23 on my 23rd on the 23rd of September. Remember, remember.

So here it is, another year has come and gone, bringing with it memories both regrettable and joyful. I'm supposed to be another year older, another year wiser and of course, another year closer to my death. Somehow some people I did not expect to remember my birthday remembered and wished me and yet some people I expected to remember did not say anything. I'm slowly beginning to see that it is but part and parcel of life, people come and go and only a select few actually stick around even after everything's been said and done. That being said, the people who do stick around are definitely ones to be treasured simply due to their rarity.

I'm going on a roadtrip later today to Australia's outback and wilderness. It's called the Grampians and it gives a kind of Lord Of The Rings feel from what I can see in the pictures lining the website. I'm going on the trip hoping in some way that I might connect with God this year, somehow to feel His presence in his many wondrous creations. Of course, there's great company in this journey with my OCF Cell Group so many thanks to them!

Till the next time, there's a song which aptly describes the moment.

Jimmy Eat World - 23

I felt for sure last night
That once we said goodbye
No one else will know these lonely dreams
No one else will know that part of me


I'm still driving away
And I'm sorry every day
I wont always love these selfish things
I won't always live not stopping.

It was my turn to decide
I knew this was our time
No one else will have me like you do
No one else will have me, only you.

You'll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for?
I'm here I'm now I'm ready
Holding on tight
Don't give away the end
The one thing that stays mine.

Amazing still it seems
I'll be 23.
I won't always love what I'll never have
I won't always live in my regrets.


You'll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for?
I'm here I'm now I'm ready
Holding on tight
Don't give away the end
The one thing that stays mine.

You'll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for?
I'm here I'm now I'm ready
Holding on tight
Don't give away the end
The one thing that stays mine.

"Don't give away the end, the one thing that stays mine."
