Last Day of 2009

It's the last day of the year 2009, which has seen so many celebrity deaths and Ponzi schemes exposed and financial meltdown... and on a more personal level, a couple of changes and new experiences with many moments of self-doubt and also immense unexplainable joy. It's been another crazy year but nonetheless enjoyable - especially December!

So how am I spending these last hours? Reading about a murder case whilst savouring good bossa nova by Stan Getz, Joao Gilberto and Antonio Carlos Jobim. What irony!?! Some Chinese PhD candidate at Virginia Tech decapitated the girl who rejected his love at a cafe on my birthday earlier this year. And now he's sentenced to life in prison. He doesn't even look like a murderer. He looks decent. Just proves again that one can't judge what's going on in the mind.

How strange that life just goes on. A death, however devastating or heart-wrenching at the present time, is just another ripple that eventually fades away and becomes a shadow which people remember at the back of their minds. Nothing really stops the world from turning.

P.S: this is the mid-afternoon lethargic mind high on bossa speaking...
