if you've been hated, you've also been loved.










walking the southern ridges was rather picturesque, though it started raining when we got to hortpark (somewhere near NUS and towards the end of our walk.) the henderson waves was architectural prettiness!

today, i was reacquainted with bach as i browsed the classical section in borders.


this cantata is beautiful - it's gentle, moving and sounds exactly like what it's named - sheep may safely graze.

finished henry james's lengthy classic the portrait of a lady yesterday. the scene of the protagonist's cousin ralph touchett's death broke me up into tiny pieces inside.

Isabel Archer: "I don't care for anything but you, and that's enough for the present. It will last a little yet. Here on my knees, with you dying in my arms, I'm happier than I have been for a long time. And I want you to be happy-- not to think of anything sad; only to feel that I'm near you and I love you. Why should there be pain--? In such hours as this what have we to do with pain? That's not the deepest thing; there's something deeper."

...

Ralph Touchett: "And remember this," he continued, "that if you've been hated you've also been loved. Ah but, Isabel--ADORED!" he just audibly and lingeringly breathed.

ah my heart!
