Random writing (8)

Prompt used: “I fell in love with a person who made me recognisable I thought that was the world that I wanted to pursue But having rushed about here and there, being misunderstood and being cheated I question whether the world underlying grown-ups always is always fleeting or inconsequent… The sky is very big butContinue reading “Random writing (8)”

Random writing (7)

Prompt used: “Until my eyesight becomes blessed      until I cannot breathe Let us be insightful in body and shadow” I never thought that I would be blessed with receiving the Sight, the gift of divining from dancing shadows. Shadows don’t dance, you say? But they do. They dance out of the corner of yourContinue reading “Random writing (7)”

Moonlake’s Lyrics (3)

A little change of pace for today’s lyrics post. Instead of liking it for delving into life philosophies and themes, this one drew me because of it told a tale, a somewhat wistful tale of love and reincarnation.

Moonlake’s Reading List (1)

This is not an actual new serial that I’m not starting, merely a teaser/foreshadowing thread for the Moonlake’s Book Discoveries series that I had promised to do every three months. I had just finished a non-fiction about falconry and Mongolia. It was really research for the fantasy novel based upon the Mongolians that I’m tryingContinue reading “Moonlake’s Reading List (1)”

Moonlake’s Lyrics (2)

Another making-up-for-word-count post. This one is a little morose but I love it because it contains one-liners that touches on the human truism about choice and again, the theme of gain and loss. It’s another Chinese old song (truth be told, the lyrics of old songs appeal to me more. 90% of new songs areContinue reading “Moonlake’s Lyrics (2)”
