Canopied by the Cloudless Blue Sky

"Darkly, deeply, beautifully blue," 
As some one somewhere sings about the sky.
(Lord Byron)


*****

For days..and weeks..and months that past, my city was canopied by the cloudless blue sky. Many times it was so clear and bright and beautiful. Once it was azure blue: so deep and dark and beautiful. Another time it was alice blue: so soft, so fragile, and pretty. Most of the times, the beauty is torturing: so beautiful, its painful. 

I'd like to spend the whole day traveling upon a winged-horse, soar up high and went all around the universe. But, alas! My pace of time has flown as fast as the wind blows. My eyes are dark and swollen like the raccoon's eyes. No matter how happy my heart is, my body has scream for a time off. 

"Not so long now, dear",I said.

Soon, I'll jump right into the blue and brings you all some souvenirs in my magic bean bags.

Pinky promise!

It Can Fly!

♪ ♫ ♪ When I See an Elephant Fly - Dumbo ♪ ♫ ♪


*****

Meet Krilo, my new friend. When I first met him, I didn't even sure whether it was a he or a she. In fact, I haven't even so sure what was that exactly. 


*****



*****

Now, seriously.. take a closer look! 

Is it a chimney.. or an elephant trunk, or is it really a worm just like what his father said it was?


*****


*****

I can't believe it was a worm. No way. It's just too cute. and adorable..and very chatty~ almost gossipy.. and  kissable! Worm is not kissable. Or at least, a worm can't be that kissable, can it? 

*****



 *****

The second thing that I just can't believe: it's nameless! Name-less! Really?? Ah! Pity.. 
Everything should be named for its where the soul lays!

 That's when his father asked me to name him. 
So I give him a Krilo~ a wing. I hope he likes it. 

 *****


*****

At the end, I still believe that Krilo is an elephant living underground and let its trunk out to get fresh air all the time. To be in the underground can be quite breathless, I think. As he just got a new wing, I know that once in awhile, the elephant will walk out of his peace down there and soar up freely into the night's magic sphere, dancing with the stars, and stay until the first glimmering morning sun kisses his cheek.

I think he likes his new wing.. his new name.. for last night, he just took me to a little flight to the silvery moon.. he packed two trunks of sweets, fruits, chocolates, poetry books, and finest wine to go with us.. ah.. happiness!

Dream and Passion are Stars in You

There are a million little strings attached to every choice you make; 
you can destroy your life every time you choose. 
But maybe you won't know for twenty years. 
And you may never ever trace it to its source. 
And you only get one chance to play it out.
(Synecdoche, New York)



*****

I'm glad I did jump out of the Neverland few months ago and start pursuing my dream. Dream and passion are powerful things. Everytime you talk about it, you re-polish it to make it new and shiny once again. When you start writing about it, there goes the blueprint. But when you start pursuing your dream; life wakes up, and passion is like a burning star shinning through your eyes very now and then.

Talk about dream and passion, I just stumbled upon this dreamy little shop called "Fairy Shop" of Tita and Lili in Bulgaria. These two sisters are not afraid to listen to their heart and follow their passion. As a result, there goes one of the quirkiest shop ever in an old garage; selling all the delicate little things, accessories, and dolls. My heart jumps a bit when I found it online and I simply can't help myself not to share it with you all.

I think I just died and gone to a little shop in heaven..

If more people decide to listen to their heart, follow their passion, and achieve their dream; I think it would be a lot merrier world! ;)
