Constancy

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.

你想去的地方就是我的方向

专属天使

我不会怪你对我的伪装
天使在人间是该藏好翅膀
人们愚蠢鲁莽而你纤细善良
怎能让你为了我被碰伤
小小的手掌厚厚的温暖
你总能平复我不安的夜晚
不敢想的梦想透过你的眼光
我才看见它原来在前方

没有谁能把你抢离我身旁
你是我的专属天使
唯我能独占
没有谁能取代你在我心上
拥有一个专属天使
我哪里还需要别的愿望

小小的手掌大大的力量
我一定也会像你一样飞翔
你想去的地方就是我的方向
有我保护笑容尽管灿烂

要不是你出现
我一定还在沉睡
绝望的以为生命只有黑夜
