Sometimes I think I’d be quite happy in a languid silence cocoon, stirring now and then, content to let the world merrily spin by - and I gently remind myself that I’m almost there.

I read you regularly! I always enjoy your writings and have enjoyed your photography as well. I apologize if you thought I had left.

To step outside and let the world spin by. No, we are spinning within the circle, no escape, just a slower part of it, a silent "corner" ... where the wind forgets some leaves, dry and whispering.

Reminds me of the song' watching the wheels go round'.:) Well,it does conjure up a pic of sheer bliss...but, how can u say u're 'almost there'?Retirement days are still far away...:)

Amit- one can step abck anytime- one's needs are frugal. No caviar and champagne. :)Hamarey gaon mein sasta hain sab.

mago- step back, watch the leaves change color. :) WHY is one part of the cirlce, whirling around?

PT: :) Ok. But I've always never seen any comment.

pq, norbu- not bad, is it?

manu- or you welcome the intrusion?

AmitL said...

hahaha..that way,even I can 'step back'anytime..lekin dil hai ki maanta nahin.The thought of sitting idle is just mind-numbing.

austere said...

good, I'd be happy to look by and clap. In slow motion. :)

I written a six about this back a few months ago (when I was still submitting) but it had a crass ending. You worry me when I try to read between the lines of you blog- "I'm almost there" makes me wonder. Feels sad.

austere said...

Why aren't you subbing anymore?
Not sad. Peaceful? Content? Like that, perhaps.

I can't write at the moment, soon soon, something is in the way and I am not sure what it is.. Probably me.?
