Double Dose Weekend 15.1. Neighbourhood Noise – A Haiku

Normally when getting to a new place there are new sounds that come with it. Some are pleasant, some are obnoxious, but unless the new place is a vacuum they’re certainly present. After a while those sounds start to fade into the background and become part of the everyday aural routine, only really noticed when you’re actively paying attention to them. That’s how it usually goes. For me it somehow went the other way around. When I moved into my new place I noticed how incredibly quiet it was, sometimes that was nice, sometimes not so much. Nearly half a year in now (wow, does time fly!) I’m actually noticing the various sounds more than ever. Noises from all sounds: delivery scooters, overly loud passersby, and recently my upstairs neighbours stomping around their apartment: it’s a whole lot of fun… Could be that that’s mostly the case when I’m writing and trying to focus, maybe it’s because this evening they all decided to let themselves be heard nearly simultaneously, but I still find it kind of striking. I can certainly live my life here perfectly fine, but hey, we all need to complain a bit from time to time, right? Best to do so creatively. ^_^

Neighbourhood Noise
Feet stomping above
Scooters and sirens whine past
Where are those earplugs?


Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.

Hi! ^_^
