Not Only Numb


I never really understood this song, but I like it.  It sounds sad and defeated but hopeful at the same time, which is how I feel at the moment about everything – my art, our dwindling bank account, the mountain of laundry that I’m trying so hard to ignore, the failed CPP/NPA peace talks (yes, it bothers me), Philippine politics, my daughter’s therapy, my  joblessness.  

Having so much time to think is not so good after all.

These are waterlilies at the Singapore ArtScience Museum.  I like how it turned out, but as expected, my favorite critic didn’t.  He said it looks muddy.  As the song goes, I’m not only back, I’m not only numb (whatever that means).

  1. I really like the way it turned out as well, I especially admire your choice of colour. The whole thing gives off a calm, relaxed and wondering mood, I think.
    I also totally relate to the whole “too much time to think (and worry)” thing. I hope you’ll quickly regain enough energy to deal with it and distract yourself by being super productive and effective 🙂
