Constant reminder Jul 29, 2005

I recently bought a notebook to get more work done.

Incidently, it appears that I get nickel allergy on my right hand wrist from excessive use of my notebook.
At first, this was simply annoying, but then the spots started to rearrange themselves from a perfect round circle to .... a heart shape!

Now I have on my right hand wrist a constant reminder to mind my heart and not overwork myself.

Sounds and life Jul 31, 2005

Listening to the sounds, it was as if someone had shot an arrow into the air and it had not fallen to earth.Such an ecstasy! Hooking the window back, the brightness of the day made her blink. The sunlight filled the room with a yellow haze.It seemed that time had slipped among her fingers. The street full of cars, her heart full of hope was no longer a dirty grey.
She smiled nonchalantly. Through the open window the voice of life was coming in again. Her heart sank. She was awake again: s

To The Green Garden. Aug 4, 2005

Once I saw a Green Garden...
A dream-world of trees, birds and small animals.
It was hidden between the green hills very far from the road.
And no evil could ever find it.
The life was beautiful and unruffled there.
It opened me freedom and happiness.
Love and kindness.
I wanted to live there until my days drip out.
I thought that any eye sees the beauty through the God.
But I was so wrong.
There are eyes that see the beauty through

There are eyes that see the beauty through Money.
Now this garden is being ruined.
The evil doesn`t always need a road to come...

The day I lost my heart on a flight of stairs Aug 5, 2005

I remember him crying something as I walked up the stairs, and I looked at the black hole where my heart used to be. Then there was silence…and peace. ”Keep it, I won’t be needing it anymore”.

The hole eventually closed and I haven’t felt anything since.

There are days when I miss my heart and think of posting an add on the newspapers — heart lost in a flight of stairs, if found please return to —, but then, I think it over and wonder if I could ever cope
