You know what?

We're never really as important as we would like to believe.

We're all expendable, we're all replaceable.

True, some of us can be quite important relatively speaking, maybe if you're like, President of some superpower with a nuclear arsenal or CEO of a billion dollar business empire. But for the vast majority of us, in the grand scheme of things, we're just like every other schmo we meet in the street, desperately fighting a silent war against anonymity, against obscurity, even if it is within our own small spheres of existence, seeking to find our place in this world.

From day one we were always taught that we are special, that we are unique. That's actually quite true, but the supreme irony is that if everyone is unique, then uniqueness is nothing more than the ultimate equalizer, since being unique is absolute. No one can be "more unique" than others. In being different, in other words, we are all the same.

Far away
This ship is taking me far away
Far away from the memories
Of the people who care if I live or die

Starlight
I will be chasing the starlight
Until the end of my life
I don't know if it's worth it anymore

Hold you in my arms
I just wanted to hold
You in my arms

My life
You electrify my life
Let's conspire to re-ignite
All the souls that would die just to feel alive

But I'll never let you go
If you promised not to fade away
Never fade away

Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations
Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations

Hold you in my arms
I just wanted to hold
You in my arms

Far away
This ship is taking me far away
Far away from the memories
Of the people who care if I live or die

And I'll never let you go
If you promise not to fade away
Never fade away

Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations
Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations

Hold you in my arms
I just wanted to hold
You in my arms
I just wanted to hold

The best kind of "do" ever. :-)

At a loss for words....

It's been a couple of weeks since I last posted an entry. I dunno. I guess my heart just wasn't in it.

It's not as if I have nothing to write about. In fact I have a lot of pending posts, as well as a lot more ideas in my head, just waiting to be translated into blog posts. But for some reason, I couldn't get myself to start or finish any of them.

Maybe it's blogger's fatigue, if anything like that exists. I've been fighting it off for several months now, but I suppose this is my worst attack. Almost three weeks without any new post. It was bound to happen I guess, I've been blogging for almost three years now, and sometimes...it just becomes a chore. Failing to update my blog has its negative effects, as my number of visitors has gone way, way down. But it can't be helped.

So what now? Is this a prelude to quitting blogging altogether? Probably not. I'm not into it at this time, but it doesn't mean that I'm quitting. I probably need some t…
