Random Solitary Thoughts

I've learnt... in recent times...

Struck with the developments in my life, I came to see some things which I seem to have lost track before. Most are old highways that I failed to travel or procastinated against for reasons of my own.

Now, taking a step back from it all, I see things from a very different perspective. It's like standing at the top of a peak looking down at the dawn of a new day (someday I have just got to hike up mount Kinabalu for that experience), and seeing how beautiful things really are. No, not perfect, but beautiful all the same (I have to admit, I'm a bit of a tree-hugger).

It's like accomplishing that project and seeing your work out there (a luxury I didn't have much of a chance to experience)! That's something that has got to change.

I've learnt some lessons which I thought I had learnt, but apparently not well enough. Sometimes people are afraid to change. To accept change. But people do change. And sometimes, it helps to change too...

Recovering the satellites... by The Counting Crows

"Gonna get back to basics
Guess I'll start it up again
I'm falling from the ceiling
You're falling from the sky now and then..."

The past week has been hell for mild-mannered Kalamari. So he sits in his lifeless cubicle, contemplating his next move, his options. Plenty of things to do, too many to do all at once. In his solitude, he seeks out the meaning of life... and finds it... hidden in the dictionary under the desk...

But tough as it may be, Kalamari can be thankful for the support shown to him by friends and family alike. Without them, he wouldn't have pulled through quite as much as he did.

And so with the lights dimming, and the rain splattering on the window, he packs up his bag and heads for the door. Another day, another day. The mundane repetitions that we each take for granted. Somehow he felt thankful for they remind him of happy times. Good times.

He smiled in the darkness, and waves to Multipurpose Man, seated in his place, doing what he was summoned to do. And trust me, it is something he does very well...

In memory of friends...
