stating the obvious

Things have changed around here, quite a bit. I’ve updated my gallery with the excellent if tedious-to-modify SPGM. In addition, DzSoft have been doing this software-for-blog-writeup promo to popularise a cool program which can resize jpegs and watermark them with semitransparent pngs in a batch-like fashion. Drag and drop. Nice.

So it’s only a couple of sleeps before we’re jetting off overseas… Excitement is building.

I’ll be putting more pictures online as I can. Merry [pre-]Christmas!

Just a taste of my taste in photography. It is yet a classic expression, but I am more concerned about the precise moment captured than its uniqueness.

More photos, with links to a gallery and other details, will be added before and during the Grand Overseas Family Holiday in December…

Apparently this is a big event in society. A milestone, a coming of age. Reason for dinner with family and/or a big shindig.

Oh, yeah, units. 662695445 seconds. Happy birthday to me.

real to me

like memories of a faded daydream,
things i think i saw. i cling
so tightly to what i hope is real
it’d be my end if it were wrong

it seems so easy on the face of it,
to find out all there is about You.
surely i could want it more
than i do, to see You one day

what exactly do i see
why do i say that i believe
who is it that i think i know
why don’t i always live like i believe

be real to me
empty

what is time, if not just time alone
to piece together all the wisps
which give so many all they need to see you
as real as they see me

and what if i could for an instant
look deep into the truth and find
a wealth of sorrow for this one
searching for proof

what exactly do i see
why do i say that i believe
who is it that i think i know
why don’t i always live like i believe

be real to me
empty

and what if You could make me
merely glimpse the overwhelming one
who’d die to show me reality
in all the hope that i’d dreamed

be real to me
empty

calm

Woke up this morning and did some errands before coming in to work. At the moment I’ve got a stack of stuff due for Uni, a particular relational issue which is rougher than 40 grit and the resulting correlative lack of sleep. So there’s no quantifiable reason why it should be the case, but I feel ridiculously calm and centred today.

And that’s it – there’s nothing else to be said. Just calm.

Speechless… [Contented sigh.]
