I have just watched Tangled, a 2010 animated musical film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios based on the German fairy tale “Rapunzel” by the Brothers Grimm. The movie was so-so. I liked the songs though, especially the healing incantation:

Flower, Gleam and Glow,
Let your power shine,
Make the clock reverse,
Bring back what once was mine.
Heal what has been hurt,
Change the fates design,
Save what has been lost,
Bring back what once was mine.
What once was mine.

Can I use my hair to heal Daddy? If only that’s possible…hmmm. 🙂

Last night I talked to Mom for about two to three hours via Skype video chat. She told me the whole sequential story of what happened to Daddy since last week and their succeeding days in the hospital.

Two bags of blood have been infused because his blood vessels broke. Dad has lost weight fast. But we’re glad he’s fine now, probably will be released out of the hospital next week. Mom has prepared his bed at home and hired a private nurse to help with his recovery. She will be settling demands and personal injury claims with the company’s lawyer on Wednesday.

At the end of the day, our life is divided into halves. The first half is about making stories, and the other half is spent telling those stories. I guess Dad is still not too old after all, or he’s somewhere in between—making stories through experiences and telling about his matches on the field.

For all problems and miseries we’ve been through, we’ve always get to untangle the yarn and roll it into separate strings. Amazing, isn’t it? And it’s also funny how we think we’ve crossed the finish line only to realize we’re right back at the start.
