Wake me up when October ends



There is this song that's playing in my head all the time these days.

I've changed a lil bit here and there. As always.

There was this blog I once stumbled upon. I thought it was quite sad and the tone way too bitchy for me to take. It all of a sudden makes more sense to me now, this blog.

My whole apartment is crowded with bad vibes that have to jostle each other to find space.

My posts have become wails. There was this anonymous person who said he/she didn't like any of my posts. That makes sense!

Recount value. That's my selling point. I'm sure one of these days that seem to touch eternity, I'll sit to an amused audience and recount my experiences. The tone would be just right. There wouldn't be a banshee in my head then.

Something good did happen here today though. I woke up and walked into my balcony looking for the buttery yellow sun. Misty sprays greeted me. It rained where I live today. A small quick shower that was soaked in almost before it touched the dusty grey earth.

I ran in to pick up my glasses.

Things aren't so bad. It still rains.

I notice, I'm the first one to comment. Can't be at a better time, too.

Its raining out here now. Very heavily. The golf-course inside our campus is making a nice pool with lots of streams running into it from all sides. Wish I had my camera with me... Its a feast to the eyes; the sight of droplets falling from the leaves, water drops joining to make a stream, streams joining hands to make a pool on the green grass... Its life everywhere.

Too late. Water has been drained out, and the sun is out shining again. Another day, may be...

Borrow a cam? Nay! I want to own a Nikon D70 or Canon digital Rebel one day...

Saw the book 'Chasing the monsoon' at Higginbothoms. Have you read it?
