Back to the end-of-the-world-is-nigh theme, my friend Sayesha once said something to the effect that we have a lot more urgent things to do before the sky will fall on our heads. Wise words, but what am I doing these days that will help solve either problem?
Driving on the way to Sunset Gospel Bible Fellowship today, from the East Coast to the West, I couldn’t help but think to myself how intoxicatingly beautiful my country can be, in the evening, with its balmy breezes and gentle sunsets. And I couldn’t help but feel how blessed I am to have truly made friends from work who, in spite of our very different origins and stories, are able to share busy mornings, lazy afternoons, restful evenings and angsty late nights with such open hearts and broad minds. Thank you, gorgeous friends of the educational publishing industry, may our paths continue to converge beyond the immediate divergence.
And speaking of which, sometimes a movie makes me feel I’ve learnt something, and this is one of them that there. Not sure if I’m capable (in the short run) of watching a movie without Shahrukh Khan in it! Him together with Kajol, for that matter. Teehee. Aw, I’m just a wet tissue, aren’t I.
Here’s another exhausting movie — literally had to wash my face and take a nap afterwards (as with Kal Ho Naa Ho, aiyah). I admire the strength and sureness of emotion in the Bollywood movies I’ve watched in the past few weeks. One should be envious of such conviction! And I can see how easily one could get completely sidewinded, downshifted and basically uprooted by this sort of thing. Especially if you have the overactive imagination of madamoiselle here! Urp! Thanks, Sayesha. Ruining my life like this! Merci beaucoup, mon ami, vraiment.
