|Daniel Briand: o cenário para o último post e café da manhã do ano : )|
two (Lily)December 21st
I love Christmas.I love everything about it: the lights, the cheer, the big family gatherings, the cookies, the presents piled high around the tree, the goodwill to all. I know it’s technically goodwill to all men, but in my mind, I drop the men because that feels segregationist/elitist/sexist/generally bad ist. Goodwill shouldn’t be just for men. It should also apply to women and children, and all animals, even the yucky ones like subway rats. I’d even extend the goodwill not just to living creatures but to the dearly departed, and if we include them, we might as well include the undead, those supposedly mythic beings like vampires, and if they’re in, then so are elves, fairies, and gnomes. Heck, since we’re already being so generous in our big group hug, why not also embrace those supposedly inanimate objects like dolls and stuffed animals (special shout-out to my Ariel mermaid, who presides over the shabby chic flower power pillow on my bed—love you, girl!). I’m sure Santa would agree. Goodwill to all. (D&L, pp. 17/18).
There are no such things as a soulmate... and who would want there to be? I don't want half of a shared soul. I want my own damn soul. (...) Not soulmates. But close. Because that as far as you should ever get with another person: very, very close. (N&E, p. 174).
|Muito personagem fofo junto.|
"It's just a simulation, Tris", Four says quietly.He's wrong. The last simulation bled into my life, waking and sleeping. Nightmares, not just featuring the crows but the feelings I had in the simulation - terror and halplessness, which I suspect is what I am really afraid of.(...)Stilll I nod and close my eyes. (p. 251).
Feliz ano novo!!!
Muitos livros, filmes, amigos, viagens...

PSS: Importante para a história de Dash e Lily é The Strand, livraria gigantesca na Broadway, NY. Na entrada, há o anúncio de 18 miles of books... no livro, uma discussão engraçada a respeito dessa soma. O site da livraria já é uma viagem bacana: http://www.strandbooks.com.
