WDYS # 109 -A Roundup post

Life is hectic for most of us these days
We crave peace and calm to quieten the frantic pace
We dream of scenic settings where we can relax
Disconnect from the constant connectivity and unplug
Find a hut deep in the mountains with no internet
And hide from the world for a few days to recharge

A little lick and it’s good to go

Stamps are what keep the postal system going. Post a letter, a check, or a card, and all you need are an envelope and a stamp.

When we were younger, I and my younger brother collected stamps. We had a special album for displaying those stamps. Those were the days when people wrote letters as a routine and not just for special occasions. We would immediately demand the stamp if it was one we didn’t have in our collection. We especially valued the overseas mail. Then on special occasions, we were allowed to purchase sets of stamps. I don’t remember exactly, but a packet of stamps could be purchased from stationery shops. They had all sorts of stamps.

I don’t remember what happened to all those albums when both of us outgrew our hobby. Perhaps they were donated or (gasp) thrown away.

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a colourful collection of used stamps from various envelopes and postages.

Sunday Poser # 56

Welcome back to another Sunday Poser

This week my question is;

Do you ever feel lonely? And if you do, how do you overcome the feeling?

There are certain times of the year when people get together to celebrate. And during those days, sometimes families or friends cannot be with us. At this time loneliness can strike. We feel sad and sort of let down.

I also feel lonely sometimes especially when my family or friends cannot be there to celebrate with me. Loneliness is a natural feeling. It reminds us of the fact that we enjoy the presence of others in our lives.

When I feel lonely, I talk to myself, remind myself of the numerous blessings I have in life and when the feeling is because of a certain person, I remember all the times they went out of their way for me. I find solace in my memories of good times I’ve seen and my feeling of loneliness disappear in the overwhelming gratitude I experience.

What about you? If you feel lonely how do you counter this feeling?

Do share your thoughts in the comments section or write your thoughts on your blog and share the link here. Thanks for visiting and reading.

Walk down the memory lane

Coming here again after 20 long years was some experience. The trees had grown taller, bulkier and fence wasn’t in a good state. But the shady lane was still the serene place it used to be in my younger days.

Standing here and reminiscing, I happened to look to the other end of the lane and couldn’t believe my eyes. It must be an image created by my brain I felt. I could have sworn that Jackie was waiting in the sunlit path with her horse as she used to do those long years ago.

Tentatively, I started walking towards her. Expecting the image to disappear when I got close……

Oh this is so tempting!

When I take inspiration from words like temptation, salsa and island, my mind automatically goes to food. There’s nothing that tempts me more than the food I love!

I try to be angelic 
But you tempt with with devil’s food cake
The swirls of chocolate dancing salsa on the glossy surface
Break my resolve to abstain in a few aromatic whiffs
It’s too hard to resist and forgo this pleasure
That looks like an oasis of bliss, an island of delight
Excuse me while I dig in, your allowed only to watch

Synchronized swimming!

“Look, mom, look” Jason shouted excitedly forcing his mom to abandon what she was doing in the house and come and look at whatever he was so keen for her to watch.

“Look mom, the Koi are swimming in synchronicity!”

“But how did this happen”, she was amazed.

I just put their food in the pond in a circular motion and they follow my hand. Note when I move my hand like this, they automatically swim in circles, with coordination”

I think you should post their video on YouTube!”
