No U-Turns here?

Sitting down and thinking about it, if I could go back in time a couple of years, there are some things I would do differently.

Some decisions that I have taken over the course of this time haven't really panned out and I am sure if I had put a little more thought into it at the time, life, in general would be different - better.

But then, there is no such thing as retrospective enlightenment. You don't get here unless you've been there and lived through it.


... a waste of time.

Silver Lining

A few days ago, continuing the sporadic exchange of songs me and
Sudnya conduct, I was asked to listen to 'Viva La Vida' by Coldplay... the title track of their new album. Apparently, she has shifted focus to another track on the album because she asked me to listen to 'Strawberry Swing' and I also spied this.

But it so happens that I've been listening to that song for a couple of months now and its been in the while(1) phase several times. The part that most stuck in my mind was the conclusion ...

Now the sky could be blue
I don’t mind
Without you it’s a waste of time
Could be blue
I don’t mind
Without you it’s a waste of time

Well the sky could be blue
Could be grey
Without you I’m just miles away

Well, the sky could be blue
I don’t mind
Without you it’s a waste of time



long way

All that you touch and all that you see
all that you taste, all you feel
and all that you love and all that you hate
all you distrust, all you save
and all thatyou give and all that you deal
and all that you buy, beg, borrow or steal
and all you create and all you destroy
and all that you do and all that you say
and all that you eat and everyone you meet
and all that you slight and everyone you fight
and all that is now and all that is gone
and all that's to come and everything under the sun is in tune
but the sun is eclipsed by the moon

~ Pink Floyd

It seems they are trying to say that whatever you try to do, accomplish, work towards, sometimes the goalposts might just move a little bit further away. When you are engulfed by darkness, all the joy and happiness you can muster from within and all the good that is to come will be eclipsed.

And of course, in the end, it doesn't make any difference at all. Matter of Fact, its all Dark.


Tunnel Vision


Sometimes the tunnel is so long and winding, you cannot tell if there is light at the end of the tunnel or if you will emerge in total darkness - lost - not knowing where to go or what to do.

What one can hope for, however, is that there are tiny specks of light along the way to show you that you are on the right path - that you aren't lost yet. Just a little bit of reassurance.
