fucking fathersday

I hope that you die
and your death will come soon
i'll follow your casket in the pale afternoon
and i'll see you get lowered into your deathbed
and i'll stand on your grave till i'm sure that you're dead.



Mummy, am i wet enough?

Ilia's godfather and Arne, the pirate seperated from us by splashing water

Yesterday we went to an amazing park, with a huge maze, petting zoo, playground, not that far from the Belgian Border. Arne and Ilia had so much fun (and were only in bed around 9.30!) and so did Koen and I. The weather was absolute brilliant so that really made the day.

boyish girl or girlish boy?

i wish i knew

yesterday, at les nuits botanique, i saw a wonderful girl perform. Just her and her guitar, it was too moving to be true (and later i discovered that she's a very nice girl as well!) Her voice was so utterly brilliant, i think it makes angels drool ;)
Ronja, sweety, don't know why, but i had to think about you... loved every second of it... here's one of her songs, or at least one of the lyrics of her songs ;)

i wish i knew
what to do with you
but the truth is
i ain't got a clue
do you?
i wish i had an idea
of what i need
but we can't know
and that's okay
that's okay
i wish you'd understand
i wish that i could know
the truth is i have no idea
i wish i could just run around
and only worry
about right now
i hate to admit it
but i don't know shit
and neither do you
do you
that's good enough for me
for you
for now
as long as we can talk about it.

because i was in love

extremely loud and incredibly close

nope, not about ilia, but a very good intens book i'm reading by jonathan safran foer.

"Does it break my heart, of course, every moment of every day, into more pieces than my heart was made of, I never thought of myself as quiet, much less silent, I never thought about things at all, everything changed, the distance that wedged itself between me and my happiness wasn't the world, it wasn't the bombs or burning buildings, it was me, my thinking, the cancer of never letting go, is ignorance bliss, I don't know, but it's so painful to think, and tell me, what did thinking ever do for me, to what great place did thinking ever bring me? I think and think and think, I've thought myself out of happiness one million times, but never once into it."
