Happy Gay Friday & Some Light
I’m scratching my head, thinking hard, looking heavenward, searching for words, looking for explanations – well, I think you get the point – in an attempt to describe how I feel. I have this indeterminate feeling of sadness. But I have nothing to be sad about, how sad is that, huh? All I want to do is play loud music, browse through my folders of yummy cookies and read. Maybe it’s the weather, which is rather stormy, wet and dark. Maybe it’s my tired body and slightly full head, remainders of having to deal with some fatiguing issues at work. Maybe it’s because I’m a bit behind with writing reviews and haven’t blogged much this week. Or maybe it’s just that time of the month. I dunno…
This is the (beautiful but sad) song I'm playing atm at maximum volume:
I do know that it’s time to look at the words that I painted on my bedroom wall: ‘Turn your face towards the sun and shadows will fall behind you’.
While the real sun is lacking today I’m using blogging as a substitute for some light. And I already feel it’s working. :)
*And it also helps that the next song in my playlist is Happiness by The Fray*
I haven’t even blogged about last Friday's IRL meeting with Leontine and Lis! The three of us met in Utrecht, Lis’s hometown, where we went to a cozy place for a high tea. And it was awesome, we started chatting and we never stopped until we had to catch our train home again. Leontine wrote about it on her blog, so if you’re curious what we talked about go read her wonderful blog post here.
More about this idea later.
Speaking of ideas. I’m thinking about changing my blog’s name into something more general. A short brainstorm made me come up with ‘Loves and Joys’ combined with my name or even with ‘Reviews’ although that may be a bit too pretentious for my blog *g*. I’m not sure yet about the change, I have to think through what the consequences will be… Feel free to tell me what you think of this idea. :)
Breathe, her second novel (some of you might remember how much I loved her debut, More, if not you can read my High 5, Low 5 review here).
And the good news is: Sloan is going to give away an ecopy of Breathe to one of you! The contest will run from November 11 – 16!
*I'm finishing this post while listening to Hard Enough by Brandon Flowers*
Hope you all have a Happy Friday!
