I saw De-Lovely last night, a very strange love story. Suddenly, near the bitter-sweet ending, I felt terribly sad. I was crying for the love I lost. I remember asking my self what I want – do I want him back? And the answer was no. I stopped wanting him back a long time ago. But I so miss to closeness, the intimacy, the tenderness you feel when you’re around the person you love. It was never perfect, but at least it was at times!
I would do anything to have that feeling again. Maybe someday it will come my way! I pray for it, more than for anything else…Yes, love is the core of all things and without it you can never feel fully accomplished.
I next watched “Raise your voice”, a nice movie with teenager artist and with a very happy ending. It made me feel better, as I expected. I also finished Dune Messiah and Marguerite Yourcenar’s Oriental Tales. Dune Messiah just continued the overwhelming feeling brought by this possible future with all its details and all its worlds and ways. The Oriental Tales are well written, but it kind of stops there. It’s nice to remember the fallen Greek gods and the Indian goddess Kali and to be surrounded by the scent of Chinese tales that always seem simple but get deeper while you think about them. But I really didn’t consider it a great short story book. It’s just good!
