Tonight, one of my high school friends posted this as his status on Facebook:
”A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd. ”
— James Crook”
I started typing a comment, mainly to accuse him for not replying my text the previous weekend. But I did that and a bit more. This was a very rare moment for me because I am neither the “preacher” nor the debater on Facebook. As much as I feel like baby Einstein now, for constructing that comment (which if I may add, got him to reply me about 2 minutes later), I am still in awe of how I went in randomly…for no reason. See my post below:
“LOL! Wise one but is that your excuse for not replying my text last weekend?
What if that man loses his audience in the process of “leading the orchestra?” And what is an awesome orchestra without the crowd? Somehow, he has to find a way to lead the orchestra and engage the crowd at the same time. If he ignores the presence of the crowd, he’ll be shocked to see an empty hall when he turns around expecting an ovation.
Organize your priorities & focus on them, but most of all, aim to strike a balance in everything that you do (easier said than done but still…)”.
I’m sure I could have gone on and on if I wanted to, but at that point, I had to “push pause”. Right now, I’m praying that nobody comments with opposing views because I’m not in the mood for a debate. Not tonight, not this week, not till my finals are over. For now, it’s about the books and I’m in the mood to get my molecular bio. lab. report out of the way.
On another note, my poetry class is almost over. I hope I don’t stop writing poems because it was an avenue for me to see the world and paint the images with words. I can assure you that this will not turn into an online whining blog or diary.
But I made an exception for this post.
Sweet Dreams 🙂
