Fragile

Just this last Monday in Singapore, on the MRT train from Changi to the city i had a MOMENT. A sudden surge of self reflection of my inner interpretation of life.

As the doors opened at one of the stops, the lady in front of who was seating in the Priority Seats, got up as she beckoned to someone behind me to take her seat. A young pregnant mother smiled gently and took her place. She had a simple face, a little shy, very quiet and dressed in what would probably be her day job as a promoter in a pharmacy or retail outlet.

You could sense an aura of fragility around this gentle woman but her quiet dignity gave her a sense of nobleness.

Then as the train silently sped up to the next stop i can't keep thinking how noble it is to carry an unborn child with such dignity. make that carry a child period. A mother to be is a fragile, precious vessel to untold futures. That they carry these dreams with unwavering stolidity and passion and again i say dignity is something we miss in this time of unwavering pursuits of eternal wealth and unfulfilled dreams. That child is special of course, but a mother completes this universe and provides that kryptonite chain between the present and the many futures in time.

Fuck, I hope I'm not menopausing early.....

The Fon is worried about your latest post. Mayhaps its time to change the batteries on your biological clock. On the plus side, The Fon is pleased with your new feminine side, but somehow after reading this, he now craves for milk.

Chindiana said...

The FON is a disturbed kotek.....

There's a kryptonite chain in this being a mother deal?? Where the hell is mine?????

The Fon said...

Disturbed as The Fon may be, he loves baby chindee with all his heart, or what's little that's left of it.

BellaBanana said...

AHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHH(sorry couldn't help the kotek part...haven't heard that in awhile)

from fragility, to pregnancy and the wonders of it, to kryptonite proportions, to milk fetish, to disturbed kotek..

what has the world come to..?

Chindiana said...

J! now which part you holding your tongue la? we've covered a lot of territory there!

Where there is the FON, closely there follows the Bedhouin and then War and Pestilence...

You HAD a Kryptonite chain la Beddy, its just that you're such a scary badass it snapped upon the delivery of your bouncing budle of joy.

OMG, FON commenting TWICE in one post. I now have to go mandi bunga!

Bellas, welcome to my world. Its a scary disturbed place...

ah lim said...

I suggest The FON make his devil muffins as offerings to The Chindee God so that he need no worry too much.

Chindiana said...

the FON cares not for humans la Ah Lim. And not safe to eat his muffins - you either grow a third testicle or sit in coners humming the theme song from Barney..
