day 1 – monticello

A relatively uneventful first day. First time experiencing “unassigned seating” on my Southwest flight, en route to Salt Lake City (I didn’t get the chance to meet the rapping flight attendant, unfortunately). I took the Camry as my rental car – in hindsight, I should have asked for a Jeep or mini-4×4 (see my later posts).

Driving across the arid and remote southwest landscape is certainly a unique and refreshing experience – but can also be a bit frightening, especially after dark. You see miles and miles of nothing-ness, except occasionally spotting patches of yucca and juniper along the highway. You are driving highways and byways cutting through valleys and canyons, while enclosed by complete darkness and stillness. It’s not my first time driving across these southwestern states, but such “hollow” and secluded feelings can be unbearable after hours and hours of driving; and you realize you have wandered into areas with neither cellular signals, nor radio stations reception. But somehow, paradoxically, I found myself drawn to such feelings of solitude and be lost in such desolate landscapes.

My 300-mile drive to Monticello included a stop at Moab, the mountain-bikers’ haven which I fell in love with, when I first visited the area close to ten years ago. I tried to find that one Chinese restaurant which I magically discovered and went last time – but couldn’t find it at the end. Instead of trying another all-you-can-eat Chinese-and-American joint, I decided to visit a tiny Thai restaurant called Singha. The decor looks authentic enough, though food was rather average (and a bit over-priced, even taken into consideration this is a touristy town). I ordered a dish with basil, which I remember she loves.

Spent the night at Monticello, started reading a book recommended by a number of dear friends: “Life with God”, by Richard Foster. A deeply insightful resource that talks about spiritual transformation for Christians. The first chapters reminded me of Immanuel, God is with me.

I was accompanied by music most of the day, including 陳奕迅 <上五樓的快活>, Swing <武當>, 方大同 <Timeless 可啦思刻> and 梁靜茹 <靜茹&情歌 – 別再為他流淚>.

There are moments in life where all you need…is music.

Nothing Ever Happened 陳奕迅
作曲: 林暐哲   作詞: 林嘉欣

Hey, you once called me your baby
Say it for the last time
With all your strength and meaning it this time

Hey, you once promised me the world
But I never asked for it
But I never asked for it

Hey, you once praised me beautiful
Why I’d get get weaker
Why would I get weaker

Oh please, please don’t,
I am so scared, scared you’re too perfect for me
Or am I too naive for you

Either way it’s too late
Too late for regrets, I’m hurrrrrrt
Leave me out of love
Leave love out, leave me out

Hey, let’s just pretend
Nothing ever happened
Nothing ever happened

Hey, let’s just pretend
Nothing ever happened
Nothing nothing never ever happened

Day 1

03 Oct

今天只做一件事

清早上班 看見電腦彈出了
電郵展望附件提醒 (Outlook Reminder)

How are you feeling today?

當然電腦科技發展 仍未懂得會主動去安慰我們

這是我那天 預先設定的
為甚麼要這樣子做
其實 現在想來 也末啥意思

那時日子真的很難熬
可能是 為自己在旅程中 預先留下一些標記
至少感覺上 還有 自己會為自己打氣

是很傻的罷?
我想很少人會和 將來的自己留言

其實 我是不需要被提醒著的
今天是 第一百二十二天

感激 沿途有祢

發覺這世界永遠太少空間
因此花一天支配一切時間
發覺這世界永遠太嘥心機
因此花一天思索一切道理

消失太快 捉得到太少
因此花一天感覺一切是愛
茫茫人海 或有幾多漂泊與淹蓋
人人尋找愛 或有幾多爭鬥與比賽
越覺得剩低幾多未變的愛

慢慢地合作新詩
靜靜地同床午睡
再發現歲月換來幾次厭悶幾多親愛
有各樣劫災 和充滿意外
因此我要努力繼續能戀愛

慢慢地邁向聽朝
靜靜地懷念昨日
再決定今天只要相信愛
叫皺紋散開 喚青春歸來
因此我喜歡花一天感覺一切是愛

發覺這世界永遠太少深刻
因此花一天改變一切習慣
發覺這世界永遠太多蹺蹊
因此花一天擁有一切運氣

消失太快 捉得到太少
因此花一天感覺一切是愛
茫茫人海 或有幾多漂泊與淹蓋
人人尋找愛 或有幾多爭鬥與比賽
越覺得剩低幾多未變的愛

慢慢地合唱K歌
靜靜地同遊網上
再發現歲月換來幾次厭悶幾多親愛
有各樣劫災 和充滿意外
因此我要努力繼續能戀愛

慢慢地邁向聽朝
靜靜地懷念昨日
再決定今天只要相信愛
叫皺紋散開 喚青春歸來
因此我喜歡花一天感覺一切是愛

喜歡花一天跟你一切是愛
