He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep...

Yesterday during one of the random reading in the my meditation center library, I discovered this Spanish poet Antonio Machado. He got my attention by the following lines.
People possess four things
that are no good at sea:
anchor, rudder, oars
and the fear of going down.
Wanderer, your footsteps are
the road, and nothing more;
wanderer, there is no road,
the road is made by walking.
By walking one makes the road,
and upon glancing behind
one sees the path
that never will be trod again.

Oh ! God ! I am so bad in reading sign languages, after spending 40 days of my life in silent meditation retreats I felt there are many feeling that can be conveyed without use of languages. But thanks to this puzzle (trying to read a of non-existing sign languages in pain), it got me closer to many lovely people and I was able to feel their love as they tried to put a smile back in my face!

Yesterday went on a long drive in the beautiful English countryside , crossing the prime meridian to meet friends in their new house. My friends who hosted me from the very first day in Cambridge and healed my post-phd depression in their woodend clinic with their lovely pets, cider and their love. They now moved to a beautiful village in the countryside ,Yesterday as I was driving through the fields, i came across fox (unfortunately without George Clooney's voice) . But the return journey almost close to midnight was bit scary,Without a single car on the dark and rainy road, trying to avoid the wild animals on the way, twice got scared by seeing my own car seats in the rear mirror :-( felt like I was playing a part in a scary movie! With that fresh adrenalin on the road to the new woodend clinic, now charged to face the whole new adventure at my work!

What of yours did you lose?
Why or for what are you crying?
What did you bring with you, for you to lose it?
What did you create, for it to be wasted or destroyed?
Whatever you took, it was taken from here.
Whatever you gave, it was given from here.
Whatever is yours today, will belong to someone else tomorrow.
On another day, it will belong to yet another.
This change is the law of the universe.

Feels like I just woke from a long sleep, these trees were green just few weeks back. How did I fail to notice the changing colours in my campus, when did I last see the fishes in the Cam running through my campus. Well! Sports car watching is not as calm and relaxing as the fish watching. Colours of my campus, please take me back!

I have used this word “soft-corner” a million times in my life, never had a second thought about this word, and never wanted to check the meaning in the dictionary. I just wanted to believe that a corner of my heart/ mind with beautiful feelings is meant for the special people I meet in life. Outside my mind, in reality, in dictionary this soft-corner doesn’t exist, there is only a soft-spot. Now with this reality standing before me...mind is struggling to find a place for the special people and the fictional relationship my mind developed in that soft-corner. What can I do? my dear angel..why did you put me in this non-exisiting 'soft-corner', till I find my answer, I can just tell myself these lines from my favourite movie Memento! or ..maybe..this is my answer..
I have to believe that when my eyes are closed, the world is still there.
Do I believe the world is still there? Is it still out there? Yeah!
We all need mirrors to remind ourselves who we are. I’m no different.
Now, where was I?"

Some adventures for the day, during the lunch break watched colleagues flying this remote controlled baby plane. It was completely designed and hand made by them and can fly up to 4 kms it seems. So, my next hobby is to make one, we were planning to open a small flying club to learn to fly this plane first using stimulation software (we can’t afford to crash this plane made with foam) . Running behind these plane in the football ground got a thorn in my feet, how many times I have done that in my childhood days, I wish my mom is here to take that out.

It's lunch hour walk around the campus. Today stopped over the bridge across Cam that runs in the campus, was amazed to see the school of fishes under the bridge swimming against the current . Why do they do that? May be that is what keeps them grounded to a location with minimum effort. They are sort of in harmony with their surrounding in spite of not swimming with the current? Last few weeks I feel this sort of a strange harmony in life.

This is what we got, “This can be a tough match, if only because Sagittarius are so direct, and Pisces are so diplomatic in the way they approach communication. Your Sagittarius can come across uncaring, too blunt, and even deliberately hurtful. When confronted with these feelings, Sagittarius may respond by saying, "Well, you asked, didn't you?" Arguments go around and around on this topic between Pisces and Sagittarius and can eventually kill the relationship.
Pisces with Sagittarius is not an easy. Your most obvious difference is that Pisces are sentimental romantics who wear their hearts on their sleeves. Pisces will not respond well to your brutal honesty. Pisces wouldn't dream of being as direct with you -- or anyone else -- and they are careful to surround their negative comments with positive ones to soften them. You feel that this is too much work. Pisces might respond by saying you ought to be more caring. One rule: It's absolutely critical to take your Pisces' feelings seriously. Sagittarius can too often make the mistake of dismissing them.”
Well! Most of the things happened to be true, especially “Pisces wouldn't dream of being as direct with you”.... During my Paris exist days, I was having Japanese dinner with two Pisceans who happen to know that I am allergic to fishes and saw me ordering miso soup during our few visits to Japanese restaurants, If it was one my Sagittarian friend He/She might have said on my face, “Stupid! Girl, why are you ordering miso soup when you were allergic to fishes”, and I would have replied “Shut up! I know!”, but in this case it was Pisceans, so they created a mini 10 minute drama just to convey this statement to me, the first fish asked the second one, what is miso soup? Where it comes from? And how it is made? So indirectly trying to make me realize that it is made of fish. I felt like screaming at the top of my voice, “ I am allergic to fishes, but I love miso soups! Do you have any problems with that Fish? “
Just like this love for Miso soup and allergy(hate) for Fishes in my life, many people I adore and respect in my life are Pisceans too, like my ex-boss, a friend from college, my first friend in Paris and infact this Cambridge friend..
