She is a Book

She is a breathing book

each night I touch her pages

delicately turn to find

her heart in letters

written by her hand…

 

Scent of vanilla

soft and sensuous

unveiling another thought

another smiling memory

another intimate piece of her…

 

And I read with such abandon

across her pages

my fingers trailing

her soft paper skin…

 

In her sighs

she speaks of

stories and sonnets

history and fantasy

blue skies and silvery silks…

 

I hear her voice

in the pages

wanting to know her

every line

every word

every letter…

 

Now I take her into me

share my book with her

until we know

can read each glance

each whisper

each touch…

 

She is a book

and I love to read her pages…

10 citate despre scris – partea I

Pentru ca imi place sa citesc si imi place sa scriu, am decis sa plec urechea si la cei care fac asta ca meserie. Consider ca sunt sfaturi bune (presupun, pentru ca inca nu le-am pus in aplicare).

10. „Abandon the idea that you are ever going to finish. Lose track of the 400 pages and write just one page for each day, it helps. Then when it gets finished, you are always surprised.” – John Steinbeck

9. „If the artist does not fling himself, without reflecting, into his work, as Curtis flung himself into the yawning gulf, as the soldier flings himself into the enemy’s trenches, and if, once in this crater, he does not work like a miner on whom the walls of his gallery have fallen in; if he contemplates difficulties instead of overcoming them one by one… he is simply looking on at the suicide of his own talent.” – Honore de Balzac Continue reading

10 citate care m-au impresionat – partea a IIa

Alte citate care mi-au marcat existenta!

Inainte de toate, o intrebare: nu vi s-a intamplat vreodata sa cititi niste vorbe spuse de cineva, care sa va modifice radical si absolut modul de a gandi? Urasc cand mi se intampla asta! Simt ca am pierdut atatia ani fara acel inteles pe care abia il descopar. Ma face sa ma simt vulnerabila, dar trece cand imi amintesc ca ma bucur pentru ca exista oameni inteligenti care au ceva de spus in lumea asta. Sau au avut, ma rog.

10. „Da’ ce, un roman trebuie sa fie neaparat un lucru frumos?”

- Frumusete si intristare, Yasunari Kawabata

9. „Ne traim viata cu cei carora le suntem indatorati, cu cei care ne-au nascut copiii, cu cei de care, din cauza nepasarii noastre, ne-am legat, sau continuam sa cautam ceea ce ne indeamna inima?”

- Nu-s genul asta de fata!, Catherine Alliott

8. „Cand esti cu adevarat contra cronometru, sa faci ca fiecare secunda sa conteze este o arta. Pur si simplu, potrivesti fiecare lucru pe care-l ai de facut cu masura cuvenita de timp.”

- Sus, deasupra lumii, Paul Bowles Continue reading

Reguli de convietuire intre Femei si Barbati

Ieri a fost o zi grea pentru mine. A trebuie sa fac curatenie in computer si sa-mi mut tot bagajul meu emotional si cultural din ultimii 10 ani pe laptop. A fost o experienta placuta, pentru ca am gasit tot felul de tampenii, ba chiar si aceste reguli de convietuire. Sunt sigura ca m-au amuzat atunci cand le-am descoperit, la fel cum ma amuza si acum cand le recitesc.

Enjoy!

1. The Female always makes THE RULES.

2. THE RULES are subject to change without notice.

3. No Male can possibly know all THE RULES.

4. If the Female suspects the Male knows all THE RULES, she must immediately change some or all of THE RULES.

5. The Female is never wrong. Continue reading
