February.Stories.Life

The winters are fading slowly. The days are becoming brighter. The days look much brighter now. The sepia-ness is out.. It is funny how 99% of my posts start with weather updates.
I am quite predictable. I am pretty sure you already know that by now.
I get very nostalgic in the month of February. There are so many memories, so many great stories, so many life changing stories, so many lessons learnt.. I just wonder how all these events/things/memories are packed together in the same month.. What are the odds?

I am sure you have heard all those stories..  I keep repeating things, you know..
I am sure you also remember that 2 years ago I met with an accident. Oh, yeah I pretty much bragged about it on this space. It turned out it wasn't so minor. It was horrible to look at.  I still remember it was so bad that I was out with a friend for dinner and he was quite embarrassed to be sitting on the same table. I looked like a perfect case of domestic violence and he got all the stares.
The power in my right eye (distance) has increased dramatically.
It all started in my Yoga class where I was trying to do some eye exercises and felt a sharp pain. It was my wake up call. I decided to get up and get it checked. I got a rude shock when the doctor asked me to close my left eye and then read from my right eye.. I was blind!! So yet again I am getting my glasses made. This time I have no option other than wearing them..
I am still sulking over the fact that I have to wear glasses. My eyes reject lenses.
I took 2 hours to select my glasses and I think I will stick to them. I will post up pictures....!! The geeky, nerdy version of me.

Coming back to the weather it is really getting hot and I am really getting restless. I am off to the mountains soon. Ah, mountains give me so much peace and calm. I don't see any snowstorm this time *Fingers Crossed*

So yeah it looks like that February will always be my month. I will always have stories and anecdotes. For sure, I will keep writing and bragging about them. I love to talk about all those things which make me sit up and think.. Good/Bad whatever..
Before I sign off I wanted to share a couple of things.. Remember how I am rediscovering myself..? This time I thought of sharing a few things.. I have got pretty hooked to painting.. and yeah I am "re-learning" a lot of things and it feels good. Learning things which I had forgotten about. I decided to make use of my joblessness. Most People spend their lives without any passions. They let the fire die. I decided to live my life a little through my creativity.. :). Oh, I feel like an artist just like my name.

Some of my latest works or should I call them my babies?

Paper Mache Bowl..

This one was hardest.. My first time on an easel

I am a romantic at heart!

  3. Maybe I misread your caption on the last painting. Or maybe you do not know your posts too.

  4. @Anon: Mera blog, Mera mood, meri Marzi..
    On second thoughts... May be I don't know my posts but at least I know my name.
    I don't take the easy way out ridiculing others on their blogs using 'Anons' as a crutch.

  5. Anonymous - Leaving scathing comments anonymously, clearly shows how you aren't qualified to talk about courage either.
    Do yourself a favour, take off your trousers, locate your balls, remove the shrink-wrap and use them. Not the shrink-wrap, your balls!

  6. whoa whoa whoa... from defensive to suddenly taking a shot! Hands down agree to "Mera blog, Mera mood, meri Marzi..". But Internet is a public place and I just expressed my opinion! Plucked a nerve there it seems. Apologies!

    Eby - Though I never talked about courage but you sure seem to have too much of it... How are you using it? I mean other than taking "named" shots using your "fabulous" command on the language, on something no one asked your opinion on? Bouncing balls are a problem I guess... Did you check if they didn't escape?

  8. Ooh that reprimand really put me in my place, brrr!!
    Unlike yours, my opinion was actually sought!

    "named shots", "Did you check if they didn't escape?" - Evidently, your command of the language sucks!
