In the middle of Know-where

I searched everywhere and I couldn’t find you. I really looked. I truly did.

I looked up to the sky and the clouds were higher than usual, so high that I even thought to be seeing the outer space flashing thru them.

I faced down to the ground and all the seeds started to shake. I felt the warm heart of the Earth breathing under the sticky soles of my shoes; and you were still not there.

I turned my head left and then right. And then slowly I started to spin around until I stopped to stare into the Far East; and all I could see was just another lemon tree.

I gazed into the Wild Wild West and yet no news but flying leafs and dusty whistling roads that didn’t show me your face.

I looked all over again. North, South, East, West and in between. I rolled, I jumped, I blinked and waived and still no sign of you.

I couldn’t even find my own way.

I sat down and cried.

It must be true what people say: lovers are always lost.


Philosophical Friday

So, after a couple of Friday morning emails back and fwd with a remote guy...
Guy (G): "What did you do to the weather? It was supposed to be cloudy."
Me (M): "I brought my Friday mood today."
G: "Explain a bit"
M: "I'm just happy. It smells like weekend everywhere."
G: "Going to any party?"
M: "Maybe some salsa."
G: "I would join but sometimes my feet don't do the things I want."
M: (ah, the double left-feeted type) "Oh, I understand. Well, you can always drink."
G: "Well, there is always a first time for everything. Don't judge before you have done it"
M: "Ah, you wanna go philosophical? Alright."
G: "Yes, I always go philosophical on Fridays. I call it the Friday's mood. Wanna join?"
M: "I would but I'm dealing with a win-win situation."
G: "Explain more about that win-win situation"
M: "I'm having a fight with myself."
G: "Ha-ha. And what is the fight about?"
M: "Two beer or not to beer."
G: "Ah, that is a simple question"

The End.

Enjoy your weekend my amigos!


These Are My Twisted Words...too

Since I’ve been writing a lot in the past month I will keep it short…NOT.

My reply to the people that have asked me where I have been and what I have been doing is this:

“I’ve become an aunt of two beautiful baby boys, also the proud auntie of a lovely puppy, rejected an elephant, kissed a toad, moved from office, finished a project at work, visited the vampires and wrote a novel of more than 50,000 words in one month, i.e. 30 days. Now, what have you done?”

Someone told me that numbers were not important, that it was more the substance what mattered. I’d like to believe that but since I’m an engineer and a geek, numbers are very important to me. So on my way to work I wrote this person a letter and it goes like this:

Dear friend,

I’ve been 25 for 2 times and to some people that doesn’t mean 50 but 26. I am a 36; a 38 and sometimes a 42. I hang out with 27, 44 and 30 too. I feel 25 and 36.5 but I’m definitely sure that I am 155; although some people say that 100 suit me good. In some places I am 5 and 1; and in some others 16088758. Right now I’m heading 33 but I wish to be at 4, and to be honest I am inside 167 on the 18 at 910. I’ve worn 248 and 243 but at the end I decided to go natural and stay at 003. I’ve used 212 but now I’m on #5 and I like it. Maybe in 12 I’ll be back to 2011 after 14 times here and there. It’s now 848 and I need some food.

Goodbye my friend. I know you don’t like numbers but it’s good to know that I can count on you.
