Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean it is not real?

... Of course this magical world of wizards and goblins, thestrals and hippogriffs, broomsticks and potions, bludgers and snitches, owls and animagi, alohomora's and expecto patronum's and so on and so on, exists in our heads.
But I can't see why on earth that doesn't mean it's real.

Writer's Block: Whatever gets you through the night

Oh my... this is turning out to be harder than I thought :)

Hmm.. let's see. First of all you have the epic "Give peace a chance" and damn if it doesn't make you get up your ass and blast this-isms and that-isms. Amazingly inspirational. And then you have "Working class hero", which is probably the theme of my intellectual teenage rebellion, a period where you would often find me writing all over my books conspiracy theories, revolutionary quotes and dark lyrics. Angstyyy.

"Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV,
And you think you're so clever and classless and free,
But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see,
A working class hero is something to be,
A working class hero is something to be."

And then of course you have "God", which was probably like the Second Coming to me. It was a revelation that I still to this day treasure and play in the back of my mind in various occasions as a reminder of John's fascinating non-conformity that I always envied and aspired to achieve. "I was the walrus but now I'm John. And so dear friends, you just have to carry on. The dream is over".

"Just like starting over" always gets in my cheeriest of moods! I love starting my day listening to it. And of course who can forget "Happy Xmas (War is Over)". Epic! As long as it's not overplayed and by the people that led to its creation in the first place, thus making it a commercialized lullaby with John's signature for kids to fall asleep on Christmas Eve.

"Mind Games" always got me because it signifies an important part in John and Yoko's relationship which always fascinated me. Of course someone will say, most of his songs of that time are dedicated to her, are about her, are infused with her avant-garde essence. But this is what was going through John's mind during his "lost weekend" and it says everything it needs to say about their love and devotion to one another even when they were apart. Love isn't easy, love is a minefield. But it is "the answer, and you know that for sure"!

But perhaps my favorite is "Oh my love". I imagine myself playing it on the piano and singing it to my potential Yoko and it just fills me with undescribable feelings of bliss and completeness. Simple yet powerful in the complexity of feelings it portrays, "Oh my love" makes me embrace the hope of seeing everything clearly in my heart and in our world. Of opening myself up, of feeling, of living.

Meme is the only thing I have time to do right now.

→ List seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself.
→ Tag seven people to do the same.
→ Do not tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag "whoever wants to do it."

1. I like to jump over puddles of rain.
2. I still wear a retainer at night. When I remember to.
3. I love to bake, especially with friends=)
4. I hate talking on the phone.
5. Next time I'm going to the hair salon, I'm going dark.
6. I LOVE predicting the Academy Awards, even if that means waking up at 4 am to watch them live:) I wish I could be a member of the commitee one day and have a say on the outcome!
7. I think I might have been Sylvia Plath in my previous life.

PS. I don't care about the tagging rule thingy, just go ahead and copy if you 're up for a meme:)
And HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!

Writer's Block: Happy go lucky

Do you believe some people are more fortunate than others or do you think people create their own luck? In your opinion, are some people cursed?

The control freak that I am, I would like to think we create our own luck. I believe we can increase our chances by making certain moves but what happens then I think is just not in our hands. It's all coincidental and all about the right timing. Being at a certain place a certain time.

I am a pretty horrible person!

If you have 00-10 ... write [I'm a goody-goody]
If you have 11-20 ... write [I'm still a goody-goody]
If you have 21-30 ... write [I'm average]
If you have 31-40 ... write [I'm a bad kid]
If you have 41-50 ... write [I'm a very bad influence]
If you have 51-60 ... write [I'm a horrible person]
If you have 61-70 ... write [I should be in jail]
If you have 71-80 ... write [I should be dead]
If you have 81-90 ... write [I got a ticket to Hell]

Θέλω να περπατάω, να περπατάω..
Να ανοίξω το βήμα μου ταχύ
και τα κύματα να σπάω..
Με μια ανάσα να μυρίσω το άυριο,
με ένα δάκρυ να γευτώ την αυγή..

Θέλω να περπατάω, να περπατάω..
Κι εκείνους που νεκροί κείτονται στο οδόστρωμα
αλύπητα σαν ερείπια να πατάω..
Εκεί κι ο δισταγμός, εκεί κι η αγωνία.
Το δίκιο και το έλεος αιώνιοι ικέτες.

Θέλω να περπατάω, να περπατάω..
Στη γη κάπου άσυλο να βρω,
τον ήλιο να αγαπάω..
Και μολονότι σοκάκια πένθιμα ακόμη αναζητάω,
είμαι πιστή στον οδηγό μου.
Περπατάω, περπατάω ...
