Rantglass - because that's how things are.


Kermit was being nice.

Kermit was being nice.

The sky was a fiery reddish orange. The air reeked of an acrid, burnt smell as I treaded carefully on unsolid ground. My eyes gazed and lingered towards the horizon, where the somehow already-blackened ground met the angry colours of the scorching sun.

I was at a loss, not knowing what to do. The events that happened later was a blur – I was rushing here and there; still, I was clueless as to what should be the right thing to do in those times of turmoil.

One thing registered clearly in my head, though: that the world was coming to an end, and we certainly would not be able to live through it.

And then I woke up. The dream was awfully surreal, yet strangely twisted with a dose of realism. Then again, dreams are supposed to be like that.

Would you have known what to do, if you knew for sure that there would not be a tomorrow?

(at this point, there will be terrified shrieks, frantic screams, and shadows zipping past in the background)

Because as demonstrated in the dream, I did not know what should be done – and it was not a very comforting thought. After all, I am not an estranged scientist attempting suicide by labouring through storms and blizzards to get to his son, turning against the odds and eventually saving the world, bestowed with knighthood, and awarded a US20 million mansion located at the edge of the woods (or not, I did not watch the movie, anyway).

On air now: Misread, Kings of Convenience
