nature (x)aga

sorry everybody.  xanga says i have no pulse.  i can’t revive myself either.

genius is a (wo)man who has discovered how to increase the intensity of thought to the point where (s)he can freely communicate with sources of knowledge not available through the ordinary state of thought. – napoleon hill

………………………………

the early monday morning breeze felt uncanny when i woke up.  “there’s something unearthly about this day,” i said to myself while missing the absence of sunlight from my bedroom window.  the sky was gloomy, 40 degrees out and raining. still, the cold chills seeped in with the heater as i made plans and expectations for the day.

i was gonna write something divergent about the whimsical human touch of nature on this entry, but procrastination beat me to hold off my unwritten composition until sometime.  and then the event in virginia tech.  i don’t really get overrun with news and media but this event happened within 50 miles from where i live, let alone that i was near the area on an early sunday morning.  

around 5ish on a sunday morning, some good folks and i just got out of a 24/7 korean restaurant in virginia after celebrating one homegirl’s birthday in dc.  i left my ride at a parking lot in tyson’s corner; not realizing that security had already closed one garage entrance when we got back.   i thought i was gonna be crashing in my car but luckily one entrance was left open so i got out of the mall and drove back home…

that eventful monday afternoon, i caught up with one neighbor who just got back from grocery shopping.  “if i had a kid going to school there i would have pulled her out and sent her to a different college,” m frantically explained while taking the grocery bags off the rover.  she was upset about why it took the school a while to expediently respond to the situation.  

and funny as a typical monday seemed, i was still surprised to see tons of cars everywhere, the gym still packed, and everybody still doing the same routine.  it wasn’t like 911 when there was barely a soul on the streets.  nonetheless, news segments about the tragic event sprawled all over the tv screens.  there was a broadcasted moment of silence at one point but i was trying to catch my breath amidst the loud earset volume and the upbeat dance class music. everybody went on with the usual workouts. 

for now, it’s peanut butter jelly time!

    It’s sad how it always takes a tragedy to pull the nation together.  The more we learn of the killer, the more we wonder why nothing was done sooner, right?
