Enjoying the golden rays of the sun on a winter afternoon

February 28, 2003
Something different happened today. We were out for lunch - I suddenly met my junior colleague in ABB. It was such a surprise...from Calcutta to Tokyo and after 5 years! A face can bring back so much of the times you have left behind - BKDG and Satyajit and JB ....the power projects, the electrical diagrams - ha ha "they flash upon that inward eye".
I went out for a drink with R-san and company for the first time today. It was a small place but again, I was doing something for the first time and I liked it. It may be a far cry from being accepted in the group - but I will make myself believe this is a first step. Tomorrow is India-Pak match and I am keeping my fingers crossed. We should be having fun in any case since we will be having some 9 people coming over to our place to watch the match.

I escaped from office yesterday - for a few hours(2 hrs) during lunchtime. The weather was great - deep blue sky, lovely golden sunshine and the trees looked green. It's still winter out here - temperature is still below 10deg.C, so the mild breeze had a slight chill. It was this combination of sun and chill that made it so lovely. I was glad to get out - it was a few hours of peaceful time spent. After that short trip to the world outside I found I was totally at peace with myself. Is it not very difficult to know what you exactly want? It felt great to do something I have never done before - escape from office :)

I had a very mixed day. I was utterly unhappy in the morning but by evening I had regained my spirits. I must take a vacation to get rid of these mood swings. One year of no vacation is a long time - specially when you are not in India. Suds told me the same today - you are so unpredictable nowadays! It is surprising the way my feelings and thinking fluctuate at times! Now I am watching the India England match and having some fun time!

I really like the lyrics of this song....

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder,
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,
May you never take one single breath for granted,
GOD forbid love ever leave you empty handed,
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin' might mean takin' chances but they're worth takin',
Lovin' might be a mistake but it's worth makin',
Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter,
When you come close to sellin' out reconsider,
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.

Thanks Swami. You dont know how much this piece on my desktop means to me.

I got inspired at last by all the blogs I have been reading and signed up.
