I was in Sri Lanka on my way to Ella from Kandy on their picturesque train journey [supposedly one of the most scenic routes in SL. Its good too, feels like the long meandering routes of Munnar, Nilgiris rolled into one]. I happened to meet a French guy on the train and we ended up speaking for a while and speak, we did... we became quite friendly, travelled together a bit and also got to share our music - thats how I learnt about John Butler Trio.
The SL trip by itself was on a whim as I wanted to do a quickie considering the constraint of limited time and booking at the last minute so I can get to use my discount coupons. Interesting how the Supreme Power links up things in ways unimaginable... but in hindsight, it seems as it was just meant to be that way.
As the protagonist says in 127 hours "This rock has been waiting for me my entire life..."
Verbatim: "[talking into his camera]
Aron Ralston: You know, I've been thinking, everything is...just comes together. It's me. I chose this. I chose all of this. This rock...this rock has been waiting for me my entire life. It's entire life. Ever since it was a bit of meteorite a million, billion years ago. There, in space. It's been waiting, to come here. Right...right here. I've been moving towards it my whole life. The minute I was born, every breath I've taken, every action has been leading me to this crack on the out surface." Link here
