Hmm...was feeling a little down this morning, perhaps cos i didn't have a good night's sleep, was deep in thought till pretty late...in the early afternoon, i watched a programme which introduced the new Marina Pier...which replaces Clifford Pier...The place looked pretty cool, serene, and yet i could feel the scent of the sea....hence i decided to make a trip there at about 3-ish?..
The place was beautiful...it was as i expected, serene, and filled with the scent of the sea..the presence of the sea permeated through all my senses, into my soul...standing on the roof, i could see miles away from where i was, to the point where the sky and the sea touched, becoming one in eternity..when the sea breeze blew, i could smell the sea, the freshly cut grass creeped into the overall scent, and made its presence felt...i could hear the rhythmic crashing of the waves against the rocky breakwaters...and at that precise moment, it started to drizzle...and i felt at one with nature...with all my senses evoked, except for the sense of taste..
I lingered around for close to 3 hours..before leaving the place...during the time, i also helped an old man take a video of himself as he requested, touring the roof garden..as i was filming him, a sad thought crossed my mind, as i wondered whether this would be the final time he visits the garden, and i pondered upon what could probably be on his mind as he strolled around the roof, gingerly touching the rails on the perimeter, oblivious to my presence with the video camera...
I miss the place...i guess i'll drop by tomorrow again...=)...
Life, What is it but a dream?
