Reminiscence Prelude… Again…

Posted in Nostalgia on 26 Jun 2011 by Najwa Aiman

Not sure whether I’ve written this before but the title is a sure fact that I have used it in the university’s publication almost twenty years ago. And it was about emotional trepidation and the predicament of flourishing love and affection. Well… It was more about heartbreaks and the such.

I can’t remember much about the details of what I wrote therein but I am pretty sure that I did not mention that heartbreaks are — like any other things that aren’t celestial nor divine — part of life cycle. And being a cycle, such situation or emotional predicament returns after it has gone, and will continue to return and leave as long a we still live. Despite having said to and keeping on reminding ourselves that we would never ever repeat any errors in life that would lead to such penitential and dismal circumstances, and that we would take all the necessary preventative measures to not enable any possibilities of such to happen again, we are yet just another human being. As I said, we are but any other things that aren’t divine. We can only plan.

And I strongly believe that every event is a prelude to what will become our life reminiscence. These things will always happen and we know it. They are here with and within us whether we like it or not. They are here for reasons that we can only speculate. The smarter side of our personality would go further by learning some lessons from the results of our speculations.

But nothing… nothing can neither stop nor prevent from anything to happen, though it has happened before. And it is such that makes our life nothing but merely a living being waiting for its time to be questioned about what we have learned in a lifetime…

Zaman sebelum emel dulu orang guna apa yang dipanggil “organizer”. Ala-ala diari tapi ada lebih banyak folder dan template di dalamnya untuk address, notes, appointments, bla bla bla… Sekarang ni pun orang masih guna, kan? Tapi kebanyakannya dah start beralih ke smartphone, kan?

Masa memula kerja dulu, sorang member ofis ni memang gunakan organizer. Tapi organizer dia ada macam-macam kertas dan dokumen sampingan yang terselit-selit kat merata-rata halaman sampai terkeluar. Petang tu kita orang lepak kat lobi pejabat sebelum balik rumah. Dia letak organizer dia yang banyak kertas dan dokumen terselit-selit tu. Maka salah sorang bos besar pun tuding ke arah organizer dia sambil komen; “An unorganized organizer.”

UNorganized” atau DISorganized” ek? Sejak saat tu sebenarnya dan sampai hari ni aku masih tertanya-tanya…
