2008…

Dreams.
Europe. Turkey. Italy. Switzerland. France. UK. David. Art. Sistine chapel. Paintings. Sculptures. Travel. Disneyland. Eiffel Tower. And new cultures.
I miss my adventure so much, there’s not a day I wish I was back roaming the pebbled streets in Europe, especially Italy.

Love.
Prince Charming. Ogre. Wall-e. Cupcake. Chubby. Bonn-e.
Diamond ring. My diamond ring.
Found the one I was looking for… finally! And it has been worth the wait.

Family.
Away. Missing. Memories. Surprises. And lots of love. Good food. Pampering. Relaxation.
Going home is always special, mama, papa, tommy leanne & lovell (if he’s back from hyd)

It goes like this

I am sleepy
No matter how much I sleep
I just never seem to be sleeping enough
After full nights sleep
I am still sleepy
I doze away in the train
I doze in the rick to office
The next few hours pass in a blur
Have coffee
And more coffee
But still am sleepy
What to do
I think I just need a shot or something
I just need something to take me off this sleep

Books

All books are written to be read. But there are some books that you read and just cannot forget about them. Here are 3 of my favourite.

I started reading Shantaram about 2 weeks back, then the terror attacks in Mumbai took place. I was at part of the Afghan war & considering the current scenario, could read no more of the book for a few days. I went back to the book and found solace, as Gregory David Roberts so well put is Mumbai is all about the unbreakable spirit.
I am not from Mumbai, but I am an Indian, and during this time, as I observed life get back to normal, I just could help but admire the spirit of the people. The book helped me under the city I live in even better.

Maximum City by Suketu Mehta is also another book which describes life in the city. A city that I have come to cherish. Read it and you will know what the city brings to you.

Then just a few days back I began reading A Long Way Gone, by Ismael Beah. Now this book is so gripping that I just can’t imagine what life for this boy then must have been. The terror faced as a child? Unimaginable!
We know something like this happens, yet we can do nothing to protect the children. Today as this young man narrates his experiences, I wonder what can I do?

My friends ask me why do I read such books?
Then again why not?!

Surreal

If I begin to count, then I have just 5 months & 16 days remaining.
OMG
Is this really happening to me?
And in this time there’s so much to do.
Shopping.
More shopping = stress
Tick off the things to do on my to-do list
Fittings
Decisions to make
White or yellow
A single stem or a bunch of flowers
More shopping = even more stress
Cutting down lists
Prioritizing
WTF
I can’t do this any longer
Think will do what I do best
Chill and not take any tension
But how can I not
It’s the one day I have waited for all my life
And I want it to be perfect
And want it to be just like how
I imagined it to be

Pop!
My bubble burst
FINE
I am not dreaming
It is coming true after all
