A bluebottle

"I was watching a blue bottle yesterday. In an effort to escape the living room,

he kept flying against the window, hitting his head against the glass over and

over. Then he stopped launching himself at it like a missile and stuck to one

little windowpane, buzzing about like he was having a panic attack. It was

frustrating to watch, especially because if he'd just flown up a little bit higher

towards the top of the window, he'd have been free. But he kept doing the same

thing over and over again. I could imagine his frustration of being able to see

the trees, the flowers, the sky, yet not being able to get to them. I tried to help

him a few times, to guide him towards the open window, but he flew away from

me around the room. He'd eventually come back to the same window and I could

almost hear him : 'Well, this is the same way I came in...' "

Sometimes we're like the blue bottle - lost, misled, confused & simply pacing (or worse, sprinting XD haha) the wrong way. Someone else may see what we have been through & offer their help, but we (sometimes) simply rebuff their good intentions.

On the other hand, if we are the 'someone else', we should help the 'lost' ones

p/s: hey2 wana, ramai org dh rindu tanye khabar kau.. haha
