l We Apologise For The Inconvenience: countdown commences

November 6, 2007

countdown commences

the wick is lit, its fate set in motion with a known ending. why, then, did it come as such a shock when later that evening these were found gone out? one knows what's coming, but sometimes the enormity of the situation doesn't quite register till the very end, sneaking up slowly from behind and sucking all the air out leaving you watching, suffocated.

well, I might be a bit baseless in judging your character, however, assuming that your analogy of the burning candles representing the futility of life because it ends in death (the "enormity of the situation") is indeed what you intended to convey, then it's natural for me to assume that you're a bit grumpy, people in a good mood see candles as candles and not worry about how they will eventually go out (or at least don't think about their own mortality)

aah, no it wasn't about the mortality or futility of life at all, but more along the lines of knowing what's going to happen in the future, be it a couple of hours away, or a couple of years down the road, but not thinking about it till it's right on top of you. it's a not-quite-mild-but-not-shocking surprise, when it shouldn't be.

other than that, yes, i will admit that posts usually follow an off day. more often than not that's the inspiration behind the text accompanying a photograph.
