Signs of rain?

April 2, 2016

Last night it rained. Can’t tell for sure, whether it was a decent rain or just a passing shower….but judging from the ground it’s maybe a one chili rain. Better than none…I guess. At this rate even if the rains do come, it’s probably going to be cumulatively less that what we usually get for April and May.

Come mid May, the dry season will close in again and it will probably be bone dry again till mid August….what a hot and dry 2016…I will be glad to see the back of this year.

‘I don’t believe. Not for one moment – it’s necessarily healthy or even possible to deny one’s thoughts or what one’s feels whenever things don’t go to plan….do that, and it’s just going to leach out in other ways and the people who love you most usually have to bear the brunt of your unhappiness.

But if you acknowledge the sense of disappointment and loss and even anger, and by this. I mean recognizing these thoughts are part and parcel of what it means to be human….then at least, you have made a genuine effort to confront the contradictions of your feelings, to even make peace with what threatens to eat you up from within along with what you should have done and did not do etc etc….my point is you’ve to make a genuine effort to confront what bothers you and NOT just shut it out of your mind with the silent treatment.

At times when I look back at all the things I’ve planned only to end up being ruled by the unexpected turn of events…all I can really do is laugh out loud to myself.

Especially when I make the effort to tease out the irony along with the black humor in running around like a cartoon character trying to do this and that only to end up where I started from…it’s comical…it’s hilarious and by injecting a sense of humor into the dark – that’s really my own personal way of acknowledging and coming to terms with failure – or maybe, it’s my way of thumbing my nose at something really big and scary by being able to laugh at it even in the prospects of impending doom. After that it’s cut and dried. I move right on. Roll up my sleeves and pick up the pieces and start over again – I guess we all have our own way of dealing with set backs…this just happens to be my way.

You’ve to really learn not to take yourself too serious and to laugh at the many problems the world throws at you. Either that or play hide and seek with your fears while it eats the best part of you up like maggots from deep inside.’
