Matchstick men

Yesterday I watched the movie “Matchstick men” starring Nicolas Cage, of whom I’m a big fan. The movie was great and the ending was quite unexpected. I thought I had watched all Nicolas’ movies, but for some reason I missed this one. But it’s still nice, the movie gave me a pleasant surprise. A con artist gets conned — the plot is a bit similar to some episodes of  “Hustle”.

This noon I went to lunch in a restaurant in Kirkkonummi city center with many colleagues. The food was nice; and the salad was really great. It was probably the most delicious salad I’ve ever tried. The bread was good, too. Even I could tell the difference between the food in a proper restaurant and Amica food. We sat outside in the terrace in the sunshine. It was a bit cool, but it feels like summer is already here.

The sky went dark in the afternoon. I was planning to pick up some office gears after work. But since I was only wearing short shirts without a jacket, it’d be a good idea to go there tomorrow. Hopefully it’ll be good weather then. 🙂

Lie to me

I’ve seen only one episode of this TV series. I’m surprised that an average person lies 3 times in ten minutes. And it’s amazing how the Doc find people lying — through micro-expressions, which last less than 1/5 sec.

It might have been somehow exaggerated. Still you find it hard to let people trust you whenever you lie to them. And sooner or later people will find out the truth. It’s been a complicated world and we may lie in order to protect ourselves. Other times by lying we sacrifice others to get what we want. No one to blame because it’s human nature.

So by lying we might hurt someone, but I think it’s tolerable. On the one hand, one cannot force someone else to be absolutely honest with him. Everyone has a sense of self-defence. As a matter of fact, we do not gain mutual trust at the very beginning when we first meat each other. At least we’re somewhat reserved for ourselves’ sake. And we even  regularly lie to ourselves, so why expecting anyone to be critically honest? On the other hand, everyone gets his comeuppance. Truths or facts are deemed to appear. We’ll get it in time.

Speaking of honesty, it reminds me of Mark Twain’s words:” If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.” But we do remember a lot, don’t we?

The Bucket List

Today I saw the movie The Bucket List directed by Rob Reiner, in which Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman acted as two patients who had been diagnosed with cancer. Knowing their approximate day of dying, they wrote their “bucket list” – the wishes they wanted to realize before kicking the bucket but had not yet been carried out. The list reads:

1. Help a complete stranger for the good.

2. Laugh until I cry.

3. Witness something that is majestic.

4. Sky diving.

5. Kiss the most beautiful girl in the world.

6. Get a tattoo.

7. Drive a Shelby.


They went and gave it a shot. They realized most of the wishes on the list.

Then I begin to think, what if I were told to be dying in a couple of months? What will be my bucket list? That is a really tough question. It is said in the movie that 96 percent of people do not want to know their day of dying. But it is a realistic question that everyone may be faced with. So here goes my “bucket list”:

1. Find the most innocent kid in the world and look deep into his eyes.

2. Apologize with all my heart and soul to whom I have ever broken their hearts.

3. Spent a whole day alone, thinking about my whole life.

4. Talk with my family. Tell my childhood memories to my children.

5. Go to the forest and appreciate every creature with gratefulness.

6. Find a place extremely quiet and listen to the sound of silence.

People always talk about what are really important in life. But they seldom pursue them. Everyday we are concerning about how much money we are making, how large out house could be. However, we care little about love for another and our health.

May be it is high time that we settled out finding the essence of life.
