It's Getting Cooler!

Hello, :)

It's been raining constantly every day for the past week. I love it, the weather is getting cooler and cooler. This is as chilly as it gets where I am currently living.

Cooler weather like this always come with certain feelings and memories for me every year, though.
Well, ... here are some of them.

    • Reading Harry Potter book intensely day in day out for the Nth time
    • Reading any novels!
    • Reading, just reading, from morning 'til night
    • The smell of the paper, old books, new books, all of them
    • Playing ALL DAY LONG and only stopping for shower and toilet breaks (eating while playing)
    • Sleeping in until past noon
    • Shivering while showering (my bathroom has an over-sized ventilation directly to the backyard) :s 
    • Break-ups
    • Hot chocolates with marshmallows and plain hot tea
    • Baking all kinds of cookies and eating a dozen of freshly baked blueberry muffins! -- Yep, that happened, all in one go!
      Sort ... of ... proud ... ... :S

    How's the current weather in your area and what feelings / memory does it bring for you during this time of the year? :)

      Much love from under the wrap of the blanket,

      The Big Girl in The Big City

      It was pouring rain that morning in Gigantica. An industrial city. The fog was thick and it was muddy everywhere.
      The busy city run around its usual hectic schedule. Nothing would have stopped it. Not even the thunderstorm. 

      People were rushing past each other without looking at each other in the face. There was no time to do so.

      The mass transportation system was as busy transporting people from one point to the other. 

      There was always too little time.

      Out of nowhere the people hear a crying sound. Loud enough for the whole city to hear. But still, no one was stopping. There were things to attend to.

      Then suddenly the mud somehow got thicker, and the puddles got deeper and wider.

      Deep enough that the sewers could not contain it any longer. The water has risen to ankle deep.

      The people kept walking briskly. Like nothing happened.

      The shadows from the city skyline then got darker and darker. Something unusual was happening.

      Among the buildings there showed up a girl. A very big girl. 

      She seemed to made out of steel, as tall as the tallest building. 
      She stepped into the city, and vehicles passed by avoiding her feet.

      Now it is clear where the crying was from. The big girl was adding more water to that of the rain.

      She stared and stared to the people. Crying louder with each minute.

      But no one even seemed to notice her there. They had things to attend to. There was always not enough time.

      Then suddenly as sudden as she came, the crying stopped. 

      She stood still in her place, ... and out of that big girl came out ... a little girl. 

      A little girl with a very big coat.

      She dropped the overweight coat, and walked along with the other people.
      This way, someday, she too, will be a real big girl.
