    Day 17 -- Like the tricube, the magic 9 is a newer form and relatively unknown. In fact, I couldn’t find a creator of the form, though it appears to have been inspired by a poet misspelling the word “abracadabra.” This 9-line poem doesn’t have any rules as far as meter or subject matter–just a rhyme scheme: abacadaba.

That’s right! Just remove the r’s from “abracadabra,” and boom! A new poetic form; and after writing my first magic 9, I can report that they’re fun to write

The Next

Perhaps, I should sit for a spell,
though maybe I should stand,
for I want to whisper and yell
that she is mine, “O, she is mine!”
Or am I hers? I cannot tell
if I am one thing or the next
since that brief moment that I fell
for blue eyes like a wand
casting an ancient, binding spell.

    To end up alone⁣
in a tomb of a room⁣
without cigarettes⁣
or wine⁣
just a lightbulb⁣
and a potbelly,⁣
grayhaired,⁣
and glad to have⁣
the room.⁣
⁣
...in the morning⁣
they're out there⁣
making money:⁣
judges, carpenters,⁣
plumbers, doctors,⁣
newsboys, policemen,⁣
barbers, car washers,⁣
dentists, florists⁣
waitresses, cooks,⁣
cab drivers..⁣
⁣
and you turn over⁣
to your left side⁣
to get the sun⁣
on your back⁣
and out⁣
of your eyes.⁣

    R e t a h í l a (1 de 4)

Aprovechando que estamos en fechas de verbenas veraniegas, haré hoy un alto en mi habitual escritura de hechos y ficciones con tintes dramáticos. Y no sólo eso, sino que además, como doy por hecho que llegados ya este punto del texto, apenas una o dos personas - de la veintena que ha visto de modo fugaz la foto que la anticipa - habrá llegado a leer estas líneas, he decidido escribir hoy de un modo más canalla y desvergonzado, auspiciándome en este anonimato público, para explicar los efectos que tiene el bocadillo del “pollo loco”. Si, si. 
El caso es que hace unos días fueron las fiestas de San Lorenzo, que son las fiestas de Lavapiés, las cuales resultan fechas variopintas, “recomendablesísimas”, oiga, porque tanto puedes encontrarte un grupo de chulos y chulapas cantando “Madrid, Madrid, Madrid” en frente de un Carrefour, como a un trío cubano cantando a Compay en un margen de la calle Argumosa. Y no sólo eso. ¿Qué eres ferviente seguidor del santo que quemaron en la parrilla? Pues puedes seguir la procesión que lleva su imagen por todo el barrio. Aquí hay para todos. Y para todas, claro.

    Two of the best writing advices I have ever heard are:
a. Set crazy low goals. Like writing ten words a day. That'll get you started and you will feel accomplished, which will keep you going. Before you know it, you'll have written 1000 words.
b. Think short term. Don't think of your story as a book. It's a story. And you are writing it right now. You're not publishing or worrying about agents. So, what can you do to write and work on your project RIGHT NOW!

I think those words of wisdom have gotten me this far and they will carry me much farther!
Keep writing! You're doing great!

—不朽

沒交過男女朋友,很奇怪嗎?
-----------------
其實從小到大
我的朋友並不少
不論是男是女,幾乎都能成為談得來的夥伴
但,忘記從什麼時候開始
開始可以聽到一些聲音
-----------------
「欸欸!你不覺得他超級帥的嗎?」
「你是不是喜歡他啊~羞羞臉!」
偶爾玩真心話大冒險
還會出現一些莫名奇妙的問題
要你非得選出班上一位同學做為你的對象
我一定得回答嗎?其實每個我都不喜歡
要不是你們太瘋癲,我早就選大冒險了。
-----------------
於是乎,這份情感似乎已變了質
不再那麼地單純
當你靠誰近了一點
免不了會有些耳語出現
「你喜歡他吧?最近跟他走那麼近~」
「我可以幫你問問看他對你的感受啊!」 「不用啦,他只是我的好朋友而已。」
-----------------
我從沒認真地回覆過這些問題
如果認真地回答了,反而會帶來更多不必要的誤會

畢竟選項之內,沒有一個是對的。
-----------------
並不是這些人不夠好,而是沒有真實的感受
感受不到那份屬於戀愛的悸動、
也不懂得別人口中所謂的「我願意他為了赴湯蹈火」
是怎樣的感受
-----------------
「我很奇怪嗎?」
時不時地懷疑著自己
是不是沒在高中轟轟烈烈的談一場戀愛
就算不上一個正常人?
甚至有人問過我是不是同性戀
坦白說,我不承認、也不否認
原因很簡單
對於現在的自己而言,我很確信還沒遇到對的緣分
自然沒有正確答案。
-----------------
說來也是神奇,這樣的經歷反而成了別人眼裡奇妙的存在
自我的懷疑也成了一種自信的確立
其實我一點也不特別,而是想讓自己更完整一點
如果他不是我對的人,浪費時間又有什麼意義呢?
-----------------
或許哪天真的會有個對我好的人出現
於此同時,我只想把一切專注在自己的身上
讓自己成為一個更好的人,永遠是最好的投資。

Morning journaling by the window, waiting for the light to stream in. We’ve been experiencing a moody overcast in KL lately, due to smokey haze blowing in from Indonesia’s forest fires. Unfortunately it has become an annual affair. The quote seems apt on a morning like this.
.
Some days I wake up to this sinking feeling. It happens sometimes. It comes and goes and I usually fight it off with some journaling over coffee. It is this indescribable feeling; a deep sense of sadness, not triggered by anything but yet, everything. Today is such a day. I don’t talk about it quite enough. I want to be a positive ray of light but some days are just harder than others and it is important to acknowledge such emotions than to suppress it and pretend everything is okay.
.
If you experience the same feeling, take some time to reflect. Write it down. Talk to a friend. Even if it’s incoherent and you don’t quite understand it. It’s good to let it out. Take comfort that this too shall pass.
.
xoxo love and light to all.

    #歐北遊歷東歐四國 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
今天走到了第四個國家奧地利,錢幣又要從克朗換成歐元。出國旅遊的機會稀少,所以我比較崇尚一次踩點多個國家,有特別喜歡哪一個地方可以記錄下來,再規劃未來自助深入旅遊。這趟旅行很多時間在拉車,所以我也有許多時間可以回顧每天拍的照片,寫下一些自己看到的事物,做一些比較長篇的紀錄。
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
我覺得跟團某種程度來說是非常有趣的,如果不要自己耍孤僻,願意開啟健談的開關,其實是可以交到很多朋友的。尤其我特別喜歡和有錢人聊天,和他們對談可以發現他們的金錢觀,和自己世界的價值顯得天差地遠,便會有種衝擊感讓自己獲得更努力的拼勁。
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
緣分也相當奇妙,一個旅行團大概由十幾組小團體組成。我們這一團有三對母女,其中一對女兒今年會考結束,上高中前想要出國旅遊走走;另一組的女兒在寧波唸英國的大學,可以得到英國與中國的雙文憑;另外一對的女兒從高中就在美國唸書,現在在UC Davis唸CS,我弟唸的科系就是CS,我唸的科系也是資訊相關,所以我們三個昨天在庫倫洛夫CK小鎮的下午茶聊了兩個多小時,從SAT聊到GRE,也討論了很多美國與台灣CS課程安排的不同,妹妹說她爸爸是交大資工畢業的,我弟就這麼幸運遇到了學長。
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
另外有兩組四人家庭,其中一個家庭的兒子有天穿了件NCCU的T-shirt,這也讓我和他產生了連結,他是政大廣電系大三的學生。另一組家庭的小孩是唸華盛頓中學(你們知道多有錢才能唸華盛頓嗎),他們因為也是台中人所以有更多的共通點連結起來。另外兩位互為同事,她們是國中老師,這次跟我出國遊玩的是大阿姨、小阿姨,她們兩位也都是老師,在職業上也有許多聊得來的話題。
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
透過旅遊團可以認識一些平常不可能接觸到的階級人物,可以透過他人看見另一個世界,更可以藉由交流分享生活,拓展另一份人脈存摺。

    • I met you in a bar in the east village of New York City and, like gravity, something inside me fell into place.
.
you have been my best friend ever since.
.
I began to learn you over teacups of vodka, pouring secrets to one another as we stood against red-carpet walls. I heard you read poetry for the first time and it was a song sung from someplace familiar. (I have listened for it every day since.) you were soft curls and lullaby lips and more grace than I could imagine.
.
maybe everything doesn’t come down to voice memos at midnight; can’t be counted by the months I spent missing you or the ones by your side. but you held my hand and I learned a lesson in family. I learned another when I saw your face in those of your children. I split my life across an ocean and, still, coming back to you feels like coming home. still, something about the way you laugh tells me that I had been searching for something all my life and this was it. this was it and you were it and I am never letting you go.
.
still, when someone asks me about miracles, I tell them about you.
