It could have been me

I couldn't shake this feeling off. Someone I had crossed path with, had died from drowning and as much I would like to mourn, I didn't know how to, or how much I should because I hardly know him. Yet we've met, said hi, smiled, talked a little about his work on a yacht, for this media junket over the weekends in Phuket.

It's okay [to mourn] because it's a human soul." my girlfriend tells me.

And also, what really dug deep inside was that he was 35 years young, and too young to die. I am 32 and that made me think, it could have been me. What if it was me? Had I started out doing everything I had wanted to do? Have I fulfilled all of my dreams and wishes?

And the soul lingers in between two realms because it doesn't want to leave, nor it believes it is dead.

So I told myself I needed an outlet to put these thoughts down into words, for it may stay with me inside. That's how I began my Monday morning.

It could have been me.

Well said Charles Bukowski

If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery — isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is.

Keanu Reeves makes his directorial debut

And I am fairly excited.

He's roped in his stunt guy Tiger Chen, who was part of 'The Matrix' team, to be his leading man, while Keanu will be flexing his skills as both the villain and the director in 'Man of Tai Chi'. From what I've seen with the use of Bot & Dolly, the close-ups are both exciting and seamless, almost like what CGI has to offer.

Keanu was quoted: “There’s 18 fights. We’ve timed it out. It’s about 40 minutes of fighting. I want to make a good, solid kung fu movie. Good story, good plot—but let’s get some good kung fu going!”
