Few of my favourite things!

Having considred the comments of all you beautiful people out there, I have decided to stop thinking. For a while. And take a break. I've decided to dream a bit. A bit more than I usally do. And talk about my dreams. And not just my worries. But yes, am sure i'll get back to my thinking self soon! And my blog, back to what it was started for. Thinking, expressing and yeah at times, cribbing.

But amidst all these, I somehow forgot about all the beautiful things around me. And all the beautiful things I dream about. I wonder why I only blog about my worries and not about my dreams? Or do I?. Coz I know why. It's simply because I blog, when I'm confused. When there seems to be a closed door in front of me. When I dunno where to turn. And blogging helps me decide.

The other day, I read a post on a friend's blog on how we tend to overlook some of the beautiful things in this world. It's so true. I mean, it was when I left a comment on the blog, that did I realise what he meant. And what I missed. I'm however not the kinds who'd forgo all the fun in my life for the serious stuff. I am in love with life. I dream. I have fun. And fun is the most important ingredient of my life.

So today, I'm gonna talk about a few of my favourite things. To start with, every time I watch an animation film with my neice, I wish I were a part of it. Like maughli or someone. Part of the jungle, where all the animals are friends. They sing, they dance. The beautiful lakes with rippling water. The dark green hills. And the trees laden with fruit. It's all so nice. No worries. No fear. How I wish I were in a world where everyone's happy for each other. Each one ready to help another. And it's all smiles around. Laughter everywhere. What a wonderful world! Sigh!! But I guess, that's why they're in cartoons. And not in real. But do you think, there'd be a world like that somewhere?

If not, a world full of babies. Babies who smile at you for no reason. Hold your fingers and don't let them go. Make sounds that you wish never changed. And talk to you, like they knew all what's going around. Pampers, Cerelac and feeding bottles accepted. :)

I've always dreamt of a loong drive through an empty road, in the rains. The windows of your car lowered slightly, and the rain drops kissing your nose gently. When the skies are all grey and white. And leaves of plants, bright and green. Winds blowing softly caressing your hair. And you drive towards nowhere, like in search of where the rains come from.

I wish I never reach a point, where I'll be left without my friends around. Life will be incomplete without them. Laughing with them. Crazking dumb jokes. Suddenly, life becomes so enjoyabale. So much more fun. You forget there's a world outside the coffee shop or the theatre.

How would it be, if the world were the way we wanted it to be? Would it be a nice, coz, happy place to be in? Or would we still be wishing for more? Well, we'd still be humans. And so, our thrist for more can never be quenched. I wouldn't be surprised if I dreamt of a different life, if I were in the world I dream of now.

But that's what keeps us going right? The hope for something better. The dreams that seem so real. And all the negatives that make us look forward to them. For, if they were no bad things, there would be nothing good either. Makes sense?

Are these just dreams! Rather than dreams, I felt that these are attitudes that shows a persons mantle of mind. In fact what a wonderful world! you or make me this world good, bad or ugly with our thoughts, with our acts, with our words, with our attitude. thats it. we can make our world better by alterning ourselves. This is the lesson that i have learned of late.

There are so many beautiful things in this world that charms my heart.
I would list few of them here that has always made my heart to incline..Probably in a chronological order as it came to my life and i started enjoying it..
make sense?

***First cry just out of my mothers womb...

***First release of mucony..

***Sucking my mothers milk ... feel of her breast on my face was sooo good.

***Lullabies that mom used to sing.

***water tub bath and later learning swimming in our nearest "Ambalakkulam"..

***playing at Ambala parambu ...

***plucking flowers.

***Cleaning our cow. making her shed clean..everyday..

***learning cycling in childhood..

***Biking..riding my bullet for many years..

***feel of touch of woman.... i love that and i am so sensual to a touch.

***smoking..enjoyed smoking a lot..still enjoy it. but i am a non smoker now for the last many years. i have stopped smoking just to show the world that i can stop smoking.. thats all. still enjoy it.ohh boy. smell of burning tobacco still makes me mad.. Used to sit alone and just smoke..thinking nothing....may be two cigarettes at a time...


***Driving long distances..

***Hugs..There is no one in this world who can hug me with love. All those who love me dont normally do that..shy ..you know. so i am a hug hungry person.

***Booze.. of late, i have become a fan of smirnoff vodka with sprite. and honey bee with appy fiz.. try them.. its really fun..

***travel? not really. i have travelled enough and seen the dark side of travelling a lot. many times slept on the floor in trains..

***sleep..want to die while in sleep.. that everyone will come to know when i dont wake up in the morning... nice thing right ??

I guess the dreams u mentioned are just starters, it looks like there are loads down the road.. nevertheless i think every tom dick and harry will have these kinda dreams and fantasies provided he is not stoic.. but one thing u mentioned is v thoughtful i shud say.. we all tend to forget the good things we have in this life and ponder over only the bad ones.. y is it that defeat always have hundred memories but success n good victories has amnesia?

Driving down an 'empty' highway, in India, not possible (pl dont even think about it) - too many Trucks, Volvos and 50 cc motocycles!!!
Raining? - Slippery road and reduced visibility.
Night? Headlight beams refracted and reflected a thousand times on your windscreen.
And a person like me, with a vision corrected by lens it's again a nightmare.
How unromantic? :-( Hah!!!

;-) I liked this one. As Pai said, it makes some sense.
