Nothing lasts forever

Well, for most people who have met me, one thing they would probably recognise from me is the small, black buddha i wear round my neck. My aunt & uncle returned from travelling thru Australasia in 1996 and when they returned stayed with me a short while in Glasgow, just before I left for Australia. Anyway, during that time they gave me this buddha, it was a cheap, 20p necklace but i put it on and there it stayed until today…

I was turning over in bed and i felt buddha pressing against the back of my neck, a favourite haunt of his… i went to pull him round when *snap* the cord snapped and no buddha round neck do i now have :(

It was a few hours later i started to wonder if the breakage signified something, you know, the end of an era. I winder if i perhaps put up with far more shit than most people in life do and perhaps thats why I’m not getting what i want, far too busy looking out for everyone else that i don’t consider myself worth spending time on. For too long I’ve always done the running after people to maintain friendships, perhaps its time to learn that if its always one sided, perhaps its not worth keeping…

I think 2007 will be an interesting year, not least because today i shaved for the first time in 10 years and didn’t see buddha staring back at me… it was strange…
