R.I.P. Gabo

Another star has been born in the vast sky. A new light will now guide our nights... and it goes by the name of Gabriel García Marquez.
The author of my favorite book, "Love in the Time of Cholera" died yesterday in Mexico city, at the age of 87.

Marquez, or as we dearly call him, "Gabo"; is credited with helping create and define "magical realism" as a literary genre by injecting fantastical elements into realistic scenes. He wrote one of a kind novels, poems, short stories and journalism articles.

In 1982, he became the first Colombian and only the fourth Latin American author to win the Nobel Prize.

His prolific writing will sure keep touching souls, as he did with mine. And let's not forget his greatest work, "Cien años de soledad", (One hundred years of solitude), written in 1967.

In honor of his memory, here are some of my favorite quotes from him:

“It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams.”
“Nobody deserves your tears, but whoever deserves them will not make you cry."

“my heart has more rooms in it than a whore house” 

“The only regret I will have in dying is if it is not for love.” 
― Gabriel Garcí­a MárquezLove in the Time of Cholera

"You can be in love with many at the same time
without betraying any of them"

she tried twice and failed...

"She was bored. She loved, had capacity to love, for love, to give and accept love. Only she tried twice and failed twice to find somebody not just strong enough to deserve it, earn it, match it, but even brave enough to accept it.
— William Faulkner, The Town

drawing room: to feel

I don't know if it's a good thing or a bad thing..
to feel everything so deeply...

dark tuesday

(all images via porcelanowo)

 All the blogs are very coachella-esque right now... I'm kinda getting sick of it.
Sadly, I don't share the mood... haters gonna hate, right?

I just haven't been feeling well lately.
I'm starting to get lost again.
I'm starting to question what I do, what I don't do...
I'm starting to doubt my purpose here..
I'm starting to get bored with my life again..
I'm starting to... I don't even know what this feeling is all about anymore, I just have it...
The darkness found me, again...
