It was a Monday. Not just any Monday, but the Monday where teachers celebrate the Teachers' Day in school. And I ended that day depressed.

Tashiboo has passed away.
Confirmed by a specialist on Thursday.

After 5 years or so,
After all those memories,
After all those editing,
After all those GW and MMOs,
After all those assignments,
After all those torrent-ing, downloading, uploading, bookmarking,
And after all those traveling,
He passed.

Thank you.
Gonna be hard to find a replacement.
You are after all, a part of me.

In Uthenera

Been playing Dragon Age: Origins for a while now thanks to Seng Chee. These song captivates me, not only because of the FMV in the game, but the words in the song too.


hahren na melana sahlin
emma ir abelas
souver'inan isala hamin
vhenan him dor'felas
in uthenera na revas

vir sulahn'nehn
vir dirthera
vir samahl la numin
vir lath sa'vunin

Translated from the elven tongue:

elder your time is come
now I am filled with sorrow
weary eyes need resting
heart has become grey and slow
in waking sleep is freedom

we sing, rejoice
we tell the tales
we laugh and cry
we love one more day

-- From "In Uthenera," traditional elven song of unknown origin.
