You will always be beautiful in my eyes …

"You will always be beautiful in my eyes." Joshua Kadison in Painted Desert Serenade says these marvellous lines. This statement has an echo of eternity in it. And this is a directive from God. More than a directive, it's a direct inference of truth. Imagine a 'just married' couple saying these lines to each other. Isn't that romantic in the beginning especially?

In terms of computing, it's like the main function in 'C' language. It encompasses all functions that have been written within the program. The main function remains the same, despite changes in the functions (referring to body not arguments) and however the function may be written, the main function loves all the functions equally.

Another cliché now. "And I, I'm glad I didn't know. The way it all would end, The way it all would go." This is Garth Brooks in The Dance. This truism is about future. Once it happens, the poet realizes that it's not worth it, to have conceived, a myopic future and face the consequences. Our lives are better left in God's hands.

Again in project parlance we talk of alternatives for a problem. The solution that we may be using may not be right for the future. Remove emotional bias and work on facts. Choose a solution that has the highest merit and then leave the rest to God. Work to the best of your ability. We will never be able to predict the unknown future, hence no point worrying about it.
