Have you ever...

Dreamt of a dream
Where you slept in your sleep

Ran a race
Where no one moved

And lost
From a winning position

Then found Success
In failure

And felt victorious
In defeat

Found fortune
And lost your soul

Then negotiated your way
Into losing your providence

Achieved fame
And lost your identity

Desired the Devil
When you finally found God

Felt desire
On a lonely night

And craved for solitude
In gorgeous companionship

If this is you…

Go on

Get up

Be human

Go Places

Start running

Hunt for life

Find Death

And when you eventually get there… look back… and smile… you have lived a full life….

It's quiet. Very quiet
I breathe in the silence
No one speaks
There's no one here
Just my thoughts
And me, bored
In my fishbowl existence

I speak up - Let's talk
They all join in
Turn up the volume please
Everyone has to be heard
My solitary fishbowl
Now my populated ocean
And my cacophonic claustrophobia

I have a new template for my blog.

I am currently bankrupt of new writing ideas and too lazy to build on ideas that I already have. But I had to do something with my blog this week - so I took the easy way out and got myself a new template.

And I am mighty kicked about it.

But at the same time, dear reader, I need your feedback. You are the reason I write. Your comments have encouraged me and kept me going despite my lazy self. Your feedback has helped me improve.

While I am pleased with the template, there is a part of me which fears that my obsession with reinvention might take away from your reading pleasure.

Help me out and tell me what you think.

Feed-back on the template - tell me if I should keep this one or go back to the earlier design. And if you feel like it, feel free to feed-back on anything that you wish to about this blog.

I realize that I wont be able to keep everyone happy all the time - but I promise to take majority opinion into account.

Green Glasses Sparkle

I had, in an earlier post, promised to write about blogs or blog posts that fascinate or inspire me. Here is one that does both...

The files of Agent Green Glass...

This Bandra (ahem) girl has more creativity in her little finger than most writers can claim to have in their entire body and soul...

Her writing is effortless, easy to read and appears to have that easy, spontaneous, laid back and effortless flow that most writers would sacrifice their fingers for...

And she is funny... again effortlessly funny...

Infectious is her latest blog post... a little love story with a difference... which I loved

How the west was won was the first post that I read on her blog and this is the post that inspired me to write fiction...
