Status Quo or Soaring to new heights ? The choice is in your hand, say the pigeons during my morning walk today.
Pandemic may come and hopefully go; but there is no doubt that if it is early April, you will see the Central Park at the Newyork city springing up to life, providing happiness, cheer and hope.
Time to sign off from the USA for the year 2021.
Sankey Tank at Malleswaram, Bangalore is ready for me.
au revoir; abiento.
The essence of Spring time rising viewed from the 25th floor of Upper East of Manhattan with iPhoneX accompanied by the soft music by my grandchildren. What else do one need to brighten up the day?
The dark days of COVID-19 combined with the cold winter could force anyone to be tugged under the comforter and lie down on the bed even when awake particularly on a Sunday. Well, I have a different story to tell.
Sunday 24th January 2021 – It was the day after I got “moderna-ized”. Wondering about the new English word coined here ! Yes, the previous day I got the first doze of the much anticipated COVID vaccine from Moderna, making me feel that sometimes getting old is helpful (Got the appointment because I was more than 65 years old – physically).
As typical of an old timer, I got up at 0600 hrs on a cold and frigid Sunday morning with temperature smoothly gliding down to 12 deg F (Remember that I am guy who spent all his life at around 32 deg C. !). I had a choice to make – a choice about how I feel.
In my life, whenever I had to make choices, I had the luck of having someone close to me to lean my shoulders on and pause before making the choice. This Sunday is no exception. As my “close someone” unfolded himself to me, I made my choice.
THERE IS HOPE; THERE IS A BRIGHTER SIDE TO LIFE. LOOK AT THAT AND START THE DAY.
I did. Here is what I looked at from my windows.
From around 8 pm on Christmas Eve, till 5 pm on Christmas Day, the thunderstorm that swept through left us at Southampton, Long Islands without Internet. When the storm left, there was a brief period of 10 mts when the sky opened up. I rushed outside to catch a glimpse. Here are some unedited shots from my iPhone. Message is clear – you can be without power or you can be unconnected with others socially; but you cannot disconnect yourselves from Nature.
“Who says that Autumn means only colorful leaves of trees that fall ! We are there too providing substance than shine. Unlike leaves, for us partition from our parents is not easy. We don’t run away from from our parents like the leaves do”. – says these creations of Nature.
Life is positively colorful.
Life is positively colorful 24x7x365. There is no need for despair. Let us enjoy life fully.
There is nothing more colorful to watch the sky at sun rise particularly in early winter in my place at Bangalore. The colors thrown at us by Nature through all its medium is just refreshing. All you got to do is just walk and enjoy.
