close to the sea


Karia, a killer whale at SeaWorld San Diego, has perfected a technique in which he lures birds close before lunging towards his prey. In the clip, sea birds are seen assembled at the side of the pool and are more than interested in the fishy morsels offered up by Kalia.However, the powerful sea beast is merely tempting the birds to be within striking distance of his powerful jaws.

I fought it a lot and it seems a lot like flesh is all I got,
Not anymore, flesh out the door, swat,
I must’ve forgot, you can’t trust me,
I’m open a moment and close when you show it,
Before you know it I’m lost at sea,
And now that I write and think about it,
And the story unfolds,
You should take my life, you should take my soul

You are a tide,
coming back to the shore
in steady rhythms,
sometimes carrying drift wood with you,
from time to time stormy,
or gentle as a breeze,
swirling around my toes
but leaving before the water reaches my ankles,
never actually getting close.

// Lee Min Ho and Jun Ji Hyun sweet moments behind the scenes of Legend of the Blue Sea

Blogger’s Note : I just love how comfortable they are with each other. They become really close. No wonder that while watching the drama there is just spark between them that I can’t help but to admire the story [esp. jun jae and chung’s love story] and their chemistry, and this is my first time seeing something like this. Cheers to Lee Min Ho and Jun Ji Hyun! Fighting!

Why I Stopped Babysitting.

(warning: very long story)

The last day I spent with Addy started with a long novel of a text message at six am. His mom, Kathy, had an out of town family emergency. She was incredibly vague about what was actually happening, but insisted that it was urgent, and that I really needed to watch Addy for the day. Since I was on break, and I liked Addy slightly more than I disliked Kathy, I told her I was on my way. When I stepped in the door, she stepped out. She looked disheveled, to say the least.

“Thank you so much sweety, I’ll be home as soon as I can.” Without even waiting for a response she got into her car, and I closed the door.

Addy was on the ground surrounded by a sea of legos.

“Hey, what are you building buddy?” I got as close as I could without crushing anything and squatted down.
