Me myself & myself

How many times do we just sit all alone outside the house staring at trees.. the roads... the houses around...
All of them are either so busy.. or want to catch up some sleep which they missed during weekedays.. or watch TV or surf the net.. or watch a movie.. but have we got some time where we can just sit back and keep staring at nothing... just think back on something...somethings past.. do we sit n remember about people who were part of our lives.. Do we just leave our past and keep running towards our future... And these days we are running so that we can live even tomorrow's life today...
Ok now all this questions and statements were coz I did it today...

i was bored sitting in my room, well today was not that boring compared to many other sundays I have spent.. :)

I just opened the front door.. It was a little hot... but not that one couldnt go out at all.. So I took one chair outside... then I took another one..switched on my mp3 player... put on my headphones... (now I understand y ppl in US always have earphones or headphones always.. thats the best company here )
Then I took a book n pen (had been long since I wrote something on paper)...
I went out at 2.30 PM
Sat there and stared for a while.. then I started feeling a little different.. i started writing and then by 4.30 I had nearly 4-5 pages full of my thoughts[of course with breaks in between just looking at the superb cars going around..].... now it was still hot outside... and since I was sitting on one chair and my legs on the other..i nealty closed my book and closed my eyes.... and those 10 minutes which i slept there was gr8... i was in such a deep sleep, when i woke up I felt I slept for hours...
It was a gr8 2 and half experience with me myself and myself :)

I came inside to sleep for half an hr in AC.. but then somehow i had lost the sleep.. so opened this up to put this memorable experience of mine :)

yeah, nowadays its hard.. to catch with memories..! But, I almost remember everyone daily.. may be I am not so busy :p.. or I make up the time that I am free. hehe.. but nice thoughts!.. so your 4-5pages of thoughts was series of thoughts.. or broken links, random paragraphs?

sit sometime in d balcony..i do it deliberately sometiems...to sit n do nothing ...and just stare out from
d balcony...it has a therapeutic effect..

hi art,

a very nice and reflective post...i am aware of blank sessions when we stare at nothing, i often indulge in such sessions. they say it is not possible to be a human and not think at the same time, but believe me, those are the periods when there is no thought process involved..at least it works like that for me...byways, the pics are really beautiful, u live in that house? a beautiful one...
