A Thought...with reasons...

The wandering heart,
A fiery place.
Where cold tidal waves
Quench volcanic passions.

The wandering mind,
A conundrum-like maze.
Where fleeting thoughts
Cause permanent actions.

The wandering soul,
A lonely stranger.
Where going forward
Is the only way back.

Well, I posted this on Priya's blog originally...but I thought that I had to talk about how this came up. The end of a lazy day, it was. Lazy? Because the power kept going on and off at work, and at some point we had to shut down our systems and sit around doing nothing. The UPS, apparently, couldn't keep us operational if something like this happened for longer than an hour. Enough bitching about the state of the infrastructure and basic services here in India... And finally, or in the usual manner, this came up. Well, there was that little bit about the national registry in the previous post...and the thinking carried on in this fashion.

Weird, because the thinking in the last couple of days has been more external. Trying to take in and make sense of the random events that are gripping this world. Bombings in London...People dying in Iraq...People being robbed/raped/killed in Bangalore...same old, same old. And then, this sort of popped into my head. So, I decided to follow this train of thought...and to Google it...and I came across an interesting site. Must look into it further myself, but at first glance it seemed pretty cool. And now? The time has come for me to get up out of my seat, shut my system down, and head home for the evening. Headache imminent, but then again, it's been on the sidelines since yesterday.

And as the world sleeps tonight,
Light and darkness, side by side.
And people on their merry way,
For tomorrow is another day....

Ciao.
