unleashing scent of wild jasmine

“i seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times, 
in life after life, in age after age forever.” 
― rabindranath tagore

october, 2014.

if there's anything i miss from my childhood home
is seeing the patio's floor covered in little white blossoms,
being drunk with the sweet scent of jasmine
on rainy, hot summer nights.

the first thing i'll do whenever we move to a home with a patio or yard
will be to run to the greenhouse and get me some jasmines.

(i'm still here, i'm still busy. soon i will have some free time, i hope)

hope you have a wonderful day


in bloom

"i am losing precious days. i am degenerating into a machine for making money. 
i am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. 
i must break away and get out into the mountains to learn the news."
john muir

october, 2014.

it's been months since i took a film photograph
and months of me neglecting this blog have passed.
i blame it on too much work,
the increasing costs of film rolls & labs,
and mostly on this little thing called instagram,
which is ever so addictive (and way, way cheaper!)

hopefully, sometime this year m. & i will be proper home owners
and all this effort will have been worth it
and things will be calmer, maybe even easier.
hopefully, i will have time for taking pictures and doing simple things;
and hopefully i'll even be able to get away from the city once or twice.
i miss the countryside
and the mountains
and the sea
and all things wild and free.
i miss them with my body and i miss them with my soul.


some films on a friday

gate of hell / black narcissus (and the red shoes) / onibaba / mulholland dr. (and blue velvet) / in the mood for love (and chungking express & 2046)
only lovers left alive / freaks / phenomena (and profondo rosso & suspiria) / cría cuervos / the wind rises
days of heaven / scanners (and videodrome) / the mirror / tess (and repulsion) / viridiana

since there's no film friday today, nor any friday during january,
i thought i'd do a little recap of some of the snobbish films i liked the most this year.
there's only one image per director, but really,
i love all of wong kar-wai, lynch and argento's films alike.
and early cronenberg. and powell & pressburger. and...

and here is the complete list of the films i watched in 2014
including the ones i loved, the ones i didn't like at all,
some guilty pleasures & the always entertaining shameful ones.

hope you all had a wonderful start of the year!
