stories from Canada: starry nights

Friday, September 29
It's already past midnight. We are driving from the YVR airport to Squamish, I sit in the front seat, next to Wendy, my mum's cousin. Her mother, my dutch great aunt sits in the back. I haven't slept for almost 25 hours and my sleep suddenly catches up to me. My vision is getting hazy, my head getting heavier and after staring in front of me for a while, only being able to see where the headlights can reach, I close my eyes and turn my chair back. At this moment, I reckon almost everyone would fall asleep. But I didn't. Instead, I opened my eyes, expecting the car ceiling, but all I got was a pitch black sky with stars so bright like I had never seen before. The car had a skylight and I hadn't noticed, probably because I was lacking 25 hours of sleep. With the new moon, the sky was clear and other than the soothing sound of a driving car it was quiet. Looking up to the best welcome I could have had, I couldn't help but smile as I slowly closed my eyes, feeling my consciousness fading away. And that was just the very beginning..

reminiscing on rainy days

Bangkok, 13-9-2017

My back pressed against the pillow, my hair for the first time in months in a low knot, I'm writing this little diary entry in my journal. I'm sorry if the first post I posted on here had to be a somber one, but so be it. Actually, I'm not sorry. It's just the way it is right now. My whole room is getting darker by the minute, the clouds slowly covering the last little bit of sunlight lighting up Bangkok and it's only 3 o'clock in the afternoon. This room has been my safe place the past two days, this bed my safe haven. A million drops of rain fill up the blue empty lonely pool outside my room. I believe tonight might finally be the day I get to swim in it. Oh, how I long for swimming in that pool. Not that I could, even this enormous amount of rain isn't enough to fill up a stupid blue pool.
