Day 9, Red sweater and a dream of spring

“There's a grief that can't be spoken. There's a pain goes on and on. Empty chairs at empty tables, now my friends are dead and gone. Here they talked of revolution. Here it was they lit the flame. Here they sang about tomorrow, and tomorrow never came.” A man and a woman walk through the... Continue Reading →

Day 8, Observing a café and death to adverbs (not quite)

https://instagram.com/p/YUdkCyFbHA/ She stepped inside, uncertain. That café has caught her eye in the past week, but it was too rushed, too quick. Now, she’s alone, with no appointments to fulfil. There were people ordering their morning coffee, and she stood for a moment, observing. The price was listed, and though most of the menu is... Continue Reading →

Day 6, Big Bang Theory Life

My post is a little late today. I prefer writing in the mornings. But there were too many things going on. Sheldon was around today, so we had croissant and coffee breakfast while watching Big Bang Theory episodes. It’s unbelievable that he hasn’t really watched the Big Bang Theory before. He’s seen an episode or... Continue Reading →

Day 5, A brief love letter

Wer liebe sucht, findet sie nicht. Sie überfällt uns wenn wir es am wenigsten Erwarten. Alles Liebe zu unserem Ersten Jahrestag (Georg Sand) I took a photo and I wondered what Georg Sand is trying to say to me. I knew it was in German, but I had no idea what it’s trying to say....

Day 4, Loss at the Cemetry Gates

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knM7ow5vMPA Loss. Where do we begin when we talk of loss? It's so easy to talk of loss as an ending. But given time, you realise that the loss is just a beginning. It will be more sorrowful in the days, weeks, months, or even years to come. Yet, it will prepare us to who... Continue Reading →

Day 3, Commitment and Music

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=76bSvs3OfqI I still feel the cold, dry air that freezes my lungs. The bright, white snow that blinds my eyes. The bare trees… A sense of wonder. This is my memory of Tiergarten in Berlin. I’ve written about this place several times before. I will admit that I am not over it. And I will... Continue Reading →

Day 1: Unlock the Mind

I’ve almost forgotten that I signed up for Writing 101. I just wanted to check out what it is. Also, I’ve had trouble writing for the past few years and this feels like it would help me get back out there. I’ve been trying to write lately, some aren’t so good, admittedly. But I really...

Performing Romance

I’ve always been idealistic. I think it is the one thing in my life that I really want to maintain. I don’t want to end up jaded in the years to come. I want the belief that things could always get better, even if they’re already pretty great or even when everything seems hopeless. It... Continue Reading →

Bach in the Subways

We spent Saturday evening celebrating Johann Sebastian Bach’s 330th birthday. It’s been a while since I listened to orchestra music, so I knew I really wanted to go when I found out that there would be a free performance by the Manila Symphony Orchestra at Trinoma Mall. I’m grateful that Ian shared my interest in... Continue Reading →
