dear Nachi, get well soon...

...this past weekend was bad. at least it started off badly enough...and all i have to show for my labours is the following pictures (go check them all out at the photo blog).








***


also, attended my first proper funeral this weekend. saw how the death of a loved one utterly destroys even the most resilient and the strongest of people.
someone else's anguish almost made me cry and for once i hated death from the very depths of my heart.



the lone leaf. always alone in death.



***


stole something from a beautiful friend. told her i'd give it back. i intend to keep my word. tomorrow i will return what is her's.



***


i sped onwards. i fell. i hurt...i picked myself up and walked on. i am healing.



***


i celebrated life and friendship and the things that remind me that life is indeed good despite the pain. i had fun! cause the one thing that i am genuinely good at is having fun. and cake. and more cake. actually 3 cakes..

its good being human isnt it, exploring the rythms of the land, the walks and footsteps of people. and the occasional fullstops. what is great is when u dont project urself as someone else, as something outside of who u are and then expect people to accept it.

i like this post alot, ur marked words, brings alot of meaning, into the life of Nachi :)

and damn u for the cake pictures. u doink! grrrr....

Nachi said...

Ghosty: ...you doink! :)

in any case, we have to put on so many masks in our life bro, its a necessity at times. but there is no need in pretending and no shame in feeling. no point in lying.

the life of Nachi is pretty simple. but i guess that simplicity is the hardest to fathom.

sad one mixed with some good deep thoughts..

glad to see some philosophical pourings.. i can talk like that only when i am drunk..

Nachi said...

Chriz: ...you should listen to me when i have a pint in my hand! Confucius and Kafka would be damned while Plato throws up in a corner...

life and philosophy and fun go hand in hand

cheers mate!

Get well soon Nachi

Your spirit for life touches me somewhere :) Reading your posts always makes me think

thanks buddy :)

Nachi said...

Keshi: i know that girl!! and i totally embrace the life that beckons before death...still, it hurt me deep to see someone else hurt. someone i have looked up to and loved was reduced to a wreck...and that is what made me hate death!

Mehreen: 'life' is supposed to be infectious Meh! as for my spirit, i just don't know how to give up and i always hope...

...your words mean a lot to me. thank you for bringing a *BIG* smile to my face!!
