Bumblebee Sunglasses for the Future

Thursday, January 8, 2009

It’s been gloomy since the first day of the year. Every morning I wake up to overcast skies, with nary a hint of sunlight peeking through. With the economically and environmentally perilous times we now live in, I’m afraid it looks like the future could even be gloomier.

My being a reluctant pessimistic worrywart taught me one thing though. The things I worry about most never happen. With or without my worrying about the ifs, buts, could, would or should, the future is going to take care of itself. By the law of averages, whatever bad is happening now is ineluctably going to turn around. And as one sensible person told me, “Don't fret. The best is yet to come. The future is so bright that you'll need to wear your bumblebee sunglasses.”

Though it involves a radical dismantlement of everything I have known or a lifestyle that doesn’t require any sunglasses, I am avid for the future. I embrace life however precarious it is.

Sodom and Gomorrah must have been really interesting cities, don't you think? :)
