Rantglass - because that's how things are.

Throb, throb.

We need something every now and then to jolt us back to our senses. And we usually take things for granted – so much so, that we fail to give them due appreciation.

Yes, admit it – we are not thankful enough with what we have.

And it always happens when something goes missing. That big bunch of keys to your car, house, safe, diary, jewel box, treasure chest. A horseshoe that serves as your good luck charm. Or that leopard-print tie given by the ex that you wear anyway, although it clashes with just about everything in the wardrobe.

In most cases, it may be just that – missing – and waiting to be found.

At other times, however, it can elude your grasp, forever lost to you.

Would you rather lose an arm, or a leg?

Be oblivious to the breathtaking sights that lie before you, or be unaware of the world’s beautiful sounds?

Have a splitting migraine when stress gets to you, or be plugged into machines that help you stay alive, fortnightly?

Not take in the fragrance of the grass after a summer’s rain, or taste the sweet tang of a juicy orange?

To be able to feel, or to forego pain anyway?

So cherish what you have, while you can – remember, not many people are as fortunate as you.

I was not quite practising what I preached, obviously. The doctor’s diagnosis: ear wax.

Oh well.
