...You my dear are beyond glorious! It has been four hundred and sixteen days since my nephew came into the world.
The first time we met was curious, my beloved sister looked tired and you were a foreign being. I couldn't help but weep and I don't know why.
The next day I held your tiny frame in my arms and I knew that we were going to be best friends. You were so small then, looking like an old man.
Oh how you have changed me. You are the only person I would let slobber hand me and rub your meaty dinner in my face.
I love your rare instances of affection. When you creep up and kiss me or hug me. The rarity of these moments makes them all the more special.
I would share my caramel soy milkshake with you any day. I would even cater for you when I bake muffins.
You light up my life. We shall be friends forever. I love you Mishka.

My obligation are slowly coming to a peak. I feel like I'm swimming in a giant swimming pool. I can see the sky but I cant coordinate my limbs to take me there. I hate swimming, I have never been good at it and I have always feared that water would bring me to the ultimate fate.
In six months or less the plug will be removed from the giant bath and I will be able to breathe with ease again. I just wish that it would happen without pain and fear.

I am reading Vladimir Nabokov's 'Lolita' at the moment. It is a little disturbing but it is so beautifully written. I wanted to share with you a small segment. In context the segment is not exactly beautiful. However taken out of context I find it quite lovely.
'..."Let me follow a train of thought."
I thought. More than a minute passed.
"All right. Come on."
"Was I on that train?"
"You certainly were."'

I went to Melbourne for my cousin's wedding with my Mother, Father and Be on the weekend that has just passed. I enjoyed the festivities and the food, the Sunday morning spooning with Be and the book shopping. I enjoyed the flight which I have made quite frequently in the last few years.
I love taking off into the sky, that brief moment when the plane gains speed. I imagine it would feel somewhat like a pack of wild horses.
I also like those brief instances of gravity when the natural world reassures us of its ominous power over us.

I am required to study Mary Shelley's Frankenstein for my final exams. I quite liked the novel but after having to heavily analyse it I am slightly down heartened. I have to remember quotes so I thought that I might share them with you to help me remember.
"...I felt sensations of a peculiar and over-whelming nature; they were a mixture of pain and pleasure, such as I had never before experienced, either from hunger or cold, warmth or food; and I withdrew from the window, unable to bear these emotions."
The creature is so beautiful.

She said "Hello Mister, pleased to meet you"
I want to hold her, I want to kiss her
She smelled of daisies, she smelled of daisies.
Be my lover, my lady river
Can I take you, take you higher?

This afternoon after reading through copious amounts of information for legal studies, I put my helmet on and went into my backyard to attempt an ollie. For some unknown reason the backyard smelt way too sweet. I returned to my bedroom after a short time with a head ache and disappointment. I had failed what I had set out to do, which is to be expected the first few times, but I wanted to shine like some sort of rarity.
Needless to say I didn't. So I tubed it (YouTube). Tony Hawk and a nice man that I cannot remember the name of proceeded to show me neat tricks. These two nice fellows also talked about braking your tale etc. I love my board too much. How will I ever put that beautiful piece of glory in danger? I do not know.

Last night Zee, Be, Lella and I ventured forth to see John Mayer live in concert. It was absolutely marvellous. I wanted to smile a lot. I wanted to sit in that uncomfortable seat all night. I even thought about crying it was so beautiful. I loved how his knees wobbled to the tunes dorkily and how his navy suit looked like a jump-suit at first.

... but I never had yours.
Don't look back all you'll ever get is the dust from the steps before.
I don't have to see you everyday, but I just want to know you're there.
-She & Him, Don't Look Back.
She & Him have something special. They make me feel nostalgic and warm, like they are from a different time. They are like the modern day Carpenters, and boy that's good!
