the next version of "version 2/why blog?".. previously austereseeker.rediffblogs.com
You're so good at putting words together...but it's sad you haven't updated the other blog in a while although I guess you're very busy (don't tell me about it...)
i love watching the sky. last night the sky was so pretty here that i kept looking at it out of the window, when i should have been sleeping :)
it's the same four letter word as love. what should tie us together instead pulls us apart.
Ahh..so true-nicely put,the sky talk part.:)----egoh is a four letter word,come to think of it..should be converted to 'let go',I feel.
amit- so well said. let go, indeed.quin- perfect. loved seeing the different interpretations here.ricer :) we don't get stars now, all a muddy red because of the monsoons and the city lights.bookclover- dunno what I'd put up there? :) good to see you again.
I tell good stories, yes, because people hang on to hear the end regardless of how busy they are, but you have a much more impressive gift I thing. To slow us down, to take time to ponder things. You visual imagery to your words that is unqiuely your own and I truly appreaciate it!As I might be so cliche; Coming here is a breath of fresh air. :)Take Care Austy dear,Nimh
Wow! See why editors are employed.ha,ha,ha-Nimh
A thread maybe, a tyrannic master, a weak bond, just one streak that plays in(to) the foreground and stays there - for a while? An indestructable and unchangable entity - I doubt: The me I am now and the "ego" today is different from me ego 10 years ago. It changes, but I do not know whether it just adapts or if there is basical and structural change. But I see constant things like abilities or interests, Curiosity for example.
Austere:Beautifully said as always! It speaks of a sentiment that is prophetic and important. On my site you mention your new car. What style is it, and if you have a link to a photographic image of it (not necessarily yours, but one of the same model) I would love to know the link so I can picture you in the vehicle.PipeTobaccohttp://frumpyprofessor.blogspot.com
PT, I don't use a car. I walk, or take an autoricksha.http://images.travelpod.com/users/lizzyloohoo/liz_india2007.1183172580.002.jpgAnd that's not me in the photo!mago- the tyrannical etc, also arrogant or rude is what I call "proudy", but what abt the thread that holds you when you're broken, stops you from doing things that are bad,reminds you of a line not to cross, because that's not you ? Ever changing, yes, but the core changes? Curiosity and your kindness basic to what you are as well. :)nimh- those be precious words. honored. thank you.
Curiosity and kindness are fine, but bad things and crossing the line is also a part - that thread is flexible. Crossing the line ... at one time in the life, surely, but it is a constant move, the line is also different from the one ten years ago. I know what I am cappable of, what I can do - and can continue with. The line is defined in a new way by each (reflected) experience. Maybe the core is pearl of glass ... ein Glasperlenspiel.
Austere:Ah, now I see what you were refering to. When I was in India, the people I traveled with called those vehicles "mototaxis". I like your term "autoriksha" better. Those were wonderful vehicles! I liked them so much that probably 90% of the time when I took a ride to different parts of the city, I chose them. Only going to and coming from the airport (when my bulky luggage would have been difficult on that type of vehicle) did I take a traditional taxi. What I find so nice about the autotaxi (autoriksha) is that they remind me of the mopeds we have here in the US, but that they have a back seat and cover.

Arunima- send you some? deluge, here.PT- these guys are terrific drivers, the world's best,and I admit I have no guts to face our traffic. Plus for me given the sugar issue, walking is a must. :)
