It has been a long time since last time I wrote (and yes, I know tomorrow it’s actually Monday), but that’s because I had unexpected holidays which in any case is always good.This last week I watched three movies but none of them left a super deep impression on me. They were interesting though, so I still can say I enjoyed the time. Have you watched any interesting film lately? Was it interesting or a complete rubish? I’d be more than glead to read someone’s else opinion, so please, don’t be shy…
Always trying to discover more about myself. I’m the one, as you should be the one in your own lives. However, I still feel I don’t know myself very well. I’ve been so busy imitaing others I thought they could be my inspiration. I was also busy trying to change things I don’t like in myself with more and less success, depending on the topic. I believe I turned into a very disciplined person (I used to be so carefree as a child) and polite (I was really insolent when little) and now I even go running at least three times a week! (I hated sports for such a long time). But those are things I can do with myself, and they don’t make me feel closer to my true essence, my true being. (I’m being very phylosophical today). What are the three ideas you’d stand for? What are the sounds, the smells and tastes you’ll keep with you forever? What do you love most? What do you fear most? What are the three things you did by yourself? In which places are the roads you travel along?
My sister is in a veeery good humor lately. She used to be this shy and decent girl but not anymore… I remember when I used to tell here: let’s go to Alaska! let’s spend our next holidays in Hokkaidō! (I don’t like heat, you can see that). And she was like: “Weeeell, don’t know… maybe…” But this has been changing lately…
Yesterday, I went to Toledo. This is a medieval city that was Spain’s capital long time ago. I went there to see an exhibition about El Greco, who is a greek pinter from the 16th century. He was born in Crete but he spent most of his life in Spain. He’s very well-known here.
This week was really good for films as I watched three which were really interesting. The funny thing was two of them were set in the same country… France. So let’s speak about them. Have you watched anything interesting this week? Please, share, I’d delighted to listen!
Imagine one lovely day a powerful god or similar (let’s say it’s Koneko) appears in front of you. Wow, here it’s, Koneko in all his yellowish glory. Wow, what a surprise! It’s not an invention from this crazy Aislinn, it’s real!!… etc. But that’s not all. Koneko isn’t in front of you for anything. Koneko always have a purpose.
-Hey, Koneko! What’s up?
-Yeah, not so bad. By the way, I’ll come here to make all your wishes true.
-…yep, that’s it. you got it.
So, in that case, what would you ask Koneko for? You can choose between possible and impossible desires and dreams… There’s nothing this yellow cat cannot do! So think carefully about it because I tell you, this is a unique oportunity!
Today I’d like to introduce you to my sister. She’s this fine, beautiful young lady you can see in the picture above. She’s always dressed in pretty clothes. In this picture she’s also giving her black and white strike cat a stroll. (Have you noticed its blue and pink socks? My sis knitted them herself and gave them to the cat for its birthday…) But the question here (apart of my sister in general) is… can you guess what is inside the enormous bag she’s carrying? You may think about it a few seconds, minutes even. Is it full of books? Clothes? Video-games? Make a guess, please, and if you are right… well, I must say you’re my hero.
What is desired by everyone? Money? Happines? I don’t consider myself materialistic, so I’ll say happiness. But, what the hell is happiness? A kind of Nirvana just some special guys can reach? A state of mind? A way of living? Something you can get through something else? (Like money, sacrifices, by reaching your goals…) What is happines for you? What would you include in your own “happiness recipe”?
And again let’s talk about cinema. This week I didn’t watch so many films as usual, paradoxically the more free time the worst. I actually spent this last Sunday’s evening sleeping without feeling asleep. Bored to death. I like to think it’s due to the heat but someday I’ll face the true about myself, I’ll sail dark tides of my inner self until discovering the source of all this existential anguish. Someday.
In the mean time, I entertain myself with Hollywood films and more first-rate anime films…
Have you seen any interesting films lately? Any recommendation?
Yesterday I was in the Madrid’s Book Fair (La Feria del libro, vamos). Although this is an annual event here, it’s been like… six year since last time I went. Why?
1. Usually it’s deadly hot. And I can’t stand it.
2. Far too many people. I can’t stand it either.
3. They always have the same books, bet-selleres and all that, and it’s boring. Plus, lately books are pretty expensive, so I usually think over a lot before buying one. (I love libraries).
But this year it was different…
