Hopes. Start. Energy.

Das betäubende Glücksgefühl des Aufbruchs, des Neuen, des TUNs. Das Versprechen der Zukunft.
The dullening happiness of start, new, DOING. Future's promise.

I see a generation starting.
I fear their crash. How long is a "generation"? As a historian I used to calculate it as 25 years, but that is not adequate and there is a discussion here now.
After all we built sandcastles.

umm, does the soul good indeed. I clicked the pictures of that flower which you had put up. remember? I had said it is green and then it is greenish yellow or yellowish green etc.

I saw that tree in some fort in Pune.

Quin- yes, no?

Sanguine- I hope the son realises his good fortune. In my experience complete complete freebies don't work too well. it has to be an exchange for value to be understood.

b- what's OLPC? Sanguine, crabbie and heretic- see all the olde friends who've dropped in for a hellow.

mago- you are saying no roots, no foundation hence the house of cards will tumble?? Too many cliches in one line, i know. :). I think somewhere the dusty village stays in the gene print and keeps you on edge- there, but for the grace of God you go.

arunima! the yellow blooms seem to tumble all out of the tree, literally overburden the tree, don't they?khoob sundar.

I think edited for the web? The story I'd read in the papers was superb, perhaps the pics made it all the more real.
