this blog has evolved

Tuesday, September 18, 2007
It used to be simply a place to wait for the dark depths to sail safely past, hoping that, somehow, it might muffle the deafening silence of my solitude. Now it’s not merely about exhuming and burying painful memories but a sacred indulgence and a means of brokering, yet again, a truce with life.

It's quotidian for you to put words together that stirs the emotion. I now hie to nearest dark place and cower.

Angeli said...

were you? (i mean stirred)

Daddo said...

What do I win? ;)

The book I’ve been reading lately says, “Wickedness is always wickedness but folly is not always a folly.” How true, my folly is no longer a folly.

Hi A =) I'm back. I'm just trying to catch up on what you've been up to. Hmm...interesting about this Iskolar ng Bayan...Keep me updated.

Angeli said...

hi kayni.. i know you've been busy for a while.. he's really interesting, huh? :)

Angeli said...

do you win? hmmmmmmmmm.. is there a war going on that i'm not aware of?

dear daddo,

hi there. don't you think it will be nicer if you tell me more about yourself? i'd like to know that the person i'm corresponding with is real and not merely some virtual entity. :)

And I can't believe you're reading Jane Austen's Emma.. :) Oh, wow..

"I do not know whether it ought to be so, but certainly silly things do cease to be silly if they are done by sensible people in an impudent way."

Daddo said...

Dear Angeli,
If you read comments I posted so far, they can summed up by Bertrand Russell’s words.

“Three passions have governed my life:
The longings for love, the search for knowledge,
And unbearable pity for the suffering of [humankind].”


Isn’t that enough?
Daddo

I digress. I intentionally omitted the title/author of my current read for fear of being called a geek again but the geekest person I know memorized the book. ;) By the way to answer your question if I was stirred – very much so – and I of thought saying “Wow!” but it would not do justice the most profound two sentences I’ve ever read.

Angeli said...

oh.. i am actually speechless. let me first absorb everything you said.

by the way, admit it. you are a closet geek. :) and i like it.. :)

Angeli said...

words often fail us when we wish to express our deepest feelings.

"human language is like a cracked kettledrum on which we beat our tunes for bears to dance to, when what we long to do is to make music that will move the stars to pity." - gustave flaubert

Daddo said...

Is there such as thing marginal geek asymptotic to the x axis?

Angeli said...

there is. You. :) but you have to define what x is.

do you know that you make me happy?

araramidem nga napintas ti aldaw ko. :)

Daddo said...

I am glad you are happy.

Pinaragsak mo dagiti aldaw ko manipud idi nabirukak daytoy website mo.

Daddo found Angeli. Love moves in mysterious ways.

Angeli said...

was that you, daddo?

Angeli said...

i even asked my mom (through the phone) for this translation:

Dardarepdepen ko 'ti sumangpet nga comment galing kingka.

:)

Daddo said...

That was not me up there.

But we have to work on you Ilocano. We have to make it Palanca award material.

Dardarepdepen ko 'ti sumangpet nga comment galing kingka.

Galing is Tagalog/Pilipino. It should be naggapu.

It is 2:00am here and I correcting your Ilocano.

Did you know from the 38 things about, I read inquirer.net everyday too. How weird is that?

Angeli said...

aren't you supposed to be sleeping?

my ilocano sucks, i know. :) i only asked her what "i'm looking forward to" is in ilocano but forgot to ask about "comments from you".

it's not weird at all. :)
