Harvest Moon

My love.

I’d like to add one thing to our list.

Let’s slow dance to this Neil Young song.
“Harvest Moon”

Come a little bit closer

Hear what I have to say

Just like children sleeping

We could dream this night away

But there’s a full moon rising

Let’s go dancing in the light

We know where the music’s playing

Let’s go out and feel the night 

Because I’m still in love with you

On this harvest moon

When we were strangers

I watched you from afar

When we were lovers

I loved you with all my heart

But now it’s getting late

And the moon is climbing high

I want to celebrate

See it shining in your eye

Because I’m still in love with you

On this harvest moon

I’d choose you

(The moment that Santiago meets Fatima in “The Alchemist”)
Because, when you know that language, it’s easy to understand that someone in the world awaits you, whether it’s in the middle of the desert or in some great city.

And when two such people encounter each other, and their eyes meet, the past and the future become unimportant.

There is only that moment, and the incredible certainty that everything under the sun has been written by one hand only. It is the hand that evokes love, and creates a twin soul for everyone person in the world.

Without such love, one’s dreams would have no meaning. 

“Maktub”, thought the boy.

~ The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho

And in your words, two parts of a loving whole, two hearts and a single soul.

My Secret Super Power – Day 85 – October 8, 2014

If I had a super power, it would be a cloud of pink, purple and blue that wraps around people who need love and protection.
The cloud would keep them safe.
The cloud would erase their pain.

This week, I wish I had this super power.
There are a few people that I’d like to wrap in my pink, purple and blue cloud.
And just make them better.


You feeling better?

Sometimes, three little words can make your day.

No. Not “I love you”.
But words asking after you.
Words wanting to know if you’re better.
Words demonstrating tenderness, care and of course, love.

Today, those three little words came from you.
“You feeling better?”

Instantly better.
Better than ever.
My three little words back to you.
Better than ever.


Love as a process.

When someone asks you,
“What is it that you like about me?”
It’s both the easiest and the hardest question to answer.

All I could come up with was, “I like your smell.”

Then you told me,
“This is what I like about you – the process of getting to know you.”
“All the little things put together.”

Love is a process.


More than love.

People have many names for that important person in their life.

Husband. Wife.
Boyfriend. Girlfriend.
Significant Other.
The list goes on.

I like to call you my 知己 – a word that means “confidante” in Chinese.
When you look at the Chinese characters, 知 means to know, and 己 means self.

Someone who knows me.

You are someone who knows me the way I love to be known.
And I know you the way you know me.

This is my Valentine’s gift to you.
More than love, we have history.
We have each other.


I sleep sweeter

It’s not important whether I understand or not.
What’s important is that you told me.

My world is lovelier with you in it.
I sleep sweeter knowing you are in my world.

Good night my sweet.


You’ll still be here tomorrow

I’m in Taiwan.
I’m also very lucky to be one of my niece’s favourite persons in the world.

This morning she said to me,
“You will still be here tomorrow, that’s so great.”

Love is letting them know that their presence is felt, wanted and appreciated.
When was the last time you told someone that it’s so great that they will still be there tomorrow?

It’s a very sweet thing to say.
