Goodbye and hello

Dear friend,

It has been almost a year since I wrote anything on this blog, and my how life has changed since then! Let's see. I have been thrice promoted at work, and will soon go through a slight career shift. I got engaged in March... and am now married. Cholo and I are waiting for our new home to be ready and are slowly buying pieces of furniture for the meantime. And oh, I have been studying French!

What else? I'm sure there are a thousand other new things that has happened, which I can't quite remember now. I know there has been plenty of changes, because I feel like a new person, you see.

I have been keeping this blog since 2009, and for almost six years it has been my little place in the world wide web. For six years I was pretty sure that no one really bothers to visit but I somehow found it absolutely okay because what's important, I realized, is that I have my own little place somewhere out there where I can be myself and write away all I want and no one will care.

I always thought that this particular blog is a keeper-- that this will be my little place for as long as I live. But then when I dropped by around two weeks ago I found that the person who wrote all those things here is not me anymore.

And so I'll be blogging here from now on:

As for this blog, this will still be a keeper-- my little place in the world wide web, my treasure chest of memories from 2009 to 2014. For when I need to remember.

Yours,
Clarise

The Longest Week

"The Longest Week," my belated introduction to the quirky oeuvre of Peter Glanz, is at times pseudo-intellectual but always... pretty. And the music. I will never listen to Bach the same way again.

Pink roses

Every so often Cholo surprises me with flowers-- beautiful pale pink ones, the kind I like.
