How are you?

Even the light of the computer screen sparks a headache. The slightest sound, that of the rustling of a polythene bag, can trigger a ferocious fury. This, barely two days into the new year, seems unfair and jinxed.

Still here I am, writing for strangers and friends alike, writing for myself. For writing is the best medicine for me. Medicines, often as costly as the doctor thinks you can afford, have also been prescribed. Books ease up the tension that silence brings and radio gives the illusion of company. Strange working hours can make your system go upside down, inside out and yet, at the end of it, you love the liberty of daytime that the job offers. I am raring to go again to the incessant clicking of keyboards and the frequent references to the style book.

It's not just headaches and feeling low. There are things worth looking up to. I have been included in the Mysore Blog Park fraternity. The page rank, that had dropped to 3 some days back, is now again back at 4. Two-three more people now follow my blog. I will be well, soon. In the meanwhile, tell me how have you been...

Dear Gauri,
Yes, I can understand the irritations caused by the noises around us, when we are unwell.But it is the youthfulness and the inbuilt tendency to search for happiness and positive attitude,which overcomes all stresses of mind and soul and puts us back to our most precious and lovely meaningful life...i think, this is an eternal creeper, which keeps on blossoming throughout our life, yelding flowers and fruits of hopes,love and life...I will put it this way...." Ame to amratvel na phul re, khiliye maosam maosam..."- `khalish'( we are the flowers of nectar creeper, we blossom in all seasons...)...
Keep it up and be happy always.

A blue phase ? Have faith in that ol cliche :"This too shall Pass !" :-) Get well soon. Best Wishes.

I had some down moments earlier this year too but it's passed. I know it will for you too. Meanwhile I don't know why but I just can't get your blogfeeds on my roll so I often tend to forget to have a look-in here which is a shame because I love and greatly admire your little poetic offerings. Get well soon and stay well.
