STOLEN MOMENTS Diary #1
16 journalers for this copy...
El DIARIO nace en blanco. Todo BCer que lo reciba puede incluir en él lo que quiera: escritos, citas, fotos, dibujos... Puedes hablar de lo que quieras, pero me gustaría acotar el tema a algo muy concreto: cómo te sientes en este momento, en relación al libro, a tu vida, a tus sueños, a tus recuerdos. Es un diario de momentos concretos; de los momentos en los que abrimos ese libro y dejamos que nos robe un cachito de nuestra alma.
Y cuando alguien llegue a la última página... que lo devuelva a su creador. Entonces iniciaremos otro Bookring para que todo el mundo pueda leerlo.
La lista del BookRing, más abajo.
The STOLEN MOMENTS DIARY #1 BookRing is born the day before I'm going to turn the thirties. I had two choices: falling in the usual crisis or managing to make something really special. And this project (chimerical, perhaps) turned out to be the best option.
The DIARY is born blank-paged. Every BCer who finds it may include whatever he/she wants: writings, quotations, photos, drawings... You can tell us whatever you feel like to, but I'd rather stretch the subject to a very limited point: how do you feel right now, due to finding the book, your life, your dreams, your memories... This is a diary of concrete moments; of these moments in which we open that book and let it steal a little piece of our soul.
And when someone reaches the last page, send it back to its creator. Then, we'll start a new BookRing, so that everyone can read it.

going to Jenniewhite.
When I was 10, the Tinman said,
"Come visit me and we'll break bread.
We'll talk of things of which we know,
Of what we want,
And where we'll go.
The Emerald City was Tinman's goal,
To beg from the Wizard a heart.
I munched on my cakes,
And I sipped at my tea,
My journey just barely past "start".
When I was 20, the Cheshire cat smiled
At the madness of men
With their greed running wild.
He looked at me slyly and said,
"My dear girl -
Did you give your love freely?
Did you give it a whirl"?
That cat he did vanish,
but his grin stayed behind.
It continued to haunt me for days.
I thought of the Tinman and his search for a heart.
I thought of my life and it's ways.
And I thought of my love in a jungle so far,
And I wished that my heart was a gift,
I could pluck from my breast along with the pain,
And give it to Tinman who had nothing to gain,
But the grief and the tears that this gift would impart.
When I was 30, White Rabbit said,
"You're grown now,
You mustn't be late.
You know now my dear that the time it has come,
To grow up and be an adult.
But I smiled at White Rabbit and said, "I'll be late,
From heartache and worries, from which I must run.
With headaches and sorrows I'll not make a date,
My life must be happy, I'll not follow fate."
So White Rabbit paused and then said with a smile,
"You're grown, but your heart is a child".
But my heart it had gone to that jungle so far
and along with my Love it had died.
The Tinman had journeyed to find it for me,
A friend ever to the far end.
But my heart it had shriveled and puffed into dust.
To find it all whole, no it was not to be.
When I was 40, Toto said,
"Let's journey on to Oz again. I'm tired here, it's all so lame,
the days and nights are all the same".
So off we went,
along the way of yellow bricks and golden poppies,
Emerald skies and flying monkeys,
Yes, life it was a game.
And days were night and night was day and
Nothing was the same.
When I was 50, Wizard said,
"Your childish heart is a rock.
And a rock it can't feel, and a rock it can't touch and a rock it can't love -
My poor dear.
So just still yourself now and remember these words,
"Your heart it is beating inside of you now,
your heart it is loving inside of you now,
your heart it is feeling inside of you now,
your heart it will always be near".
And I felt that soft heart as I clasped at my breast,
And Tinman he smiled and said "I have mine".
We'll travel together -
Oh don't we feel fine? We feel and we hurt and we love and we ache".
I laughed and agreed for my lost lover's sake.
And we set down that brick road, all yellow and gold.
Our story just starting.
It's barely been told.
Dear YagoBCN - The story is worth telling only if there's love somewhere inside. Happy 30th birthday. Salud!
And now, on to Jennie White, my dear friend who kindly consented to letting me make this contribution before she added hers.
