my stylish heart
|||||::i've just seen a face:the beatles::||]|
today, was an extraordinary day.
the snow and the ice has almost completely melted. there were sunny skies and cool breezes. i came home after work and opened my windows. read manga over fresh brewed coffee. a fresh breeze wafted over my desk and i didn't even mind the sound from the auto shop across the street.
i meant to get some work done on the next page (yes, i really am working on it) but ended up falling in love with a new (to me) manga called Manga no Tsukurikata.
i must say, falling in love with new characters has gotten me out of my slump.
then, as i'm finishing up the last few chapters, lia calls and asks if i wanted her to pick up dinner. she's so thoughtful. when i'm not feeling selfish, i'm feeling extremely lucky.
if we hadn't met, i don't know that i would have any inspiration to draw girls' love manga. she kinda taught me that all of those stupid romances don't have to be so far fetched. stuff like that really does happen. Manga no Tsukurikata is about two female mangaka's that have a relationship of a sort (it's complicated). but what struck me is a part where one of them goes on the internet and sees what people are saying about her manga and is totally devastated. she vows to never draw manga again and the other girl tells her that she likes her manga and that's all that matters. that she can make her manga just for her. and i think, even if just lia believes in me, that's okay.
lately i've been listening to lia's rubber soul album a lot. it's probably in my top 3 beatles albums of all time. i just wish her record player had better speakers.
i've just seen a face,
i can't forget the time or place where we just met,
she's just the girl for me
and i want all the world to see we've met
had it been another day
i might have looked the other way
and i'd have never been aware
and as it is, i dream of her tonight
la, di, di, da di di
falling, yes i am falling
and she keeps calling me back again
i have never known
the likes of this, i've been alone
and i have missed things and kept out of sight
but other girls were never quite like this
