I wish


I WISH...
For a device that puts all my thoughts into words..
I was the tree outside my house, firm and strong against all adversities
I was the river photographed by my friend in the picture above, beautifully calm, safe in the cocoons’ of green to transport people in these valloms to their destination...giving but never expecting anything in return...
I had a job that gives me two weeks off for every month I work...
I never had to think of money (I am forced to now)
My kids were well behaved...and not the naughty cranky character they sometimes change into (read most times)
I could relive my REC days... I want to learn and read a lot more than I did then...I want to hang on to the friends of those times...
I could read one book everyday
I could go to one beautiful location every month
I could drive into the horizon in my Honda, with music playing...
And come back in time for N's school bus
I could sleep with them (my girls) on each of my arms
I could come up with brilliant ideas at work...ideas that translate into pots of money that can be distributed equally among all my colleagues...
I could blog about interesting topics on a daily basis
I had Swaram's positivity, Nancy's popularity, Vimmu's clever tongue, Smitha's range, Umm’s talent to decipher strong issues...
On the other hand, NO, I want to be me...with my few blogs...and I would rather read their's than wish mine to be similar to theirs
I want to keep wishing...but am sure I will lose the few readers I have...
So I stop writing but keep wishing...

P.S: The picture is courtsey a journalist friend, Bonnie James, who clicks for passion.

i wish you would give yourself a lot more credit and respect and confidence than you do now :)
keep wishing, it will come true. but that should also be a warning, so be careful about what you wish for.

Beautifully expressed, Sindhu!

"On the other hand, NO, I want to be me" thats the best way to go!

BTW, I love that header of yours and the profound message by Maya Angelou :)

vimmuuu said...

No, you cant do this !!! I just started following you !!! Nahheeeeeeeee !!!!

Seriously, if you need a break, take that. Dont use all these big words of ending up things !!!

I just love your header! It is so breath-taking!

You write so well! You certainly are too modest :)

I stopped at that pic, I so love to ride that boat, but nobody lets me too without the boatsman :):)

About the book thing, totally... I would love to finish a book a day, may be two, so that at least that pile of books in the world will be lesser by a few :)

It's wonderful to be u or me and admire others for their merits:)

I wish I could dictate my comments instead of typing them...blog posts too.

I agree with UmmOn, and so I like the last line, "On the other hand, NO, I want to be me" :)

The header is absolutely beautiful!!! Stunning in fact - Did you take this picture???

sindhu said...

Rani: Now I will wait for ur blogs...and thank u for the compliments
Nilu and Deeps:Thank u
Vimmu:Kaysee javungee...atleast will be here to read ur 'great words' and 'scripts'
Umm, Ashes, IMH and Smitha:And I am working on my confidence levels..wonder why it dips low...

IMH and Ashes:The pic is also from Bonnie...I asked him for two of his best from what he had put in facebook.

Swaram said...

Such a pretty header Sindhu :)

Smita said...

And I wish that all your wishes come true :)

Reflections said...

Sindhu u make me shake my head in incredulity[umm...is there a word like tht]....like the other I too echo..u r just too modest abt ur acheivements...

....tho 2 weeks off every month and driving into the horizon & still be back in time for daughters bus is over-reaching urself really;-D

And oh tho we cd have a debate on tht, thanks for the mention;-D

sindhu said...

Ah...ur here finally Nancy...
I am practicing the art of being confident!
