this is my birthday deviation for ... me ♥ .

What's the meaning of this voyage ?
To talk in a dream
So many bends and these years we've been together passed

And all this time we were tremendously excited
About everything we saw
Everything we had talked about
Every detail of every moment that had passed

too many things to be said .
Our life will begin now . . .
Ready
One, two ... three ...



"I hope the seasons treat you well
I hope the seasons treat you kind
as kind as I never was
as comforting as I never could be

I hope this new season
brings you the cold air
I'm sure the wind blows gently on you now
I hope that nothing
will ever remind you of me..."



-carissas wierd .


Since these spider Lilies usually bloom near cemeteries around the autumnal equinox, they are described in Chinese and Japanese translations of the Lotus Sutra as ominous flowers that grow in 地 獄(also known as Hell), and guide the dead into the next reincarnation.
A famous legend is of two elves: 曼 珠, who guarded the flower, and 沙 華 who guarded the leaves. Out of curiosity, they defied their fate of guarding the herb alone, and managed to meet each other. At first sight, they fell in love ♥ with each other. G.O.D, exasperated by their waywardness, separated the miserable couple, and laid a curse on them as a punishment: the flowers of 曼 珠 shall never meet the leaves of 沙 華 again.
It was said that when the couple met after death in hell , they vowed to meet each other after reincarnation. However, neither of them could keep their words. ♥

Some other legends have it that when a person sees someone that they may never meet again, these flowers, also called red spider lilies, would bloom along the path. Perhaps because of these sorrowful legends .



believe it or not , they are in my path . ♥



this room has so many windows
too many windows

If you like anime , may I recomend "shakugan no Shana"
Because even though it's not famous like sailor moon or K-on! .
it is a story about a couple of students fighting against a few things but , mostly , it's bout how will they work both together and 
relationship stuffs ...idk. Sometimes I watch and I like and , 
sometimes I don't so , you should look it up and see for yourself .
i feel related to the characters somehow .
