Please dont worry! I am not preaching you chemistry or throwing polemics suggesting how science education sucks. Infact, I find chemistry the most dull of all physical sciences. 

I used to listen to this band called Simian and I had totally forgotten about it for a long time. Now suddenly, one song of this band has surfaced in my consciousness, and I was looking all over my computer to find their album. Unfortunately, it seems that I deleted it accidentally during summer. 

Chemistry is what we are cover

Update: I learnt from a friend that  this band are not together anymore.

Echoes

Echoes

Pink Floyd's Meddle

Pink Floyd's Meddle

Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves
In labyrinths of coral caves
The echo of a distant time
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine.

And no-one called us to the land
And no-one knows the wheres or whys
But something stirs and something tries
And starts to climb towards the light

Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand the best I can

And no-one calls us to move on
And no-one forces down our eyes
And no-one speaks and no-one tries
And no-one flies around the sun

Cloudless everyday you fall upon my waking eyes
inviting and inciting me to rise
And through the window in the wall
Come streaming in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning

And no-one sings me lullabies
And no-one makes me close my eyes
And so I throw the windows wide
And call to you across the sky

–Pink Floyd

As I woke up this Sunday morning (afternoon really), it suddenly struck me that an uneventful February had just passed.

I have a sense that March will be slightly more exciting as I am traveling a bit. I hope to see friends I have not seen in a while and learn few things of value and depth throughout this month. As I look outside the window, I am reminded of Dickens:“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold:when it is summer in the light and winter in the shade.”

If you are interested in nomenclature like I am, March is named after Martius, ancient roman god of war.  Apparently, in ancient Rome, this was the time to start thinking about warfares. Also, as I just found out with a little Google search, today marks the birth of one of my favorite composer, Frederick Chopin (1810-1849).

Contemplative Nostalgia

I was listening to some jazz in the radio and quietly going about my business. I heard this sound which was familiar as well as fresh at the same time. Turns out its a band called Bad Plus. It is reminiscing of my misspent childhood when I used to literally memorize  Nirvana songs (which I have forgotten since) and my later reincarnation when I started reaching out to  jazz and classical.
