There's a wind outside every evening that to the romantics will bring in some desired hormonal surge, to the less-lethargic ones the desire for a brisk walk, and to people like my mother, the idea of chicken pox. Well, it's the proverbial case of each unto his own.




As I sit in the balcony I see a lonely cow chewing what looks like grass. (I don't know if it makes them high). A few stray dogs sitting idly (quite like us mortals; and the similarities don't end here), and a cricket which is too loud for it's tinyness. The moon has been an old faithful in the quiet night sky. It has tried to be quite glamorous in the past few days, but no matter what it tries, it is still as pretty. And as I sit I think of all the people I know, and how I am a bit of every one of them. I realise these aren't the times to hold grudges. (except the really big ones :P). But these are the times to let life savour each moment of enjoyment; be it sitting quietly doing nothing, or painstakingly taking classnotes in what looks like unknown scripts, or delivering series of obnoxious jokes. These are the times to also gracefully deal with the moments that may not be as good. But there's no point in holding petty feelings. They make us small, and undermine the inherent goodness in life. They eat us from within, narrowing our minds so much that we can hardly see beyond what goes on in it.
