"Czech Girl" is one of the chapters in my next book
Haven't written anything yet, but this is the episode I've been wanting to write about for ages
Perhaps I decided to write this book only for writing this small story about her
I met this girl from Czech while I was visiting Barcelona for a couple of days in Nov 2016
It was "romance"
Short, yet everything in it
Probably everyone has this kind of romance in our lifetime
Until a couple of years ago, memory of this Czech girl came to my mind from time to time
Just passing through my mind for a moment
Didn't bring me anything significant
Didn't cause me any emotional reaction
But there was always something shining in it
There was always something slightly sweet in it
And I always didn't know what to do with this memory
Time passed and now I have the way to deal with it
which is writing
But what do I want to achieve by writing about her now?
If I write, will it enable me to meet her again?
Most probably, no
Or, do I want to meet her in the first place?
Well, not really
Probably I'm not interested in this Czech girl itself
Probably what I'm interested is......memory
Memory of spending time with her
This is what still shines in my mind
And my want of writing about it is probably.......
to catch this transient twinkling and make this ephemeral shine eternal
An eternally shining in my mind
My un-invadable memory
only I have
nobody can invade
