In heavy drops of rain,
the hand and face of warmth
I truly seek shelter from.
I remember the many times I feel a huge dark cloud above my head – the times that depression is creeping on my skin. And I remember the many times I fought those feeling by spending quality time with my family and friends or just do the things that I love doing. Lately though it has been difficult for me to get rid of my worries, so I have to keep on going. I have to keep getting busy.
And this is where I really crave for music from my favorite band the Foo Fighters, particularly the song “Next Year.” It has been my constant “Now Playing” for days not only because it is one of Foo Fighters’ most underrated songs (in my opinion at least) but also because of one significant moment when I stopped worrying and started… singing.
“The thing about the world is that it doesn’t have any extra pieces. It’s like pi: it contains everything. You remove a single piece, no circle. Your recklessness, your mistakes, are the reason why when they say, ‘You can’t change the world.’ you won’t listen. The world is better off with both of us in it… rather than the alternative.”
“If you think money can replace you, you haven’t seen the whole equation.”
— Harold Finch to Caleb Phipps, Person of Interest: “2πr” (Season 2, Episode 11)
In the “Note to Self” series, I write down words my mind and heart should fully remember. And I really should remember this.
