Ad Infinitum

A never ending carnival of thoughts


Thursday, April 22, 2010

Recently, I got an opportunity to travel for 2 continuous days, halting at several places in between. I find it very inspiring. These are some lines I scribbled during this period.

Not surprising that most of the songs, poems or stories are written while traveling.

There comes Joey, Hey Joey! Wherez your bass?
Says Joey: 'Its next to Fredie', he means Fredie's case.
We've packed our van with food and cans,
We're leaving for a tour to NeverLand!!
Oh NeverLand, Where IS that place?
I say its in our Hearts...
5 lunatics with musical-minds and a van full of gas.....
When we stopped by the Reverb-Inn, to play for our heart's Joy,
Charlie sang each note a pitch high and Joey didn't tune his bass...
Eddie thew his stick at the crowd and Fredie lost a few beats...

We play at our terms in NeverLand,
A sacred place it is..
No manager or crowd to please,
And thats the way it is..

Freddy shared a song he wrote,
I asked him, 'Hows this lead ?',
'Just play it with your heart man,
You're the best!' he said to me..
Soon others joined in the group and notes began 2 flow
More instruments and notes poured in as we began to grow

Our van stops only where we want,
Where we want to play our thing,
Where Charlie can sing the way he wants
And where Eddie can Just slam his toms,
Our amplifiers blare out 2 loud,
As we play to our hearts for long..

We play at our terms in NeverLand,
A sacred place it is..
No manager or crowd to please,
And thats the way it is..

If you are passionate about music, you will be able to understand the real essence of this.

May you arrive at your NeverLand :) (irony not intended)


Much-needed Return

After Ages I return to my blog!
Feels Great! :)

Well, Life has undergone a complete 360 degree spin since then. After college, you come to the real-world, become more responsible for your actions, have several things to juggle, you think about what is to come but still cling to what has gone by and most importantly but sadly, you have to strive to stay in touch with people who bring happiness to you, making it even more difficult. Growing up is never easy...

Add a job to that, a job that is in a different city...where you have to adjust right from changing your food preferences to learning the local language...take care of some basic chores like cleaning up the whole apartment every weekend (that used to be fun :)), managing the 'Common Pool' (i was living with 2 friends and we maintained a central pool, used for general living related needs) and a few more things. This was a great experience in the journey of 'growing up', I crave for independence, to not rely on others and to do my things my way and I got exactly that... along with it: a whole new bunch of responsibilities.

In short: Life HAS taken a different shape, in terms of priorities, beliefs and goals (not good with mathematics) and I am trying my best to make a good life :) Shall keep posting...

PS: A note for people who have always been there... Nishi n Rahul-people i can trust my life with :), Positive influences like GS, Malvika, Ankit...and ofcourse void * for encouragement (dunno what its called these days lol), thanks :)
