Living the moments...

I had a nice evening today... After office, i just sat in the car today.. trying to switch on the mp3 player.. then a sudden thought occured... listen to more songs... and go somewhere.. So I started off on the long drive....

So off I went for the Drive.. from Macon to Jackson... They are 40 miles apart.. so I spent totally 1.5 hrs driving and listening to songs.... and I must say it was gr8...

Normally, I wouldnt like to be alone so long.... but today i had no regrets... I was singing all along... had opened up the sun-roof in the car.. so that cool air could just come in & out... Was singing so loud..... My God.. I felt like I was freeing myself.... Doing nothing.. but just going on and on... Well I always thought of going for a long drive.. but never thought would go all alone... and that too on a weekday...

I had been for this drive with D a couple of times... but it was so different when I went today... it felt like the old me... for a few minutes I just forgot that I was in US or even that I am far from my family... I was just living those moments....

I did this at least 4 times when I was in Boise. The places were usually up the hill near the ski resort on the hill... I love music and I love driving! I like to be alone in such situations - I can sing all I want in my donkey voice without a care! :)

Srini,
hmm..thats nice... but i dont think i would like to be alone.. i would always prefer company.. and still have my private space when required :)

Deepa,
ya.. the song is too good.. but i liked all the songs :)
This was the first time i tried.. and had nice fun..
well seems like a friend's opinion has changed something for u... happened to me too..

Seema,
Ya... but i carry boredom along with it sometimes.. even though i enjoyed it... i would like to do it with loved ones too

Karthik,
Well it really was too good... But I do miss all that which u have out there

Sat,
Hmm.. very true.. and thank u for the compliment

Deepa,
dont worry u will do this one day too.. nice to see u here

FSS 1982,
Surely u have to try it... Talking to walls and curtains.. hmm I think I can go to my roomie and talk.. so not that much of a prob.. :)

endevourme,
