So Far Away

Today Alison and I indulged. We went to Victoria Music and got ourselves some CDs. Mine is the Carole King's 2-Disc Set with complete Tapestry. So on our way home, we listened to her crooning................. and a song came up that sort of sums up my life in the near future.

  So far away
Doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore
It would be so fine to see your face at my door
Doesn't help to know you're just time away

Long ago I reached for you and there you stood
Holding you again could only do me good
Oh, how I wish I could
But you're so far away

One more song about moving along the highway
Can't say much of anything that's new
If I could only work this life out my way
I'd rather spend it being close to you

But you're so far away
Doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore
It would be so fine to see your face at my door
Doesn't help to know you're so far away

Traveling around sure gets me down and lonely
Nothing else to do but close my mind
I sure hope the road don't come to own me
There's so many dreams I've yet to find

But you're so far away
Doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore
It would be so fine to see your face at my door
Doesn't help to know you're so far away

Whenever I tell anybody where I will be moving to, or even people whom I have already told, they will always say , "So Far! What are you going to do with your school?"  

"I will travel"

"Wah! Won't you find it tedious?"

"No lah! I don't do it everyday. Only certain days"

"Still"

Perhaps, but I think I am going to find the change refreshing. At least, I will be taking a different route home. Yesterday, it took us nearly an hour to get home ( The present home. Not the future one) That makes me wonder, what's the difference where I live. It'll still take me a long time to get home. Andrew mentioned that we will probably lead a very lonely nomadic life when we move because most of our friends are over this side of town. Then again, it may perhaps separate the friends from the acquaintances. There will be those whom will genuinely miss us and seek us out and if the friends lament that we live so far away and therefore find it hard to visit are perhaps, not really friends after all.

I will admit, it IS a little far. Even my usual contractor refused to renovate the house. Andrew had to take leave, go up to Klang with me to find one. I guess it'll almost be migrating, except there's no climate change. I will have to find new 'makan' place, market, my butcher. New hang-out place. New nearly everything. It's both exciting and scary.
