I got sand in my shoes..

So am going to Goa to enjoy Sun,sand & the sound of waves! Super excited!Yay! Am supposed to be packing but am surfing stuff predictably like the net junkie that i am .

dido_20090214_2177I came across this song of Dido’s that i used to hear in school. You can always sing her song with or without instruments. Her voice always conjures up imaginings of a campfire with family & friends , someone on the guitar &  one other singing.Her songs have that earthy, intimate feeling. She seems so real, relatable & easy to love kinda person.

Yeah so am going away for a while & yeah Ill have to return & its so weird that I know this is exactly how i’ll feel when i return. I just like this song cause i know when i get back I’ll be all like – I still got sand in my shoes….” Its like taking a snapshot of the future & seeing it but its Dido so its all good !

Here the Song & below are the lyrics that are just soo spot on!


Two weeks away feels like the whole world should have changed,
But I’m home now, and things still look the same.
I think I’ll leave it ’til tomorrow to unpack,
Try to forget for one night that I’m back in my flat.
On the road where the cars never stop going through the night,
To a life where I can’t watch the sun set.
I don’t have time.
I don’t have time.
……..
Tomorrow’s back to work and down to sanity,
Should run a bath and then clear up the mess i made before i left here.
Try to remind myself that i was happy here,
Before I knew that I could get on a plane and fly away,
From the road where the cars never stop going through the night,
To a life where I can watch the sun set,
And take my time.
Take all my time.

I’ve still got sand in my shoes….

(This before even leaving!! Sighhh… )

Homosexuality- A state of being.

Gay jokes aren’t funny.

You don’t have to be gay or straight to know that , you need to be  compassionate, you need to have courage to challenge the “norm”. And when someone says- What are you -gay? in an insulting tone because that’s the best “comeback” they can conjure up…

Remember then, that it doesn’t matter whether you are or you are not , you don’t react like a cat on hot bricks. You question the
relevance of the remark, you question how would it matter if you were gay… Cause its not an insult, its a state of being.

I recommend this short, well made movie specially for those who have a difficult time in accepting the “Queers”. You may want to
see this challenging movie.It might give you a glimpse of what it feels like to be misunderstood and help in discovering your
compassion….

It may just help you understand, that homosexuality may or may not make sense to you,you may or may not accept it, but it is a fact & you can decide how you react to that fact- With compassion or with misplaced judgement.

My call ? – Life is too short to be an asinine, adult bully with ill formed opinions.

The photo above could be 2 women, or 2 men or a man and a woman holding hands & it would still remain the same – a representation of a close bond shared , & that is pretty sacred stuff whatever your belief.

Homosexuality- A state of being. Period.

LADY

At the risk of being lame & being the millionth person saying some inane thingummy like  “work runneth over me & keepeth me there with face on dirt ” yeah you get the idea…yeah it kept me there & yeah it kinda led to the appalling normalisation of my head making me narrow mindedly fixed on the everyday & the mundane… I need more daydreaming time . I woefully accept to myself that my blogging has become extremely erratic I just got off a 4 day vacation . Its Diwali here in India !! hence i find the will to type.. neway why i did get to type & share..

Tired or not I always manage to discover or rediscover songs that uplift my day .

Tonight’s choice is rose tinted, laidback , salt of the earth, country music . Again one from days of yore (Parents’ time i mean :P), i discovered this gem… I hum it every now  then. Its got a very magical tune & the sincerest lyrics ever written. A beautiful composition fit for a lady. The song is – LADY by Kenny Rogers.

Here is what Wiki tells me about it : The song was written and produced by Lionel Richie, recorded in 1980, and ranks among Kenny Rogers’s biggest hits. Rogers once told an interviewer, “The idea was that Lionel would come from R&B and I’d come from country, and we’d meet somewhere in pop.”

I heard the song & i went all like  “& dats how u woo a lady………. old school knew the finer rules..unforgettable song this! “Sigh… girls just sigh… & weep for an era gone by while the lads learn to figure out how to sway to Dubstep. Dont get me wrong i like dubstep too! It just stands no chance against an old school like this when you go about the fine art of wooing .. no? Ok back to sighing.. (Disclaimer : All this sighing does not make me a pansy, don’t get my nailpaint wet small girlie. Its called allowing myself my whims 🙂 ) Ok now that that’s clear we can enjoy the song again…si..g..h…….
