“Good” Memory

I’m a person with very good memory. I remember events and details others can’t recall. Some say good memory is definitely a gift, but at times I wonder if it isn’t a curse…

Remembering stuff others don’t can make you feel like you live in a world of your own, and that can drive you crazy enough to consider having dreamed what you claim to have lived. How I wish that was the worst of it! What really hurts about remembering it all is precisely being unable to forget all the pain you’ve gone through. Although it’s true that pain makes us wiser, we must be able to reap the lessons from it and then move on. ‘Forgive and forget’, so they say.

Throughout my short life, I’ve reached the conclusion that good memory becomes a curse when it thwarts your moving on…

The Weirdest of Dreams

I had the weirdest of dreams last night. I dreamed it was Christmas, and we  – my family and some friends, I guess –  were spending it at a cosy cottage located near a wide green valley.  There was a cave on one of the mountain sides, with a waterfall inside. It was such a picturesque spot. 

It was a mild starry night and everything was quiet. A while before midnight, I went outside and ran towards the cave in the valley and waited outside. After a while, Merlin appeared in front of me. It wasn’t the first time I saw him, as I knew where and when to find him. He was like a second father to me, but I only got to meet him on special dates. We had a short conversation which I cannot fully recall. I can only remember that I asked him about the waterfall and his world, and he said I couldn’t visit often. However, he said I was allowed to seek him in times of need and placed a silver diamond-shaped amulet around my neck. He told me the amulet could take me where he was with just a touch and focused thought. Nevertheless, should something happen to the amulet, I was allowed to go through the waterfall into his world. Otherwise, I shall meet him in that spot each Christmas and New Year.

After our short conversation, Merlin disappeared and I joined the crowd at the cottage. I was overwhelmed, as everytime I saw him. I remember someone asking why I was wearing so many amulets. I explained that the silver one was a gift from Merlin, and the gold one, heart-shaped with little yellow diamonds, had to do with Jesus. And then there was my everyday necklace with a moon and half a heart with the letter L, for my love for the moon and for my fiancé.

I remember nothing else of that Christmas. I remember something about New Year, though. We were at the same cottage, and I did the same thing I had done on Christmas midnight: I went for Merlin. But this time he wasn’t there. I remember looking up to the sky and seeing the stars align to form the figure of a snake swallowing up buildings and people. Suddenly, I remembered my conversation with Merlin: there was a huge evil orange snake devouring everything, and it was heading for our country. It had already been to the Middle East, and now it was coming here. Energy use was what drove her way. Merlin hadn’t showed up because he was warning people! I hurried back to the cottage and told everyone to leave immediately and turn off every electrical device. When we arrived at the city, I could see drawings on the building walls similar to the celestial warnings I had just seen at the valley. Panic-stricken faces were looking at the sky and pointing at the drawings. In the distance, I could see flames and fumes. The snake was coming. But I knew it might not be the end; we could fool the snake if we stopped using energy for a day, but that required all citizens to do a joint effort they had never done before. My dream ended there, waiting for a miracle. 

Facebook

Due to my dad’s profession, I moved from city to city quite frequently. That meant leaving good friends behind and making new ones all the time. Everytime I moved, I kept missing my old friends real bad, so much so that I used to fantasize of a place where I could have all my friends together, no matter where they were from. It was some sort of Heaven-like place where everybody got along with one another.

When Facebook came along, I knew that was as close as I could ever get to that place on Earth.

Breaking the Ice

I know I said I would write sometimes. The thing is, I’m not used to sharing my thoughts and feelings; I’m the shy kind. Besides, when I do have something to say, I’m not in the right place in the right time, so to speak…so I never type a lot of good stuff that crosses my mind, and that’s a pity. That said, as paradoxical as it may seem, I created a blog, so there must be a reason why I did so…

I’m a girl who has always thought a lot about everything. Maybe I just cannot conceive life without reflecting on it constantly. I have a pressing need to understand facts and reasons, otherwise I cannot accept them. Problem is I sometimes tend to overthink, and that’s far from healthy. But sometimes, once in a while, I get good thoughts worth sharing. That’s what this blog is going to be about; I’m not going to write about my private life whatsoever, though of course you will find traces of who I am in my writings, merely because my writings will be the product of my own vision of this world.

I’m not going to advertise this blog because I believe it is better if you just stumble upon it. Though I’m a Catholic, I believe everything happens for a reason, which shows I somehow believe in Fate. I’m a romantic, so I guess those mixed beliefs shouldn’t puzzle you.

I hope the contents of this blog appeal to your soul. Feel free to comment in any language you speak, though bear in mind that I can only understand English, Spanish, Portuguese and a bit of Italian.

Greetings,

PS: Here’s a link for you to read about the origin of the phrase “break the ice”. Yeah, I’m the inquisitive and curious kind too…

Hello everyone!

Hi everyone! Welcome to my new blog! I had a MSN Live Space but I had to transfer it here in order to keep it. Anyway, I spent quite a long time without posting, so I’m taking this as a new beginning. I won’t be posting on a regular basis; I’ll just post whenever I have something to say. Well, feel free to comment in whatever language you speak -I speak English, Spanish, Portuguese, and a bit of Italian. I’ll be writing mostly in English, as I want people from all over the world to understand what I write.

See you around! 🙂

Song lyrics
People tell me, "you stay where you belong"
But all my life I’ve tried
To prove them wrong
 
They say I’m looking for
Something that can’t be found
They say I’m missing out
That my feet don’t touch the ground
 
But there are moments
When you can’t deny what’s true
Just an ordinary day
Like when I met you
 
It’s funny how life can take new meaning
You came and changed what I believe in
The world on the outside is trying to pull me in
But they can’t touch me
‘Cause I got you
I got you, oh yeah
 
I want to thank you
For all of the things you’ve done
And most for choosing me
To be the one
 
It’s funny how life can take new meaning
You came and changed what I believe in
The world on the outside is trying to pull me in
But they can’t touch me
‘Cause I got you
 
And it hits me when I reach for you
That I’m afraid you won’t be there
Maybe I am in too deep
But I don’t care
 
(Where would I belong)
I got you
Yeah
I want to prove them wrong
I’ve got you yeah
You can’t deny what’s true no
They can’t touch me, yeah yeah
I got you
I got you
I got you baby
You can’t deny what’s true
No, they can’t touch me
‘Cause I got you

Song lyrics
A hundred days have made me older
Since the last time that I saw your pretty face
A thousand lies have made me colder
And I don’t think I can look at this the same
But all the miles that separate
They disappear now when I’m dreaming of your face
 
I’m here without you baby
But you’re still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
And I dream about you all the time
I’m here without you baby
But you’re still with me in my dreams
And tonight
It’s only you and me
 
The miles just keep rolling
As the people leave their way to say hello
I’ve heard this life is overrated
But I hope that it gets better as we go
 
I’m here without you baby
But you’re still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
And I dream about you all the time
I’m here without you baby
You’re still with me in my dreams
And tonight girl
It’s only you and me
 
Everything I know
And anywhere I go
It gets hard but it won’t take away my love
And when the last one falls
When it’s all said and done
It gets hard but it won’t take away my love
 
I’m here without you baby
But you’re still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
And I dream about you all the time
I’m here without you baby
But you’re still with me in my dreams
And tonight girl
It’s only you and me
