The last day of 2005

December 30, 2005

… or the first day of 2006??

Well, optimism rules. So here’s a

Happy New Year!!

Look at the two images closely. The left one is snarling and the right one is calm. Now either squint your eyes or look at the images from a distance. See a switch?

Lif is like that. It often deceives you.

But then you squint at it and say,”Hey you, Life, you are givin’ me a raw deal here. And I ain’t gonna take that!! So screw you!”

I am glad I found the strength to say that when it was needed the most… Thanx to you ppl.

Living an anonymous life is not so easy, eh? You gotta hide an identity and maintain one at the same time. Your material identity tries to influence your virtual identity and vice-versa. The constant struggle between these two identities gets you (I wonder, what that means) down sometimes. But you choose to go on…

The world lies before you. you take one look and go,

“Uh, oh! I am not going there, It’s too fuckin’ huge!!”

And then you hear a voice, “Yeah, so?” And then –

Your feet start moving,
Your heart starts beating,
Your brain starts thinking,
Your eyes start seeing,
Your ears start listening.
You begin to feel and experience…
The wonderful journey called Life.

Here’s wishing all of you a very Happy New Year and prosperous life ahead.

One of the most beautiful photographs I have ever seen. To quote from the man himself:

“The only thing constant in life is change”

Then, how or what, in this constantly changing world, are we supposed to feel a connection with ? Change has always been here. But the pace of change has never been so much.

Sometimes I wish, change were something I could control. Then I would ensure that change does not change anything but change itself…

Makes a lot of sense, huh? May be you do have to be a rocket Scientist to figure me out… He he.

Oh shit. I’m losing it.

A new spot – BlogSpot!

A basic version of my new blog is up. Haven’t really thought of anything. The old blog will remian… And so will the stories (Yay!) May be I will move them here some day…

A few lines before I leave:

“Life goes on, as if a farce
After the rains, I see the stars,
I say to myself, it is so true,
The night will go, a morn is due…

I do not fear the night that falls,
Nor do scare me, the chilling calls,
I think of ghosts and laugh aloud,
Crowded singly yet alone in a crowd…”

Yours Truly,
Born Stinger.

Still life: when life comes to a stand-still he is there to capture it…
