Gossip Girl: Summer, Kind of Wonderful


Hey Upper East Siders! With the warm breeze in the air, it looks like winter is officially over and things are heating up.

Some would say summer is their busiest season. Will you be partying in Ibiza or tanning in Saint-Tropez? Nothing beats a summer abroad and word is Kane is planning a getaway.

Spotted: K heading East. To the fabled land of India in search of the love monument Taj Mahal. Too bad for Lonely Boy, he's going to be ... all alone.

"So… you're really going alone to India next month huh?" V said.
"Yes honey. Eat Pray Love part two," I replied.

"Well, don't forget. It's Eat Pray Love, not Eat Love!"

"Hahaha. Gaga ka talaga. But isn't it fun that I'll be learning about Hinduism and the Kama Sutra all at the same time. Talk about enriching your body and your soul."

"OMG honey. Holy and sinful at the same time. I love it," V said. "But … all those contortions. Can your body still take it? You're not exactly a young feathered thing anymore."

"Hahaha. I know!!! I'll have to manage."

"Oh boy. Mahuhulasan ang mga lalaki mo pag-uwi mo. (Your men in Manila will definitely be in for a surprise when you get back.) You're not the same girl … same girl ..." V said, singing the lines.

"Hahaha. Gaga ka. (Fucker.) But I'm actually excited to have an entire summer with nothing to do but figure things out."

"What for?" V said. "All the drama, that's who you are. Just like I'm someone who's not going to stop searching for love just because I lost it. Which is why I'm going directly into the belly of the beast."



"OMG honeyyyyyyyyyyyy. Mag ga Galera ka? (You're going to Galera?) Without me??????????????"

"Well, I'm a big girl and I'll be fine. Who knows? Maybe Prince Charming will be there among the beasts."

"Who knows?" I said and smiled wistfully.

"Although I doubt it. Everyone's looking for a spark but that won't even do for me. Gusto ko talagang masasabi kong (I want to be able to say) 'Baby… you're a firework'."

We were both laughing and then we were quiet for awhile.

"Well, I hope we both find what we're looking for," I told V, smiling softly at him.

Buddha once said "There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to the truth; not going all the way, and not starting."
So we set out for far away places and try to find ourselves. Or... try to lose ourselves. Exploring pleasures we've never tried before.
The problems start when we refuse to allow change to happen and cling to old habits. Because if we hold on to the past too tight, the future may never come.

Ahh.... Just remember two lines from a poem that Emperor Shah Jahan wrote about the Taj Mahal, monument to his beloved wife:

"The sight of this mansion creates sorrowing sighs;
And the sun and the moon shed tears from their eyes."

Have a great trip! :)

Enjoy the Taj. Wear inexpensive slip-ons as you'll take these off before entering. And careful of the squirrels outside. Not sure if there are interesting boys around.

Guyrony said...

Don't tell me it's another alone time for K?

Spiral Prince said...

This just occurred to me:

What will you do when you do find something life-changing and unlooked for in India, Kane? Will you stay there?
