ah sunflower, weary of time,
who countest the steps of the sun;
seeking after that sweet golden clime
where the traveller's journey is done...
- William Blake
I don't fancy flowers that much, but I like sunflowers. Maybe because I like the sun, we both like the sun. I don't fancy the color yellow either but I like green. Yellow really looks good when it backgrounds the green. They complement each other. I passed by UP Diliman on a weekend and chance upon few sunflowers on the way. They'll be in full bloom around middle of May (along with the fire trees and the golden showers).
I watched Danny Boyle and Alex Garland's spectacular sci-fi thriller, Sunshine the other day (for the lack of a better thing to do). I've been a fan of Boyle (seen Trainspotting, 28 Days Later, and Millions) and on a few times, Alex Garland too (The Tesseract). Sunshine has a rather tinge effect on me. I adore sci-fi films. But this one, lost me in the middle part. The first few scenes, I was rather wary. The film is audacious and it blew me away. A few minutes or so, I feared for my life and realizing a minute more that hey, I am just inside a theater with less than 10 people with me. Did you notice the irony? I both like and hate the film. I have no other way of justifying it.
I woke up really late this morning. Totally out of my habit. I blame it on the sunbeams.
