Searching for someone

I remember hearing a song by someone in a movie with Charlize Theron and Keanu Reeves as the protagonists. Charlize is a free-spirited girl who is terminally-ill while Keanu is an ambitious lawyer who is captivated by Charlize's ways. The most memorable thing about the movie, though, was the song. I tried to ferret some information about the song yesterday, and its unknown singer.

  1. Searched for Charlize Theron via Wikipedia. Browsed through her filmography and zeroed in on Sweet November (2001), which rung a bell. I didn't remember the name of the movie and hoped this was the one.
  2. Clicked on Sweet November. The plot confirmed my doubt! This was indeed the movie I was looking for.
  3. Searched for Sweet November via Yahoo! Music. Managed to find the original motion picture soundtrack.
  4. Clicked on the link. Found the list of tracks. There were 13. Now which one was I looking for?
  5. Visited Amazon and searched for Sweet November. Gotcha! The list of tracks, however, gave no information about the singers.
  6. Listened to the 30 second samples.
  7. Only Time. That's the song! Still, no information about the singer. A customer review read "My main reason for getting this album? Enya."
  8. So could Enya be the elusive singer? Returned to the familiar terrains of Yahoo! Music and searched for Enya.
  9. Read her biography. Certainly seemed to match what I had in mind. Yeah, some more probing and it was finally confirmed that Enya was the one.
  10. Watched some of her videos. Really liked what I saw. I just love her new age style.
  11. Finally, searched Wikipedia for Enya.
  12. Job done, I was a satisfied person!

Really? I didn't know that.
There was another movie with Richard Gere & Winona Ryder with a similar storyline.

This is what Bertrand Russell said about religion...

Religion is based, I think, primarily and mainly upon fear. It is partly the terror of the unknown and partly, as I have said, the wish to feel that you have a kind of elder brother who will stand by you in all your troubles and disputes. ... A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men.

The year that was

I'm wearing a rather striking shirt, one that makes me feel like a clown fooling around in a graveyard. Roving eyes latch on to me and make me too conscious of myself. Checkered in red, grey, black and maroon, I've excused myself into donning it and looking silly for two reasons. It's Friday and…more importantly, the last working day of the year. Tailored half-a-year back, I never had the courage to wear it, not until today. It's that time of the year when it's time to reflect on the events that transpired. Last year ended on the worst possible note. Dad had expired and I was numb with shock. The repercussions rippled halfway thought this year. Things were so abysmal initially that I had lost the will to live. Acrid in everything I did, I was immensely angered by time phlegmatically flowing through its cadence. It was as if Dad meant nothing to anybody. What right did people have to live the way they always had when Dad was no more? Why was much of the world still
