That Cinnamon

'How are you?' and the good short answer is always 'fine'.

Even if you've just lost one third of a generation in your family, soul about to burst from profanity and the public toilet have more posts than u're blog. always reply 'fine'.

Totally unrelated and randomly connected to whatever I wrote above is a memory of first watching R.E.M's Immitation of life vid. The song caught my attention and the video was to me complicated. The depth of imagination to produce something like that was astounding.

Well anyway, after more than a decade, I paid a bit more attention to the lyric and found something to blog about. Hope it inspires.

//====================================
That sugar cane that tasted good.
That freezing rain, that's what you could.
C'mon, c'mon on no one can see you cry.

This sugarcane
This lemonade
This hurricane, I'm not afraid.
C'mon, c'mon no one can see you cry.

This lightning storm
This tidal wave
This avalanche, I'm not afraid.
C'mon, c'mon no one can see me cry.

That sugar cane that tasted good.
That's who you are, that's what you could.
C'mon, c'mon on no one can see you cry.

To strive to be what you can be. To not be afraid of how people see it. To just being aware of where you are at and heading. Everybody is heading to their own destination and their own struggle. Focus on your own struggle, your own storm... hold on, make a stand, keep on walking, don't forget your directions and just keep on walking forward.
