Semalam, baru sahaja kembali dari Marudi. Off-road. Petang tadi, rumahku dilantak (kata orang Sarawak) oleh Nurisa, Rina, anak buah Rina, Fakhrul, dan Afiq. Terima kasih sudi menziarah walaupun kuih di rumahku tak seberapa. Kemudian, kami melantak pula rumah Khusyairi, rumah Ustazah Rodhiah, rumah Sharifah, dan rumah Nash.

Gambar-gambar raya, semua masih tersimpan dalam kamera, termasuklah gambar-gambar semasa di Marudi. Hurm, kepada yang menanti di Facebook, jangan sampai berjanggut sudah. hehe.

Maaf tak dapat nak wish each and everyone of you my dearest friends untuk hari raya ini. Yang pasti, kalian berada di ingatan.

Okies. Sehingga berjumpa. Anyway, klik pada poster di atas untuk kawan-kawanku di seantero UK. Peluang meramaikan kawan, meluaskan pemandangan, menambahkan pengalaman. Jom!

Last week, I wrote something on my Facebook status. I wrote a quote from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, a dialogue between Dumbledore and Snape. It’s the part when Snape was complaining about Harry, how a troublesome kid he was. But Dumbledore said he didn’t hear such complaints from other teachers at Hogwarts.

So, Dumbledore said, “You see what you expect to see.

Then, few people commented on my status. One of them was Ajah and she posted a video from youtube entitled ‘The Conscience’.

God asked you to do something?

“Yes, yes, lots of things”

You mean God said, ‘I need you Jeanne’?

“No, but he sent me signs”

Signs? What signs?

“The wind. The wind!”

Wind

“And the clouds. Ringing”

Ringing cloud

“The dance. The dance”

The dance?

“The sword. The sword lying in the field. That was a sign”

No, that was a sword in a field

“No, no! That was a sign!”

No, that was a sword in a field

“It can’t just get there by itself. It can’t! A sword just doesn’t ‘t get there by itself. It can’t just get there by itself!”

True. Every event has an infinite number of causes, so why pick one rather than any other? There are many ways a sword might find itself in a field

((Horses running, a sword was dropped))

Seems a perfectly valid explanation but how about this one?”

((Two men fighting, one of the sword was thrown away))

But then again, there are other possibilities

((A man holding a sword was chased by a group of people then threw his sword into the bush))

Or even faster

((A man holding a sword was hit by an arrow from an archer then the sword fell off to the ground))

And that’s without counting the inexplicable

((A man walking and suddenly he threw away his sword))

Yet from an infinite number of possibilities, you had to pick this one

((A sword descended from the heaven onto the field))

You didn’t see what was, Jeanne. You saw what you wanted to see
