My perfect world.

A poem I found a while back describes my perfect world so aptly.

Bright shining lights
smiling faces
laughter
music

peace and love
timeless space
deep midnight conversation
meaningless chat

my friends close by
to need and be needed
to help and be helped
to listen

you're welcome to visit
to stay

pull up a chair
and together
we can see it through

Random tag!

A pretty woman tagged me with this one. I'm supposed to reveal (hold your breath)-- eight random facts about myself (you may breathe now!)

But no--pretty woman called me a 'writers delight'. Now who am I to deny? (Sigh..This is going to be hard because I try to make my posts interesting--and I cannot imagine why anyone, except myself, would find eight random facts about me interesting!)

Leaving my kids home with a baby-sitter , I ventured forth bravely at 8:30 am, to the other end of the city. The office of my prospective employer looked plush and comfortable.

Too much of a good time

Sometimes, you discover that there indeed exists such a thing, as having too much of a good time! It’s a bit like eating chocolates and ice cream every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I am talking about my holiday.


It was great, terrific, wonderful. But at the end of it, I did long for my own bed, my home and my time to myself.
It was nice to take a break—but equally terrific to be back.

The sea was lovely. Beckoning. Alluring. Mesmerising.

Could have stared at it for many more days without getting bored. But I wanted to come back.
