Pot Pourri of Thoughts

I saw you in the distance. I could tell from the silhouette in the fading light that it was you. And I paused in my steps. I no longer understand who is hiding and who is seeking ? Is there no real end to this game ? Or has it ended but I am still playing ?

Steel grey waters are just as enticing as blue waters. They have a haunting quality which the blue lacks.

I wish we could be like before again, K. "Its one one missed step and slip before you know it, and there seems no way to be redeemed !" (Sarah McLaughlin -- Fallen) I no longer know whom I am mad at... you or me. But every now and then I miss having you around, mon cher ami !

Another day of colourful silks. A day of celebration. My dear cousin got engaged yesterday. Happy emotions flow mixed with pangs of having had to miss it.

So people I know keep stumbling here and finding me. So I wonder, is it possible that you have found me too ? And you read my thoughts hidden to me ? That you wonder sitting in your world what I must wonder and you find yourself coming back here ? Ah, now thats a romantic possibility, isn't it ??

There are writers and then there are geniuses. Maugham falls in the latter. Started reading "Moon and the sixpence" and it had me hooked from the word go.

The last stretch of the run is the true test of mental strength. The last steps of a good climb as well. Ran 3.2 miles on Friday and hiked 8.5 odd steep miles saturday morning. Nursing a grazed knee and a weak ankle its every bit worth spending that energy. Everybit pushing telling myself "I can do this". And I did. Comfortably too !

Carrie found herself asking "Single and Fabulous !!!" or "Single and Fabulous???". As I shut my ears to everyone asking me when I am going to get married, from friends to family to my tax accountant reminding me that "Ah, so nothing has changed, you are still single , you don't own a home, and you didnt make any money on stocks this year, so filing is a no brainer" .. I still affirm the former.. "Single and Fabulous !!!! " Carrie had to go through a whole episode to realise that ... Duuuuhhh !!!

One of my favourite past-times is taking Sac's case. And I love him because he lets me do that. Kept laughing all the while he spoke seriously the other day. "Since when did you start drinking at work ?" he asked all irritated and at a loss for how to react. And it sent me into peals of laughter again.

  • Pot pourri of thoughts, which one do I comment on? Ok, I think that's a lot of running and climbing and that makes it awesome. I should really really make it a point to read Maugham. I like crystal clear water too .. that which lets you see through it.

  • Hmm...so much has been said and so less understood. So I'd comment on what I understood. I love Maugham and I love Moon and Sixpence. Its a book worth its weight in gold. I really really hope you fall in love with it :)

  • No, you dont have to hope that hard.. barely 50 pages into it and I am already in love with it. Maugham is God. He swept me off with Of human Bondage and when i read the first page of this one I knew I was going to love it.
