Randomness

A new short story - Tr-i-rony - Story 1 : Ramdin is up on the short story blog. The link is on the right.
_____________________________________________________________
The weather here has been nothing short of freezing for the past couple of weeks. There has been abundant snowfall. Here are some pics that I took in the forest past weekend.

Ice on a log in the lake.

The surreal White Path to Neverland

Bare Naked Ladies

Frosting on Natural Ice Cream


In this weather though the grey matter was mobile. So here are some random thoughts from the almost frozen brain.-
- A sentence like I had a good sleep - isnt this an assumption as there is no way to verify it unless you are awake. How and on what do we base that the sleep was good. Isnt it the waking up that is actually different that makes us beleive that we had a good sleep.
- Another one God Bless You - Now here first we assume that the person believes in God and that he/she is not an atheist or agnostic. Also we never verify if the person really needs blessing at that given moment of time.
Now taking it furthur many people wish you saying God Bless You with (something) but will it not be fair to give a Gift Card of virtual blessing instead of a specific one. That way the blessed will make the best use of it as he/she deems it.
- What really happens when someone is always in a bad mood and does not like being funny. Is his/her Funny Bone fractured. But that is not possible as Funny Bone is really not a bone but a most unprotected nerve in your arm that is very sensitive. So what really goes wrong and what is the purpose of calling a nerve a bone - Why confuse us?
- Another one Hang In There - now if you tell someone who is perplexed or suicidal - think about the consequences. He/she can really ask you Where to hang? Also where is this place really that one can Hang when we are troubled. I have never found it. Is it a place where by hanging we dry up our emotions like clothes dring in the sun and then we feel better.
- When someone ask you over the phone What's Up? What do they mean? Do they want to know where I am standing and what is over my head. Do I answer that its the sky, or a tree or a ceiling. The only time such a statement can help is when you are standing below a tree and the bird has just pooped and you are asked at that very moment What's Up? It can save you the hit and stink.
And dont forget the Short Story

What forest did you go to?? It looks COOLD! Brrrr!

The first one I think I can answer...
you have slept well if you remember nothing about your sleep! No dreams, no waking up every hour, no cold sweats or tears, no feeling of "where am i" when you wake up!

Ok, differentiate between Hanging In and Hanging Out, please :)

What's up is ok I guess. Just a short form of what are you up to?

Funny Bone...I suppose its funny how confusing this is?

--xh-- said...

:) man, the forest do looks inviting and cold :-D

nice snaps...

Hiren said...

dude, looks like you are really high on the white powder ....

Beautiful photography Ceedy...lekin honestly..I'm tired of seeing all of this almost everyday + I'm very very tired of the hubby lettin me freeze inside the car or outside waiting for him , whilst hez clicking pics of wat he calls "mindblowin views" ! Sigh...u guessed rite..im awaiting spring!

n haaan..lagta hai aapka brains sach mein frozen hai..

A good night's sleep..is when u wake up feeling refreshed in the morning!

n damn is that wat u were thinking when I said "bless u" to u on ur B'day? but ya i agree...i think i wld prefer gift cards too![HINT!!!]:D

Deepali said...

Hey very nice pics. I would never have guessed that the first it was actually ice on the log. Doesn't really look like ice hehe.
