This year as I watched a kid celebrate Diwali – carefully setting his rocket before lighting it on fire… I realized how similar this is to our lives.
When we aim and set our lives on a particular course, and then life surprises you by taking on a whole new path. As we ride on these misbehaving rockets we initially have the ‘Oh-No’ moment, but then we begin to enjoy the new path and the surprises it unfolds. By the end of the show we are standing up, jaws dropped, wide eyed…all amused, all happy!
The uncertainity… isn’t this what the fun is all about!
I met a seafaring sailor recently. More than a passionate and insightful man, he is an interesting and genuine friend. Edo Passarella is a National Geographic explorer, sailor and travel writer. Edo is creative in his own ways and likes to sail out into the sea in his own yacht. Once in a while at sea, he scribbles a line or two, about the wide blue expanse that lay before him. He was kind enough to write a guest post for HOA.
I am glad to be sharing this, and thank you Edo! Guys, do drop in comments for Edo’s lines!
In the harbor tonight,
won’t swim fishes
nor you can’t see rats,
’cause the moon looks like a bowl of milk,
surrounded by millions of cats.
(In porto stanotte
non nuotano pesci,
non s’odono ratti.
Sarà che la luna
è una scodella di latte,
con attorno milioni
Here I sit by my bed side, looking at the world through my Window.
As I see the world move by in dialogues, I wonder
If it’s the same for people who use Mac OS.
