To imagine a heaven and then not to dream of it, but to demand it.

"...Its a rare gift, you know, to feel reverence for your own life and to want the best, the greatest, the highest possible, here, now. To imagine a heaven and then not to dream of it, but to demand it."

Hmmm... I was asking myself... is it a dream job you want or a dream company?? And of course its a dream job, a job where you do as your mind pleases, a job where you can THINK about how to get that old rusted motor running, on your own, a job where you can get in and show your team, THIS is how you nail it in the head!! A job where I can drive back home feeling taller and stronger!! :) I feel this only when I swim or when I soil my clothes in the garden, or when I read Rand. At least for now.

What's a dream company anyway?? Unless you have one of your own!! Only then is it YOUR dream, only yours and no one else's to share. And talking of a job, yes, it could get the best of you for a while, but if you're really looking for more answers, they're all around you. Just a matter of time we begin to see that bright spot down the hallway... the door which leads to LIGHT... where you're standing tall, dark against the light with your arms up, head thrown back, feet apart and when the light hits your face, you look better than ever... you smile. A silent yet fulfilling smile, something that would say more than a thousand words or a beautiful poem... And one day, someday, I WILL come home to that smile... :)

See you when I see you... :D

P.S.I find I'm so excited, I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it's the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey at the end of which he knows not WHERE he would be but only know WHAT he would be. I hope I can swim across to the other end. I hope to see the land of my dreams, and sit along its shores. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope.

Updates... Revival :)

Well, I've just been too lazy to sign into blogger!! Yeah, over 3 months I guess. I've had lots to write but somehow didn't make the effort to do it.

Anyway, if you're really expecting current tales of my land, let me warn you, I have nothing to say about it!! Whatever comes, I will remain and so the people of my land, who cares about borders/boundaries and limits these days??

So, coming back to me... my first month off I've been busy with House M.D and must say, Hugh Laurie really is some talent man!! In fact as I write this, I feel I must dedicate this post to House!! Why not?? I've been busy watching all the Seasons repeatedly, again and again... and talking of being influenced... I've been walking around with a cane, limping, for a few days, and finally had to give it away to someone who ACTUALLY needed it!!... I use Hanson-MmmBop as the ring tone for my friends, and ABBA's Dancing Queen for my brother (those of you who know will know)... you decide what that means. And yeah, I also read that Laurie said reading Wodehouse novels saved his life!! Oh man!! Now that's really something for reading novels what he is today!! :O

And... I've had my share of Wodehouse too... apart from that, I've had lots of revelations to myself... The most significant of all being the attitude of Dentists. Particularly female Dentists... more particularly pretty female dentists!! ;) When you're looking at her, you're so lost... the way she smiles, the way she engages you in random talk... smoooooth... and then KRRRRAKKKOWWW!! The next thing you know when you come to your senses is you're bleeding from your gums, she's giving you the perfect-smile with her perfect-teeth and she holds out my extracted tooth and flaunts it in front of you and says, "see... it wasn't that bad, was it??" Oh really!! And then she says, "don't spit anything out for about a day". I must have swallowed a pint of my own blood and Goddess!! it made me sick in the stomach!! Poor me, I didn't realize the smile and kindness were used over the anesthetic to perform this barbarous act!! C'mon!! Pliers??!! Wodehouse rightly says... "the prospect of visiting a dentist this evening makes you forget of the total ruin that's in store for you for the year to come!!" He's SO right!!

Seriously!! What's in it they need to smile about given what they do with it??!!

So, that is that. And oh, another significant move... I've started fishing again!! :D Big time. I'm going all out each day, and feeling totally on top of the world. But happens so that my to-be employer would like me to come and join sometime soon!! So the fishing stops then maybe (unless I can find a pond at work too ;)) Yeah, you win something, you lose something. Square.
So until I come back with something of greater significance (which I certainly will!! This was just like a starter ;) ), keep on dancing and as always...

see you when I see you folks... :D
