It's 5.53 in the morning. This is my usual quiet time for reflection and strangely, not to sound cliche, time flies when you are having fun.
HBO is airing the last 10 mintues of "The Breakup". Interestingly, the song, "I Can See Clearly Now" by Jonny Cash, is playing while the credits run. The lines go,
I can see clearly now The rain is gone I can see all obstacles in my way Gone are the clouds ...[lost in the credits] It's gona be a bright, bright sunshiny day.
Next comes the arcapella version of "Rainbow Connection". This is funny. I cannot help but be intrigued by life's poignant moments like this. Pardon my pensive state.
I had a discussion with some people last night about changes, among other things on MSN. Strange that everything somehow comes together and you see a little clearer down the road.
Why do situations or people change? Is the change for better or worse? Why do some people go through change behaving or rather, appearing callous to it while some, get weighed down with emotional baggage? Do we embrace change for survival reasons? Are the former better survivors while the latter less adept?
A colleague observed last week, "You know you are not like them."
Okay, here are the changes that made the S2 headlines :
1) the field undergoing a makeover 2) boys who transit from lower to upper secondary exhibiting mood swings - what they termed as being "emo" 3) AFGM stepping up to its true calling 4) increasing callousness 5) Letting go of the groups I've committed my energies to in the past - the leaders, the S4 Express batch, 2A
Life with its funny twists and turns promises the only certainty - change.
