Happy Birthday

 

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

– e.e. cummings

Justin’s desk

This makes me smile. Even Newton is tucked away back there.

A Song

I sing a sad song –
sadder that the sunset’s walk
in the city streets;
I feel grief in my blood
flowering from some hidden spring;
my friends, we die –
we sail into the end
without pausing to say goodbye;
our dreams, hopes, loves
come to an end
like footprints in the sand
chewed by the desert.

I sing a happy song –
happier than the sunrise
on another shore;
happier than the smile
a birthday-child smiles;
happier than a new kiss;
I feel a stubborn joy
conquering my blood;
my friends, we live –
we live each instant
to its deepest cores, collect
its treasures, trifle with its secrets
lave ourselves within its ecstasy.

Of death and life I shall
a happy/sad sad/happy song sing…

– Shaikh Ghazi Al-Qusabi

 

One month

One month ago, right around this time, while I was sleeping, everything changed. And now my life is divided into before that moment and after that moment. I am sure the after part will get eventually better, but I definitely preferred the before bit. I still can’t really believe it is over.

6 April 2012.

Celloboxing with Kevin Olusola

This made me happy. But for the moment, even being happy makes me a bit sad.
