenote

I thought it was quite pleasant, lol

Also thought it would make a nice
celebratory post as this is post
number 100. I never thought it
last this long.

[264] [taking me home]

As the newspaper slowly crawls over my
feet
Forcing me to look up and examine
where it was I had been
It’s quarter past two in the city
and the streets are almost bare
It’s this time I love, this place I love.
More than anywhere.

This city would be home,
if I would let it be.
But something always calls me back,
My home, constantly calling me.

So, I stay for the night sometimes,
and take it all in.
The city where I want to go,
to all the places I’ve already been.

[another short poem]

I slept for fourteen hours
And still only dreamt about you
I’ve been sleeping for miles
these days it seems,
Because it’s all that I know to do

Since I’ve known you,
my thoughts and feelings
are on fire.

A lust for life,
I was yet to know,
Firmly gripping all of
life’s desires.

And even though your
gone.
For reasons neither of
us could foresee.
I’ve kept those feelings
and dreams close to my
heart.

Because in my dreams and
in my heart you are always
with me.
