mid week bumming

Calendar girl – Stars
Le Chocolat at The Club

The jump from the overdose of pressure and stress to having absolutely nothing to do can be quite a big leap. A couple of weeks back at this time on a Wednesday, I’ll be fighting the Z-monster busy churning out some sort of report, or if im lucky, a nice piece of writing. and now, it feels like I’ve taken a big leap into the vast ocean, where everything seems so carefree and the opportunities are endless.

Le Chocolat is a pretty nice quaint little cafe. I’d much prefer sitting outdoors but the sun looks like its out with a vengeance today. I’d never expect so many people to have nothing to do on a Wednesday afternoon, and just bumming around. Apart from the rather odd music choice for a cafe, yes, it’s blasting club hits like flo rida, I must say it is a rather nice place to sit and let the afternoon go by. The layered chocolate cake’s pretty good, a bit on the sweet side, but with a nice mix of textures between the layers.

I actually did not realize how much I miss writing until I took a writing test a couple of weeks back. In this line, press releases, media pitches, briefing documents are churned out on a daily basis. But how much thought and creative thinking actually goes into developing one? I do find myself guilty of simply going with the flow at times, and staying on the safer side of things, just to please the people around you. Being safe hardly delivers outstanding results. How many success stories have you heard actually result from taking the tried and tested method? Perhaps this is the reason why boutique agencies are currently on the rise, and also possibly explains why Apple’s bold enough to create their own market share and their own voice, as opposed to stealing space from its counterparts.

the wild flower in a field of daisies

 

you’re brave, you smile.
a smile that masks everything,
a smile so real, it seems like there’s no paddling
beneath that calm surface
but still waters run deep
and
till we lay our heads on strawberry fields
to bask in the warm sunshine
living like there’s no tomorrow
living like today’s your last
living like ever moment counts
living like you don’t have a pass

what’s love when you ain’t got a lifetime
what’s there for you to lose
when you’ve lost it all

i get these weird tingly feelings,
every time i see couples holding hands
part of me wishes to be a part of that cast
part of me will never understand
the things beyond comprehension
the things beyond anyone’s control
the reasons to justify actions
the story never told

so you fight, for what’s left to be fought
yet you find yourself back at the start of the line
cashing the wind and caching the leaves of autumn
that glimmer of hope that helps us sleep at night
thinking there’s sunshine after rain tomorrow,
perhaps the storm has yet to approach
maybe it is already gone
the champagne’s popped,
bubbly to go around

a catharsis, to fill a void, to share and my canvas

Isn’t it amazing, how 17 can be?
Isn’t it so exciting, just like romance novel’s scenes.
Colourful pictures on the wall,
always waiting for the telephone call.
A cry in the dark, a broken heart, a first-time kiss, I’ve seen it all.
