Sly does it. Tiptoe catspaws. Slide and creep.
But why? What for? How? Who? When! Where did it all begin?
“You don’t know, do you?” asks Carapace Clavicle Moundshroud climbing out of the pile of leaves under the Halloween Tree. “You don’t really know!”

umbrage is free.

take as much as you like.

every time i try to catch my confidence,

i find myself fishing in a seemingly empty pool.

or worse, i cast my line and sense a bite. but i end up just reeling in a rusty tin can of an old disappointment or the abandoned boot of nervous fear.

and right now, i simply can't afford to be despondent, gloomy or even angry.


Moon Talk

When Apollo Mission Astronaut Neil Armstrong first walked on the moon, he not only gave his famous "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind," statement but followed it up with several remarks to the other astronauts and Mission Control.

Just before he re-entered the lander, however, he made the enigmatic remark, "Good luck Mr. Gorsky."

Many people at NASA thought it was a remark concerning some rival Soviet Cosmonaut.

However, upon checking, there was no Gorsky in either the Russian or American space programs. Over the years, many people questioned Armstrong as to what the "Good luck Mr. Gorsky" statement meant, but Armstrong always just smiled.

On July 5, 1995 in Tampa, Florida, while answering questions following a speech, a reporter brought up the 26-year-old question to Armstrong. This time he finally responded. Mr. Gorsky had finally died and so Neil Armstrong felt he could answer the question.

Armstrong explained, "When I was a kid, I was playing baseball with a friend in the backyard. My friend hit a fly ball that landed in the front of his neighbor's bedroom windows. My neighbors were Mr. & Mrs. Gorsky. As I leaned down to pick up the ball, I heard Mrs. Gorsky shouting at Mr. Gorsky, "Oral sex! You want oral sex?! You'll get oral sex when the kid next door walks on the moon!"

he: why are so many people so callous and ignorant?

me: because its not easy to have a heart..

she: yeah. they limit the access to their deeper feelings.. and they put up emotional walls and psychological barriers. they hide behind their opinions, habits, busy timetables and convenient, well-rehearsed excuses and explanations.

me: to be sensitive is to be vulnerable. but its also to be free.

he: i didn't ask for a fucking explanation.. it was just a rhetorical question!

she: fm, leave him alone.. he's pms'ing.

Ishu - in her daddy's arms. She still misses him.

Happier times...

partners in crime?

yesterday evening, as i sat by the window, staring out into the dusk, i realized that darkness and light are not irreconcilable opposites. they are partners in crime. allies with an identical agenda.

they need each other. their relationship is entirely symbiotic. without darkness, light would have nothing to dispel or to highlight. without light, nobody would ever know what darkness really was.

and i'm still waiting for my partner in crime..

extremes are attractive.

i'm a creature of passion. i like intense experiences. there's something very dull about commonsense. even when i try to restrain myself, a part of me rebels. the further i err on the side of safety, the more i end up yearning to take a walk on the wild side.

maybe i'm being wiser in deliberately courting adventure. i'm letting steam out of a pressure cooker that might otherwise explode.

hey! anything's better than paying for fuckin' therapy.

that was then, this is now.

i've made that my new motto.

and every time i feel tempted to return to some old (and now redundant) way of being, i repeat it like a mantra.

my horoscope for today! (hahaha)

Some people were born to be wild. Others were born to run. You were born to cope. It doesn't matter what life throws at you; you take it all in your stride and, when your stride is not long enough, you borrow a pair of stilts. Yours is a rare talent. It may not be the stuff of which action movies are made, but if it were not for people like you, such films would not exist. Indeed nothing would exist - for nobody would make enough of a commitment. Your steadfastness, this week, is a blessing for many.

i was looking..

through a window at the glorious view.

and then my eyes opened.

now i'm standing outside and seeing the whole panorama without the restriction of the frame.

certain things never cease to amaze me.


Hindi Song Title: Justuju jiski thi
Hindi Movie/Album Name: UMRAO JAAN

Justuju jiski thi usko toh na paayaa hum ne
is bahaane se magar dekh li duniyaa hum nene

tujhko rusvaa na kiya, khud bhi pashemaan na huye
ishq ki rasm ko is tarah nibhaayaa hum ne

kab mili thi, kahan bichhadi thi, humey yaad nahi
zindagi tujhko toh bas khwaab mein dekhaa humne

aye adaa aur sunaaye bhi toh kya haal apnaa
umr ka lamba safar tai kiya tanhaa hum ne
