SOMETHING SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT FOR TODAY

Hi everyone. I must admit, I have been all over the place lately. Somehow poetry, that used to live in my head, is taking time off and my mind is producing blank sheets of paper. That said, I’m still thinking positive and waiting for my muse to return. In the meanwhile, I wanted to share something with you, my dears.

As we all know, Christmas was that time, when magic was floating in the air, and everybody were dandy and cheerful. This guy though really had something to be happy about – he made his first short movie. One of the many that are about to come out in the future as series. Eldin became my friend here on WordPress by impressing me with his creativity, be it writing, painting, or any other talents that he has. Even though he changed his blogs here as often as he did socks, I think his current one is here to stay for a while. Go and pay him a visit.

Also, you should find 10 minutes to watch his movie (English subtitles option is available there in the corner). It’s beautiful and romantic in a non-cheesy way and yes, towards the end of the movie you can see a glimpse of my book in a scene. Ha ha! I had to mention that, c’mon!

Have a lovely weekend, everybody!

WORDPRESS GLITCH

Towards the end of this year, WordPress is turning its back on me completely! My comments end up in your spam boxes, your new posts don’t appear on my reader (hence why I thought you all were busy Christmas shopping!), and I only now realised how many of your writing I have missed.

No hard feelings, please.

I’ll have a busy weekend trying to catch up with all of you.

ANY TOM, DICK AND HARRY

I’m invisible.
Observing lives of other people
and picking fragments that I like
to make one of my own.
My sobs are loud,
but get mistaken for a thunder –
feared,
ignored,
dismissed
as something that will eventually pass.
Like a gulp of a windy day
in one’s mouth.

TRICK OR TREAT

With spooky things happening around the Halloween time, I guess my WordPress app went insane and decided to play a trick on me somehow publishing 50 odd posts I had saved in drafts. Ha, that wasn’t planned, but too late to cry over that spilled milk, right? Apologies for spamming your feed and annoying the living hell out of you, but it wasn’t me, it was technology being mean to me!

That said, I must admit that I missed you all and I’ll be trying to find time to go through the blogs I follow and catch up with you all, reply to comments, etc.

Twit to-woo, you all are awesome!
