Zuwern Lion Dancing

My baby boy is all grown up now~ he loves singing, dancing, and lately he's fascinated with the superheroes; Spiderman, Ultraman 3, also insects and snakes and lizards......... He is so very adorable, and I cannot resist kissing him all the time.

Milan Kundera's Immortality

"She walked around the pool toward the exit. She passed the lifeguard, and after she had gone some three or four steps beyond him, she turned her head, smiled, and waved to him. At that instant I felt a pang in my heart! That smile and that gesture belonged to a twenty-year-old girl! Her arm rose with bewitching ease. It was as if she were playfully tossing a brightly colored ball to her lover. That smile and that gesture had charm and elegance, while the face and the body no longer had any charm. It was the charm of a gesture drowning in the charmlessness of the body. But the woman, though she must of course have realized that she was no longer beautiful, forgot that for the moment. There is a certain part of all of us that lives outside of time. Perhaps we become aware of our age only at exceptional moments and most of the time we are ageless. In any case, the instant she turned, smiled, and waved to the young lifeguard (who couldn’t control himself and burst out laughing), she was unaware of her age. The essence of her charm, independent of time, revealed itself for a second in that gesture and dazzled me. I was strangely moved. And then the word Agnes entered my mind. Agnes. I had never known a woman by that name."

Adrian Mole's Attempt at Being a Poet

"Do you weep, Mrs Thatcher, do you weep?
Do you wake, Mrs Thatcher, in your sleep?
Do you weep like a sad willow
On your Marks and Spencer's pillow?
Are you tears molten steel?
Do you weep? "

Sue Townsend's Adrian Mole has remained one of my favourite fictional characters. He is such a "nerd" but his love for Pandora was extremely touching..... :)

I am awaiting Sue Townsend's next book with great anticipation.....

The Butterfly Lovers
