Kings Of Convenience...

I had 3 songs of this Norwegian band, and I like 'em...but somehow only until more than a week ago I finally thought, "hmmm...how come I never checked their other songs?"

and so I did...got both of their albums, and my oh my, I can't stop listening to them...I mean, check this song below, how beautiful is this.....

Your grand farewell, my love...

It's been years and years we've been together...
Through heat and cold and mud and sand and rain...
Over 20 countries we've traveled together...

It's never about the look,
Coz lots of people said we don't fit :)
It's about the comfortness...
and it's always have been..

Through all that reparations :p
Through blood and shit..literally...

I think you need to have a deserving farewell,
So though it seems like a lot,
These are only some of the moments we have had together...
Ciao bella! :))



with smile,
ali

PS: I know some people are very glad with this :))

Another writing from the present history...

It's what eyes can't see
It's what freedom trying to set free

As it turns out, invisible means it exists
As it turns out, existence can still be invisible

The feeling feels how it felt

Sucking the air you're about to breathe
Brutality of softness

A message to the sun not to forget
To break in even to the tiniest hole of cold and unlightned

It's what freedom planned with me
It's what freedom needs from me

Setting free the naked eyes
The visibility on the invisible

The feeling felt how it feels

Envisioned abstract beauty
Unspeakable truth of an existence

It's what freedom trying to set free
The reason of our identity

The white cloud comes, proved the weatherman wrong
The brightest darkness
The revelation of abstract beauty

There's a box of apple juice next to my bed...from the weight, I think it's almost empty...

What will this post talk about?
That's what I have in mind before I started writing these words...

I have this urge in me...I need to write, but it took me more than 10 minutes before that first "W" was typed. Staring at the screen of my computer, half sitting half laying on the bed, fingers were ready less than 1cm away above the keyboard....

I have this urge to write, but what will this post talk about?
I'm not sure if I'm feeling like this because I have nothing to write or I just have so many thoughts that I can write and they all just got mixed up and confuse me...
But as I finished typing that 3 dots by the end of the previous sentence, I'm now sure that it's because the 2nd reason...

I'm still not sure what will this post talk about. Lets just see what will my mind ask my fingers to write.
So this might be a selfish post. But that doesn't mean it's not for you to read, it's for everyone who feels like reading.

Anyways, how can there be an information in your brain that says Ali was writing what he's been writing for 18 lines so far -not including the spaces between the lines- if it's not because what your eyes (with or without glasses) been detecting for 20 lines now, which means your eyes brought the information about the sight you saw to your brain, making you understand the words I'm writing, which was caused by your ability to read....

Funny, my shuffled windows media player is now playing a song called Misread by Kings of Convenience...

But hey, you're reading...that makes me feel less selfish about this post.

And hey, so if there's a point at all in this post, that would be be grateful, because you can read all of this. I guess a lot of times we take things for granted...too many times actually. Even something as simple as our ability to read.

You know what...
On second thought, I don't think it's not a simple thing. I think it seems simple because we've been around people who can read most of our lives. I'm thinking if I lived within a community or a society whom most -or even all- of the people couldn't read at all (and they do exist!), the ability to read would've been something so special...

And I guess there are so many things that are like this, that we took for granted, very often...
Not just reading...that's just one example from other gazillion things...

At this point, I feel even less selfish about this post than when I wrote the line above that started with "But hey"

Be grateful...I'm grateful too...

I realized that while I'm writing this I'm also reminding my self to be grateful, for what I have...for what I feel...for what I think...for feeling grateful...
