It has been over a year since I have been here. Nothing much has changed except for the prices and a few of the food shops have be swapped out, replaced by equally doomed establishments erected under the shadow of KFC, Island Grille and Little Tokyo. What have I learned? Nothing really, except maybe there is no permanent way to live life to the fullest. Life is sea in a glass on a boat, it only stays full for a while and then you have wait to fill it up again.
I could easily forget the rain that fell just yesterday but there are droplets that linger. I could plot a chart on the red wall for every street and corner but the lines would not fit. I could leave this place right now and drive to the end of the earth but I would drown in the sea beyond. There are always limits to how fast you can go. I think it has to do with the speed of light.
It's like going back to where you used to live and seeing all your old friends and not knowing what to say to them because so much time has pasted. The world has turned a thousand times. The world is constantly turning whether you are here or not. What you don't know can't hurt you but hind sight is 20/20.
