life is not a fairy tale.

Posted on Sunday, June 6th, 2010 at 9:10 am

If at the end, we can’t share the same place, dream the same dream and live the same life. I’m sorry, but please let me know how I can make you happy, that’s the least I can do for you.

I don’t want to blame the distance between us, but life indeed is not a fairy tale and happily ever after might be only the sweet words so children can have a good dream. I don’t know if I did too much or too less, for you. I’m just a stupid guy, who just wants you to be happy, but don’t know how to do so.

You know I make a house. People ask me why I make a small house. I sometime told them, so I can be close to the one I love, all the time. My house will not have expensive furniture or fancy decoration, but it will have lots of trees. So, when we live there together, we can have our own world.

I’ll wait for you at our house. I’ll plant our trees and take care of them, till the day you come. I’ll wait for that day, even though, it may never come.

Sorry, but I fell so weak, life is indeed not a fairy tale……………….

ความรักของเสกสรรค์

Posted on Tuesday, August 25th, 2009 at 1:35 am

ความรักทางจิตวิญญาณหมายถึงความรักที่เลิกยึดถือ ตนเองเป็นศูนย์กลาง แต่ถือคนที่เรารักเป็นตัวตั้งโดยเราไม่มีข้อเรียกร้อง ไม่มีความต้องการจะใช้อีกฝ่ายหนึ่งเป็นวัตถุรองรับความรัก เราเป็นหนึ่งเดียวกับเขาในแง่นี้ เราไม่แยกตัวเป็นความปรารถนาอีกชุดหนึ่งจากภายนอก หากอนุญาตให้ความรักแผ่รังสีมาจากความสงบในใจเรา เป็นความรักที่มาจากความปรารถนาดี เมตตากรุณา ปราศจากเงื่อนไข ความรักในขั้นจิตวิญญาณนี้เป็นสิ่งที่ต้องเพียรพยายามปฏิบัติ จึงจะเข้าใจและเกิดผล มันเป็นส่วนหนึ่งของการเดินทางธรรม ซึ่งแม้ทำไม่ได้ถึงที่สุด มีสติไว้บ้างก็ยังดีกว่าไม่ยอมหันหน้ามาทิศนี้เลย

Read me slowly, read me through

Posted on Thursday, December 13th, 2007 at 3:58 am

One way to force yourself to read books in a regular manner is to set a rule, for example, three pages every night. DailyLit (http://www.dailylit.com/) provides another convenient to read a book regularly by using email. You can choose a book you want to read, the frequency of email, and your destination email address. Then, DailyLit will send you the content of the book in email, chapter by chapter, to your email address with the preferred frequency. More over, you can stop the DailyLit sending, for example, when you’re going to take a vacation and cannot access your email account. You can find many good free books from DailyLit or some cheap pay-per-read book

My recent reading list is “Crime and Punishment”, you can see, the email frequency must be very slow. Well, Dostoyevsky is something hard to digest.

Good bye Borders at Jam Factory

Posted on Tuesday, April 3rd, 2007 at 1:37 am

Borders is going to close all book stores in UK, including those in Australia and New Zealand. Well, it certainly includes the Borders at Jam Factory in Melbourne, which is one of my favorite book store when I spent my life there. The place was my “no-place-to-go” place and where I bought most of my books, including the whole set of TAOCP. I always hope that I will revisit there when I’ve a chance to go to Melbourne again, but it seems to be a forever hope now….

Farewell my beloved book store, I will miss you every time I read.

Lamp-post in a snowy night.

She began to walk forward, crunch-crunch over the snow and through the wood towards the other light. In about ten minutes she reached it and found it was a lamp-post.

From C.S. Lewis’ The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

A tragic side of the Pooh

Posted on Monday, April 17th, 2006 at 4:00 am


You may wonder why I give the title like this, but you know, Winnie-the-pooh has a sad ending, kind of. If you read both of the Pooh books, Winnie-the-Pooh and The House At Pooh Corner, you’d know the ending of the second book, I copy part of it here,

Then, suddenly again, Christopher Robin, who was still looking at the world, with his chin in his hands, called out, “Pooh!”
“Yes?” said Pooh.
“When I’m — when — Pooh!”
“Yes, Christopher Robin?”
“I’m not going to do Nothing any more.”
“Never again?”
“Well, not much. They won’t let you.”
Pooh waited for him to go on, but he was silent again.
“Yes, Christopher Robin?” said Pooh helpfully.
“Pooh, when I’m — you know — when I’m not doing Nothing, will you be here sometimes?
“Just me?”
“Yes, Pooh.”
“Will you be here too?”
“Yes, Pooh, I will be, really. I promise I will be, Pooh.”
“That’s good,” said Pooh.
“Pooh, promise you won’t forget about me, ever. Not even when I’m a hundred.”
Pooh thought for a little.
“How old shall I be then?”
“Ninety-nine.”
Pooh nodded.
“I promise,” he said.
Still with his eyes on the world Christopher Robin put out a hand and felt for Pooh’s paw. “Pooh,” said Christopher Robin earnesstly, “if I — if I’m not quite —” he stopped and tried again — “Pooh, whatever happens, you will understand, won’t you?”

You may wonder why this is sad. When Christopher Robin said “doing Nothing” (capital N), it has a special meaning, it means the time when Christopher Robin just hang around with Pooh and friends in the Hundred Acre Wood. So, from the ending, Christopher Robin told Pooh that he cannot “doing Nothing” anymore, maybe because he is growing up or he has to go to school, it means that he cannot come and spend time with Pooh and friends as frequent as before. For me, it’s a kind of good bye message, like the story of Puff the Magic Dragon or Jessie, the Yodeling Cowgirl in Toy Story II. When children grow up, their toys, their memory are left behind. That’s sad, isn’t it?

Anyway, it can be interpreted as a promise between friend and friend, that’s whatever happen, they will still be friend and will understand each other, that’s what friend are for, right?
