Some bumps in life can make you smile

Really sorry--I have had to remove this post as it will soon appear in a book. Making it available online would have been very unfair to my publisher who has placed so much trust in me. I hope you enjoy the other posts as much as you enjoyed this one. A heartfelt thanks for your support and understanding.Thanks for continuing to read what I write.

Everything is all Sir Garnet :-)

This picture was clicked by me very recently at the market square in the place where I live. Do I even have to say what ' Sir Garnet Wolseley ' is? (to know who he is click on his name) Any guesses? :-)

All I want from you

Photo by Ajay Chauhan When I reach a plateau All I want you to do is To point out the mountains that are still there to climb (Obscured by the mist) When I retreat into a shell All I want you to do is Coax me out gently but firmly (Reminding me of the dreams still left to chase) When I do not respond to you All I want you to do is Keep persisting doggedly. (And not give up on me) When I ask you to leave me alone All I want you to do is Not believe me. (It is just a camouflaged cry for help) When I talk to you All I want you to do Is look into my eyes. (To see the adulation and unwavering faith) Perhaps the mist is not really in the Hills after all. It is in our minds And I need to sever the layers.

If you cannot remember, then you probably need a good, extra large healthy dose of fun. I went on a rope swing recently (and I am 37 :) ) It was really nice, good fun.(Yes, that is me in the video you see above) This was at a place called Bewilderwood where we spent a whole day recently. The tagline said 'a curious tree house adventure' and it was indeed a curious one. 'Deep in the woods is a land of Boggles, twiggles and Thorny crocklebogs' said the flier. There were more details and pictures and it sounded good. It was. (To get a good idea of what it is all about as well as see a really nice video about it, click on the coloured word.) Often we get bogged down by the word AGE. It frightens many
