Here is one of my favourite drawings. It is unsigned and undated, so I have no idea how many decades it has been. Each time I look at it, Sarah Mclachlan’s Angel starts playing in my head. I almost forgot what this portrait is about other than it being the cover of some film. Google works wonders and I found out it is from City of Angels!
Looking through old things really show how we have grown. My understanding of the lyrics is different now. Very different, in fact. I did not even remember the storyline of City of Angels. And the show does not even feature the song. Hah!
Spend all your time waiting for that second chance
For a break that would make it okay
There’s always some reason to feel not good enough
And it’s hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction
Oh a beautiful release
Memory seeps from my veins
Let me be empty
Oh and weightless and maybe
I’ll find some peace tonight
– Sarah McLachlan, Angel
OMG. I just had a déjà vu moment like I have written about this before.
And shucks. Yes, I did. I found an old forgotten blog from 2006 which I wrote in Chinese. And I still managed to log in?! Similar theme as now, but with a different pair of eyes. Sigh. I have no idea what Universe is trying to tell me. And yes, it fits today’s prompt Constant perfectly.
This sucks, man. I was still wondering what to write about “Constant” as I always find it ironic that the most constant in life is the fact that we grow – bigger, older, wiser, smaller, slower, faster, happier, sadder.
Universe sending reminders. gosh.
Sorry if words don’t flow today. It is just shocking. Universe does not accept reasons (/excuses) like feigning amnesia.
