The Last Post

Well, I hope this is the last post of the year. In the army, the last post is played at the end of the day..as a remembrance for those dead. Thats what I hope this post will be, and those dead being the ones who are dead..and in more ways than one.
There is an ancient Chinese (what else could it be...Hawaian?) saying, "May u live in interesting times", only I missed the plot rather completely and forgot that it was a curse and that living in interesting times is not often interesting for those living through those times. 2006 was an interesting year to have lived through. I still cant figure out what i did and what should i describe it as. Was it courage or was it just plain stupidity or worse still... something worse, I still cant figure out. Time will tell someday. Until that time, as Vikram seth put it so very beautifully in "From heaven lake", "I seem to wander around the world, accumulating material for future nostalgias". So here's to a less interesting 2007.



May you be free of the need of making futile gestures...



The need to bear losses you cannot understand the need for...



May u have ample shelter always..



Unconditional love....



Partnership in all things dear.....



Booze in plenty...



And the ability to reach home the next morning...and not get a scolding.

Happy
New
Year
Folks!!!!!!

hmm. you have been posting pictures of flowers, animals, trees, and... eerr people as well. Are you displaying these pictures with their permission? I wonder how that sleeping dog would feel if he saw his/her pic on net.

P.S by the way ..I like your work. i think it is great that u can take whatever u want and display it in ur own way with your own comment. all power to u:)
