tWinKLe LIttlE sTars WOnder WONDer
I was crossing the over-head bridge, when I notice about 8 stars glittering over the night sky. I was caught by the view that I stand motionless and stare at them for like 10 seconds (I was like woah, and I just felt so re-charge and high like a new Dura-cell battery used in the pink rabbit; you know that old commercial . . . more stars begin to appear right in front of me after the 10secs stare.
Tilting my head upwards and continue walking, the stars like out of the blue ‘disappear’ when I pass a street lamp (it was then i recalled I’d read somewhere that our retina will adapt to the dark when exposed to it for a period of time and thus able to see ‘clearer’ in dim sky; but once exposed to bright light, the ‘adaptation’ is reset and hence the star appeared to be ‘vanishing’). Interesting yea? And and, 1 can differentiate stars from planet by whether it flicker or not, a star will flicker but not planet.
Sigh, light pollution over here in Singapore just made it harder to spot those dazzling diamond.
Really had this urge to have a super-duper mega pixel camera to take picture of those stars, a telescope to view them, a ‘star directory’, in short pick up star gazing as a hobby? But time time time. . . and $$$ for those accessories. . . or perhaps is just another of kai’s ‘3 mins of passion’ (those Chinese proverb) =,=
Right anyway when I reached down, I noticed this snail on the pavement, thinking someone may squash it and for some other unknown reasons I pick him out and place it on the grass patch (NOTE: this is not something I would do usually), was baffled on my own actions afterwards. . . reach home was like so chirpy instead of the usual tired, gloomy gesture. Is it those wonder of the stars?
Perhaps just perhaps, maybe someone can come out with this starry-therapy since there are dolphins, music, even horses therapy outta there, why not stars I thought =/
Gazing them and see who spot a particular stars with some one special will be lovely too=]]
This song revolved round the word ‘if’. ‘If I could, this, that’ is a common quote in people these days, I meant what done is done, there no point whining ‘if I could only. . .’; more ever ‘if’ already means impossible, saying ‘if’ only made 1 feels more regretful, sinking deeper to remorseful , into regression. Bottom-line instead of ‘if’, why not just look ahead and see that as a lesson learnt, a steeping stone for future endeavor! Having said that, it is always easy to state a statement and ‘counsel’ others, but is always hard to ‘counsel’ oneself. The hardest person to seep into is you yourself! That is precisely why we need close friends, spouse, parent, brothers etc, in time of resentment.
Sometime we need something really bad to happen in order for a particular message to be sent across, and that’s me. To be frank that kind of lesson learnt will just slip away in a matter of times~ goosH, ding, dang, gosh, baM, bish @______@
Well anyway, finally found YUI’s latest album lyric translation, was actually all the while in my ‘favorite page’ (never notice till lately =’=) I’m surprise that her songs now is kind of dark, sad and as usual impact-ful. Sometime people review their feelings through poetry, expression and for YUI is music, I think. For example in her ‘thank you my teens’, she wrote ‘Just singing
Turning any pain into a new song right away
Just by doing that, I was able to turn it into strength’
So how many ‘painful’ songs she wrote depicts how sad she is?
Anyway some ‘quotes’ from her songs that really is power pack! Just to list a few yea~
-in ‘why’ she wrote ‘Why do people have words?
They make our hearts harder to see’
-in ‘highway chance’ she wrote ‘It’s like getting on the highway from a loop road – that kind of image
You push forward, but the reality is
It’s lying in the palm of someone’s hand’.
