Sand, sea and sky
God's magical vellicate
Refreshes tired souls.

Alone in the deep
blue sea, or have wings to fly
Just some pure mirage!

I Wish for A Hammock!

Neither I was aware nor  did I notice  while I was busily engaged  with many exciting matters of importance of late that I was neglecting my health until one day I fainted in a seminar. The culprit??? You guessed it right -Stress and over-fatigue!

I wonder why being busy with good things keeps me stressed :(  But then I could not avoid the many tests and a day's stay in the clinic that my doctor felt necessary. Luckily the tests did not reveal anything amiss except that I had to gain strength and stamina for the arduous tasks that I have undertaken. My son ensures that I pop up the vitamin pills  without fail and do the exercise at home if the weather does not permit a long walk. I am also careful on what I eat.

I  also realized it is really a must to relax not just a bit, but fully! While I was in bed trying to recap what happened to me, I suddenly felt the need to relax, yes, relax in a real sense. And this fortnight's break from all work except the unavoidable like office and some social commitments has rejuvenated me. I am back at the blog in fine fettle. But not promising anything like I can stay for good na... :D

Now came this hammock I had been visualizing for long and wished resting on it during the break... :))


I wish for a hammock
suspended between two giant trees
within the deep of the forest

I wish to lie languorously in it
with an absorbing novel in hand
and lose myself leisurely in  reading  

 I wish  to listen to the weird sounds of nature
of the chirping birds and noisy cicadas
and the rustle of leaves as insects crawl

I wish to  savour the smell of  mountain breeze
and let my eyes feast once in a while
on  the lush landscape around in all its green!

I wish to rest on a hammock
suspended between two coconut trees
found along a beautiful beach

I wish to let it sway as I sing
or listen to my favorite country songs
till I am lulled into gentle sleep

I wish to smell the cool ocean breeze
and feel the searing hot sun
as it lazily rises up from the horizon

I wish to thank the Almighty
for His munificence in nature's bounty
that keeps me ever happy!

Am on short break... :(

As I am not keeping well and also preoccupied with heavy work in office, I intend to take a short break for a fortnight. I will be missing your blogs. But kindly bear with me....

Curt and Cunning

Friendship by electricshadow1518

"A handful of friends are always precious and adequate. But to cultivate a lasting friendship, an honest to goodness rapport is essential. Cunning and curt remarks even when said in jest have no place as they invariably hurt the feelings. Display of abrasive character that weakens the bond and later leads to a loss of friendship is best avoided. Like any other relationships, friendship is  fragile and is to be carefully nurtured."
