Picture this...

It's kind of funny how a day starts out seemingly bright and okay, and slowly turns into a dull mush (whatever that means) and then ends up being nice, warm and fuzzy all over again. Funny thing is whatever I just said has nothing to do with this particular post.

Anyway, this song - Snow Patrol's You Could be happy was ringing in my head the whole day through. Sometimes I enjoy having songs playing in my head, but sometimes I don't. This unfortunately belonged to the latter group. Despite the fact that I like the song, having it play in the head can be rather depressing. I don't know the reason, but will soon find out (I hope!) But I digress....

See, yesterday, I was reading through my "care for the environment" styled post, and the comments that followed, and in my rather depressed state, I ended up smiling as I was reading through the comments two likeminded souls had decided to share. Just because, the whole scene got pictured in my head.

Here we have 3 people... a 17 year old girl from Mexico, a 23 year old guy from South Africa, and me a 26 year old from Malaysia battling to keep the coasts where the turtles come to nest a safer place.

The day just got better :)


  1. Oh yes. I think I know exactly how u feel. Some terribly messy days end up for the better, often thru a few lines that I chance to read somewhere before bed.


  2. When things got really bad, they can only get better.

    Hope you have a great day throughout today :-)

    Yeah, tough, I know, being Monday & all that ...

  5. Hi Anusha,

    Thanks for the comment on my blog. Though there aren't any turtles round my way I did get a chance to see some at a turtle sanctuary in the Caymen Islands a few years ago. It was a great experience - and you don't have to go under water to see them!
