"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

simple things

how i love the simple things,
the simple things just are...

-- Simple Things, Jim Brickman featuring Rebecca

i've been listening to this song for 4 days now. i've set the music player to repeat mode so everytime the song ends, it starts again and just goes on and on. i'm not yet tired of hearing it and perhaps i never will. oh geez... help? no, no, not yet, just let me be.

see, it's like my grilled blue marlin. my what? yes, it's like my 'official' favorite lunchtime order, grilled blue marlin. when i don't want to think and i just want to eat, i know where to go and i know what to say to the person behind the counter: grilled blue marlin. having set grilled blue marlin as my 'official' lunchtime order, i don't have to think much about lunchtime food and i don't have to worry about my appetite. in the same light, having set simple things as the 'official' song in my music player, i don't have to waste seconds in thinking of what songs to listen to. there's simple things in repeat mode and since it's not the kind of song that'll give me a headache in the long run, i don't have to bother looking for other songs to listen to. heck, am i making sense? whatever. bottomline, i don't tax my brain thinking too much of things that don't really require much thinking. the only drawback, if you can call it that, is that i'm now 'addicted' to simple things.

"after all the clouds go by,
the simple things remain"

i think i'm now ready for my concert with jim brickman on piano and rebecca as my chuchua... este back-up singer. hehehe. adik?

guess the name of my 'official' online photo gallery. it's simple... as in simple things, mwahahaha!
