coo (seriously..don't ask!)

Title: Refer to the last two posts. My weird wave is apparently still in high tide!


Locked out of the house after an hour's drive (or ride rather) is something you never want happening to you, trust me...unless you've got a terrace where you can lie on your back and gaze at all the non existent stars, while waiting for the house key to miraculously fall from the heavens.

Let me backtrack a bit..

I've never exactly been a lover of nature..but I have to admit that there are times when I just cant help stop and marvel at some of nature's bounty..like 'Flame of the Forest' trees or the shade of green of caterpillars! (Did I just say 'bounty'?! What in the name of God is wrong with me??!!)

So anyway...since I had nothing else to do..I resorted to lying on the floor of my terrace, oblivious to the scandalized stares of some of the conservative older crowd in my apartment who were trying to finish their evening walk. Thankfully..it was dark..so they had no clue who I was.

Ever since I was child..I've had one special star that I referred to as 'my star' as I'm sure most insane little children do. Mine was the middle star in that constellation that has 3 stars in a line. I have no clue what the the constellation is called though (I was never really interested in astronomy). Ever since then every time I looked at the sky I would look for my star and when I found it I'd be content. Unfortunately, that evening..there wasn't a single star to be found. Instead, stupid huge rain clouds presided over the sky in all their daunting glory. Given my love for rain clouds..not..I had no choice but to look at the moon, which I guess feeling sorry for me, decided to show itself all bright and beautiful. So I lay there staring at it in awe for close to thirty minutes...when I realized that you just have to take a few minutes..or more like 30 in my case..to actually admire and appreciate something that you just take for granted! Yea..I know, late realization...but better late than never right?!

At least this way..I'll be admiring something else rather than potato chips!

Day dreaming is the best pastime ever. :D
Staring at stars is best done with company though, *winks* then your apartment oldies will REALLY get tension!

i guess your star is a part of a bigger group. like, i think its the same star that i always look for. we call it orion th hunter! its got three prominent ones, and then a tail and something that resembles a dogs head in front! anyways.

actually, two wierd people, mokm and I, would always go out and see if our stars (we looked for venus and mars, plus orion and then, a star which looked like a cross, thats all) were still there intact. that was in our old house in Kerala. Now even if its a clear sky, its a miracle if u can actually see anything withall th city light!

staring at the sky is one of the most done thing in the universe, just cause of the fact that the sky is awesomely big and it makes u think about how tiny u really are... my days on the terraces happen when the electrcity department is having a wild time screwing my day by cutting of the power supply or when i am trying to get some signal on my mobile by trying some ancient martial art poses on the roof... ah yes... give me a cloudless sky any day :)
