ABSTRACT


>
In this post I will not use any words which is obviously mushy or associated with anything mushy…use your imagination… your comprehension and your wits.

Yesterday

….they say … there was something to celebrate for….but I hardly say a word about it…. Well just some words describing it to greet some friends and loved ones… but not actually such word.

Two united arcs linked with a pointed V on the bottom or a triangle lacking with a base that was the shape I see all around….I wonder who invented this shape

… maybe it is because it is more likened to the shape of a vital organ in the core one’s cardiovascular system…which is always associated to a feeling that some gets to feel giddy… some say it’s like being a fool… or a wisdom they say that comes not from the head but within… pick your choice….

Every where I walked there were red … someone dressed as such…shops decorated as such with the aforementioned shape….almost all in the corner I see someone with something in bundle wrapped in a bouquet….and or a bottle which entraps a scarlet liquid in it or a clear white depends on the buds of their tongue… one that is an elixir as they say for the moment….

In the shops… I see this darked brown sweets in different molds packed in red…stuffed animals… mostly of bears stacked on shelves ready to be purchased …eventually given to someone thus will be owned by someone…..hersheys and hallmark stock owners being happy to make a handsome profit…even just for a day…..

And in the night…. Restaurants were crowded with diners…. Some had reservations weeks or even months or a year ahead to some posh ones… lacking of which…good luck… the snobbish guy in the reception won’t give you a chance …better go get some pizza or burger then go to some quite place…..

Well it was all in a day…. There might have been vivid shapes… illustrations… symbols … to pin point the significance of emotions…the hype of the moment… but when we try to size up what is really felt … or what has been felt …. It’s all mixed up…maybe the summation of all the joy…of the pain… of all the excitement… of all the contentment or still maybe the longing….

And when all of these are sauted in a pan it sizzles… like a gourmet dish….a fusion cuisine served to you…and when you taste it….there is a good flavor but you cannot explain whether the sweetness…the sourness… the crisp….the pinch of salt …or the cooking wine which makes up the flavor that defines the meat of the dish…. It is good …. Very good but it is vague.

Even when there is no precise words to describe it… even if there are no gestures done or symbols to visualize whatever it is… it can be found in the abstract….and it is a universal language….one that transcends all….

I hope you all had a good one the other day….
