Year: 2012 (page 1 of 3)

Right now…

and right here, life is good. 2013, don’t let me down.


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.
