Babies Weddings Parties Drinks & Plans for Trips

That pretty much sums up things I have to report about. The fun times are rolling and though I wish I could be in India & Florida to enjoy some parts of it, I'm happy to be where I am at. Some things nagging the brain once in a while... not sure how to work those out yet. But otherwise the days are getting more gloriously sunnier and the nights more intoxicating. All in all a great start to Summer. Oh and loved the long conversation with old friends today morning. Now off to keep the head lighter. Happy Summer everyone!!!

Fighting Gravity

Was at a meeting earlier today. A bunch of people ranging from the engrossed to the disinterested. But all of them had one thing in common - drooping edges to their lips. Did you know age makes it harder for a smile to come by? Something to do with your zygomaticus muscle.

-Just something I noticed today.

Carpe Diem!

Been a long long time since I've read a book this fast! Loved it. A completely new style of story telling - through letters. Love my friend for sending it to me - the best surprise gift I've received in ages. Thank you! Finally rediscovered my love of reading and stopped brooding over my laptop.

For those of you who haven't read it yet, I highly recommend - "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society".

Thought for the Day

"When we treat man as he is, we make him worse than he is; when we treat him as if he already were what he potentially could be, we make him what he should be." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.

Was thinking about how true this quote is. And then I thought how closely it matches my own thoughts on the matter... and wondered - do I like this quote as it resonates with my own thoughts? Or cos there is universal truth in what it says??

Truth. Universal Truth. Was a time when there could only be one Truth. Now I tend to accept that there are perspectives. But Truth? I guess its all in the experiences people have. Either ways I happen to agree with this quote and believe it to be the truth.
