I’m Back With ‘The Walking Dead”

I admit it. I’m a fan of the series. We’ll after the last few week’s announcement of its return on AMC and season 3 finale episode. I was like living in a stone when I learned that it’s the season 5 already. Where was I? I was nailed at Season 3’s episode 11 and still got 5 more episodes to go.

We’ll that was yesterday.

Today, I happen to pass a dvd store in the downtown area to buy what my wife wanted to watch (the film Annabelle). I was looking for Filipino indie films when I stumbled upon “The Walking Dead’s Season 3 and 4” dvd on display. I never bothered to touch it, then I asked the vendor if they have an indie movie on stock. When he told me they didn’t have one, and no other dvd’s caught my attention, I was forced to buy it. For avid fans, pardon me, but that was the right term.

After watching the remaining episodes of season 3, I have to take back what I said. The season was awesome. After months on hiatus because I have to focus on GOT and busy work schedules, I never knew what I had missed when I let the remaining episodes at rest.

Not anymore this’ll going to happen again. With the season 5 on the run and lagging behind season 4 16 episodes, I have to double time. Never mind the sleepless nights. I have to finish this.

the little prince

“But if you tame me, it will be as if the sun came to shine in my life. I shall know the sound of a step that will be different from all the others. Other steps send me hurrying back underneath the ground. Yours will call me, like music, out of my burrow. And then look: you see the grain-fields down yonder? I do not eat bread. Wheat is of no use to me. The wheat fields have nothing to say to me. And that is sad. But you have hair that is the colour of gold. Think how wonderful it will be when you have tamed me. The grain which is also golden, will bring me back the thought of you. And I shall love o listen to the wind in the wheat…”

Bukang-Liwayway

Naiisip kita sa tuwing ganitong oras.Gising at parang naging tanawin na sa isang magandang pinta. Ano nga ba ang pandama ng gumigising mag-isa at nararamdaman ang nuot ng lamig? Ano nga ba ang kahulugan ng lungkot? Ang kalungkutan ba’y ang pag-iisa o katotohanan din ang kabaligtaran? Sa tingin ko malayo pa sa iyong tingin ang iyong isasagot.

Nadadaanan kita lagi. Hindi mo lang nahahalata. Ako iyong mahilig maglakad sa ganitong nag-aagaw ang liwanag at dilim. Nasa akto lagi ng pagtakbo kahit naglalakad lamang. Ako iyong mahilig mag-abang at magbilang ng nangagmatay na mga ilaw sa daan. Kung hindi mo pa ako nakikilala or nakikita man lang, eto na ako’t nagpapakilala sa iyo. Malugod kitang kinikilala. Saksi ko ang mga letra sa aking kompyuter.

Ikaw paano ka nga ba magpapakilala sa akin? Ikaw na wari’y nag-aabang sa maaring iluwal ng kalawakan tuwing umaga. Ikaw na wari’y isang obra ng isang batikang pintor kung nakadungaw sa iyong bintana. Paano nga ba ikaw magpapakilala kung hindi mo maiba ang lahat ng bagay, na ako’y tao, iyan ay puno, ayun ang nawawalang buwan. Ngunit hindi mo na din kailan pang magpakilala. Maraming nakakakilala sa iyo. Maraming may alam ng buhay mo kahit panlabas lamang na anyo.

Hindi nga ba hinugot mo pa ang iyong kalungkutan mula sa nobela at akda ni Kureishi. Hinihintay mo pa rin bang may dumaan sa ganitong oras kaya’t nakadungaw ka? Paano kung hindi na siya/sila dumating? Mapapatawad mo pa rin ba ang kalawakan kung bakit hindi siya naging tapat sa iyo? At bakit nga ba sa tuwing bukang-liwayway napapangiti ka ng lihim (sa aking palagay)?

Kilala kita. Ako, nagpakilala na ngunit hindi mo pa rin nakikilala. May mensahe nga ba ang bukang liwayway? Marahil, marahil. Pero alam kong maganda ito, mas maganda pa sa maganda mong mukha. Tiyak may igaganda pa ito kapag matututunan mo nang kalimutan ang delubyo ng nakaraan takipsilim.
