A nice quotation from "The Art of the Long View"

"If you look at your life on the level of historical time, as a tiny but influential part of a century-long process, then at least you can begin to know your own address. You can begin to sense the greater pattern, and feel where you are within it, and your acts take on meaning."

Yorgun

Bugün yazı yazmak için çok yorgunum ama çok sevdiğim bir şarkıyı paylaşmayacak kadar da değil...

Whitesnake - Here i go again on my own

I dont know where Im going
But, I sure know where Ive been
Hanging on the promises
In songs of yesterday
An Ive made up my mind,
I aint wasting no more time
But, here I go again
Here I go again

Tho I keep searching for an answer,
I never seem to find what Im looking for
Oh lord, I pray
You give me strength to carry on,
cos I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

An here I go again on my own
Goin down the only road Ive ever known,
Like a hobo* I was born to walk alone
An Ive made up my mind
I aint wasting no more time

Im just another heart in need of rescue,
Waiting on loves sweet charity
An Im gonna hold on
For the rest of my days,
cos I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

An here I go again on my own
Goin down the only road Ive ever known,
Like a hobo* I was born to walk alone
An Ive made up my mind
I aint wasting no more time

But, here I go again,
Here I go again,
Here I go again,
Here I go...

An Ive made up my mind,
I aint wasting no more time

An here I go again on my own
Goin down the only road Ive ever known,
Like a hobo I was born to walk alone
cos I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

An here I go again on my own
Goin down the only road Ive ever known,
Like a hobo I was born to walk alone
An Ive made up my mind
I aint wasting no more time...

But, here I go again,
Here I go again,
Here I go again,
Here I go,
Here I go again...

* in the 1987 version this word is changed to drifter.
Davids management thought that hobo could be confused with homo! :)

Düzen mi? Hadi Canım Sen de...


Kim eşyalarının yerdeğiştirmesinden hoşlanır ki? Odamı dağınık dahi bıraksam, başkası tarafından düzene sokulmuşsa aradığımı sittin sene arasam bulamam. Şekilde görüldüğü gibi, bir sabah ofise gider masanıza oturur, bilgisayarınızı açar, eliniz kavramak için mouse'a gider ama oda nesi mouse kaybolmuştur. Sonradan farkedersiniz ki pek sevgili temizlik işlerinden sorumlu teyzeler mouse'unuzu nizama sokmuştur.
