The Notebook

my dearest allie,

i don’t know what to say anymore except that i couldn’t sleep last night because i knew that it is over between us. it is a different feeling for me, one that i never expected, but looking back, i suppose it couldn’t have ended another way.

you and i were different. we came from different worlds, and yet you were the one who taught me the value of love. you showed me what it was like to care for another, and i am a better man because of it. i don’t want you to ever forget that.

i am not bitter because of what has happened. on the contrary, i am secure in knowing that what we had was real, and i am happy we were able to come together for even a short period of time. and if, in some distant place in the future, we see each other in our new lives, i will smile at you with joy, and remember how we spent a summer beneath the trees, learning from each other and growing in love. and maybe, for a brief moment, you’ll feel it too, and you’ll smile back, and savor the memories we will always share together.

i love you, allie.


they say, behind every great love, there’s a great story. the excerpt above is from the book by nicholas sparks called “the notebook“. it is a great love story. and it’s even better in the movie. i saw the screening last week, and i surprise myself to be really drawn into the movie. i’m not a big fan of love stories, but this one hits the jackpot, at least for me. i’ve read the book before i saw the movie, and the movie was.. for once, even better.

the movie doesn’t open until this friday (june 25) .. i’ll do my review on movies411 soon. one suggestion when you go to the theater .. bring lotsa tissues!! i’m not a crier, so i didn’t cry, but most of the women from the screening came out with tears in their eyes. oh .. and one more thing, ryan gosling is hot! he’s a good enough reason to see this movie. 🙂
