I can't remember what it is exactly that I wanted to write here, but I know I was haunted the whole weekend with the thought that I ought to write a journal update. Maybe to just brush away the desperate cry about having writer's block, which I kinda grew out of apparently though I am not writing at my normal debit yet. However, more poems are being cooked up ^.^

What I do remember is how excited I got when I heard that Shusaku Endo's book "Silence" will become a movie this year. He is a really good japanese author, living, unfortunately, in the shadow of the two Murakamis. Do you know what's really extraordinary about him? I for one couldn't care less about the persecution of the jesuits from Japan in the 17th century - which is what "Silence" is about - but somehow his book kept me hooked from beginning to the end. Other beautiful works from him, which I can vouch for, are "A wonderful fool" and "The samurai". His works usually depict the journey either of a foreigner into Japan, or of a japanese into Europe and the clash of cultures. 

"Far from the maddening crowd" is also getting a movie this year and I'm looking forward to it, though I haven't yet read the book and ... my favorite movie to come ... "The day of the triffids" :woohoo: because the book was really good!


Take care! :blowkiss:
