continuing from my post yesterday,
everyone should read this book.
It has made me think and I definately know that it will stay with me for a while…and a book I want to own and maybe reread slowly and painstakingly is surely something amazing.
Rarely do I come across a book that makes a cold day even colder because it is cold in the book. Altogether yummy
Sometimes life seems to speed by with a speed that I just cannot grasp. Then come along Saturdays and such days when it is too cold to go out and one can curl up uninterrupted with a book and a blanket.
But then what do you do when a book makes you restless, makes you see with even more precise clarity, everything you lack and what the character lacks and sometimes has more of things you wish you had
Even if the book deals with sexual persuasions other than your own. Aren’t we all the same? One man sees the domesticity of the situation and his lover sees only the sex. And you wonder, isn’t this what I see too, while he sees differently?
And then the cozy bed merely seems empty with the words from the book, bringing back the feeling the bed is empty into the bright day, a feeling that only comes out at night when the blanket is snug around you and yet you cannot sleep and the only thing that helps is the thought of a warm body next to you in bed.
Then what do you do? Mope or listen to music or pace restlessly or call people who are happier enjoying their lives of which you are but a small part, dismissed as soon as the call is.
With time and blogging comes a peacefulness and a realization that at times one just needs human company and something is better than nothing. A realization that brings its own wry smile along with it. So is that the reason that we fall into relationships that fulfill neither party and make everyone emptier as they go along?
Or is it the reason behind our desire to make relationships appear stronger and better than they are, for the comfort they bring?
Or maybe it is the reason why we hope and hope and hope of relationships becoming something else, of growing into something you dream of tentatively, because shattered dreams hurt even more than reality at times. So wait with the breath baited and eyes focused, lips ready to smile for that knight in his white Ferrari. Instead you’d find that the monk gave up his Ferrari and you realize that you wanted the Ferrari about as much as the man.
just quick post.. innundate this place with hits..
it made me laugh on a wednesday night in the middle of an assignment!
those who know my sad stroy..my tuesdays and thursdays dont exactly rock!
coz they have rocks that prevent rocking…
and do tell me how u veni vedi cuccuri..
these days i have been doing a lot of flyer and other design work for the Hariprasad concert and dangit I am good at this stuff!
So the question comes up, why psychology and why not design ?
advertising was the first choice, then was English and then was nothing…
then psychology came into the picture and oblitrated every other contender.
why…well it is a people area and i love people and how their mind works and what they do and why..also because people are important to me….and what is advertising or designing but application of that knowledge of people
and then I had to get into industrial organizational behvaior which i described to my mom this morning as the study of how to hang the carrot infront the donkey to get it to work. which distance, what brand carrot, in front or behind, whether a carrot or just the dream of a carrot..ah well..too much studying I think, loss of perspective or the unadorned truth?
