It is a rainy day, but I don’t need an umbrella. The water is falling in gentle flakes, slowly. I can’t make up my mind whether this sort of weather depresses me, or makes me happy, since it does both. It depresses me, and yet puts me in a reflective mood, and brings back memories, and thoughts of the future, still unborn. I came back to the lab after a short walk and the songs that were playing in random mode were just perfect. “Anticipation” by Ali Akbar Khan from the album “Journey”, followed by HÃ©lÃ¨ne SÃ©gara singing L’amour est un soleil from the album “Humaine”. It’s in French, but sounds great, nevertheless. My music player is hooked up to last.fm, so you can follow the music I play at my profile page at last.fm if you like. A million thanks to Satya for all the music.
The university is full of students cramming for the finals. Mine are over. I stopped working on a paper and sent it to my professor. I can’t say I finished work on the paper – they never quite get “done”, if you know what I mean. So at the moment, I find myself wanting to drive a really long distance, listening to some good music, which, I think, is just what I will do.
