Above and Beyond
As i was going crazy taking pictures of perople all around me (check my last post), my eyes kind of fell on the framed certificate on Harish's Cube... the Macromedia Above and Beyond Award.
It invoked two emotions in me... one, the fact that we have all gone above and beyond the horizon called Macromedia and attained the Valhalla of our life. One journey is but a prelude to another... As Tennyson says (in Ulysses)
Come, my friends,
'Tis not too late to seek a newer world.
Push off, and sitting well in order smite
The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds
To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars, until I die.
It may be that the gulfs will wash us down:
It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles...
I tresure what was Macromedia and look beyond the horizon, to what is Adobe and to the exciting journey that is to come...
The other thought was of humility, one of respect for the work that he has done and the that "I'll be there someday"
Cheers Harish... for what you have achieved and I'll strive to reach there... Someday (I hope to read it as SOON)
