Sound sleep needs no Master bedrooms

Sound sleep needs no Master bedrooms

I guess a sound peaceful sleepis something so rare now in THIS age. Almost everyone is so stressed. Mostly the culprit is work. Corporations today suck the life out of the emploers and i don't know....i visualize them as those big factories where humans walk in and come out as robots. I see people spending 14 16 hours normally at thier work places. Home is more like a station.

You know today a recent 12th pass kid said that he pity's my life. After I told him that I spend most of my time traveling. He pity's my life because I don't have a career, hence i don't have a life. And I told him. One cannot have wings and work at the same time. Its a choice. And almost always people choose work. I chose my wings. I pay some very heavy prices for my set. Being broke is one. Then having to be perceived as a loser by the working class, which includes friends and family.

But all of this still does not change my mind about my vagabond life. You see the truth is....these early 20s of life are the only years when you're old enough to be on your own and young enough to do what you want to do. This is the time when the body can take all the bumpy rides and one is free enough to see the world. People give up this time in working and accumulating experiences for their resumes. And before you know you've hit 40 and have kids hitting their teens. And its too late to have your own life.

Have you ever noticed? the sentence "i have a life" is always followed with "i have a job" ??? I don't believe having a job means having a life. It is a very rare combination which only lucky few have been blessed with. Mostly people who work hate their jobs and their bosses. So how is that having a life? People confuse having a "life" with earning a living. Life is that little time which you have apart from your work and home. Most of the people now I come across don't even have a passion in life. Hardly any hobbies for that matter. So what are you doing for yourself? Apart from hitting the happening places in the city every weekend?

It is so FUNNY now when I hear the answers when people are asked about their hobbies. The most widely used words are - Listening to music, making new friends, WATCHING TV, surfing the net (is a new one nowdays)...............................................................??????????? Since when are these daily routine small scraps of entertainment become hobbies?

Well just some food for thought. Think about it.

Cat life = Best life

Lion's life = Best life

Canon Powershot S3IS

Sometimes I wish I'd rather come back as a cat in my next life than a human. They have just such perfect lazy lives. They sleep through more than half of their life and rest is spent in idleness. They are not dependent and attention craving like dogs and neither are they timid or scared like rats. They can take care of themselves and would need practically no one.

A cat's life is a beautiful life...

p.s. - thats a big male lion though.

OF so divine a loss

OF so divine a loss

OF so divine a loss
We enter but the gain,
Indemnity for loneliness
That such a bliss has been.

I carry your heart

Canon Powershot S3IS

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

ee cummings

Dedicated to the one who has been a cushion to all my falls in the past 2 years. Thank you Shadab :)
