Dreaming of 2008

Had written about what I wanted to do in 2007 here. A year has passed, with some dreams fulfilled, and others still in the pipeline...Here's a list of what I want to do in 2008..

1. Bake a cake - Have always wanted to do this...Hubby dear, are you listening? Get me an oven, plssss.....And while you are at it, do get me the recipe books, the cake mix et al...May be you can even do the baking yourselves :P

2. Go to Leh and Switzerland - This year, no matter what, I'll definitely do this.

3. Learn a new language - either French or Japanese. They say it prevents Alzheimers , so why not ....

4. Spread Cheer - I really don't know how to go about doing this, but I want to be able to bring a smile to people's lives....Not the 'I am at peace with myself' kind of smile, but the heady feeling of happiness you feel when you are on top of the mountain with the wind against your face !

Of Castles and Ruins

Somewhere castles get built....and elsewhere they crumble into ruins...Old friends...who used to know a tear in your heart from miles across...then their life turns messy...and they build fortresses....and forget to give you a map...you knock on the doors...they toss you a key....but the frost inside is unbearable...you turn back...and walk away...only to discover a beautiful virtual world where your friend is King...you feel proud...and then realise...he never told you about the conquest...you wonder whether to gate crash and say "great job"...or to watch from a distance...like watching the night sky...and the stars there....
Then, there is guilt....of whether you were on the wrong side - in that ever so thin line between reaching across and interfering....
Friend, I wish I could turn back time...

Isn't it a wonder ....

... that the same set of people sometimes tell you that "Repeating a lie a thousand times does not make it a truth" and at other times preach to you the power of self-suggestion :P

New Year Wishes

May you have :

The confidence to dream ,
The freedom to make your dreams into reality ...
The ability to think profound,
The power to reject any philosophy in which 'care and concern' is not the epicentre ,
The wisdom to know that no story is complete unless all characters speak...
The knowledge to express your thoughts lucidly...
The courage to act like visionaries in everyday life

Happy New Year !

Wishing everyone happiness, health, love, success and all the good things in life !*

(*Whichever way all these are defined in your mind!)
