“Is it possible for a person to love without wanting love back? Is anything so pure? Or is love, by its nature, a reciprocity, like oceans and clouds, an evaporating of seawater and replenishing of rain? “ -Alan Lightman, Reunion
two lovely new additions to my humble (but growing) curiouscreatures stash; am not really a necklace person but something about the ones from the curiouscreatures just seems to fit me like a T.
school’s out since friday, can you imagine half a sem’s gone? feels surreal, but sometimes life moves faster than you can keep up with, you just gotta hang on & enjoy the ride(?) i guess.
looking forward to book reading/ tv watching afternoons, spending time with the people i love and getting lost in a foreign city during this breather of a week. till then, stay safe bunnies.
“Who can really distinguish between the sea and what’s reflected in it? Or tell the difference between the falling rain and loneliness?” -H Murakami
i think i finally know what love is.
love is when like finally becomes a decision, when like becomes independent of emotions&circumstances, when like doesn’t demand anything in return.
& all your scars couldn’t make me love you less.
look what came in the mail today; mesh bralet from thescarletroom & a reptile print chiffon shirt that, with any luck (& lots of guts), i’ll b wearing for final crit that is, albeit too quickly, approaching in a week’s time :x
till then, stay safe (& happy) bunnies
A hauntingly beautiful quote from a “Man-Eating Cats”, a short story by H Murukami that i read recently. Murukami’s stories are sad, in the sense that they are real, sometimes with unresolved endings, endings that are definitely not cookie cutter. A lot like life really.
Somehow, sometimes when i feel sad about life & the way it works, reading a story of his seems to make me feel better, even though he tells tales of lovers never being together, dreams not materializing, life being, well, as it is. i guess it brings me comfort to know that sometimes life disappoints and things don’t turn out the way we want & we’re all jaded in this cold, cold world.
Ok, enough w the emospeak already lolz. On a brighter note, review went surprisingly well today, despite me feeling so lost (about DESIGN) the entire week. My tutor challenged my view that only the commonly accepted norms are beautiful, because there’s really a hidden beauty about the curious & the strange all along. Alot like life, really.
& a quote from him to end this entry:
“Beauty is not in the eye of the beholder. It may manifests itself in many different forms, but it is irresistibly clear.”
