A Peace Photograph

what is peace?is it just a myth we talk about to sustain ourselves in this mad rush of life?well, i really dont know n frankly i have almost stopped caring.i've lived too long in the veiled double-edged security of metaphors.but it's true that life's beautiful when we try to relish the present.that's what i'm endeavouring to do,as of now.
m home-in my small,sleepy lil town!well,again home is also a metaphor...a metophor which holds happiee memories for me-folks,my best buddies,my darling dogs,d neat garden i see from my window and a plethora of images from a happy past.everytime i come back here,i still try to relive the innocence,the salad-days!
this evening,i and three other friends went down to our favourite hangout spot again..the place we call our "peace" photograph!this particular place is near the tezpur bridge,when you enter my humble town,the green grass growing luxuriantly as the trees invite the wind to make love to our imagination.the mighty brahmaputra flowing unceasingly beneath these lush wild growth of nature.coleridge must have felt like i do everytime i pass thru this place when he composed,"Methinks, it should have been impossible
Not to love all things in a world so fill'd;
Where the breeze warbles, and the mute still air
Is Music slumbering on her instrument."
standing there,chatting about a year gone by when we were living our lives in our own ways,trying to sort out the chaos in each others' minds,we felt we were always so close to our roots,a notion i have questioned at times.i know that my blog sounds more like a whimsical note on my wayward musings,but than i dont really care.i am happiee today...yes,"happiee" with a "i" and two "ee"s in it.and somehow i feel i neednt think so much about the future or bother too much about the past.what matters is that if i believe that the universe conspires to work things out for you when you have faith,i should start living life on my terms again...like the free spirit i should to be!!
so here's to me and a new beginning.isnt homecoming all about that?when you are tired and jaded,disillusioned and bitter,a glimpse of a place you once called "home" brings out a person within you which you might have refused to assert for long.
i feel nude and i feel free.
thank god for the simple pleasures,yet again...


my dedication for tonight...what else but floyd's "if":-

If I were a swan, I'd be gone.
If I were a train, I'd be late.
And if I were a good man,
I'd talk with you more often than I do.
If I were to sleep, I could dream.
If I were afraid, I could hide.
If I go insane, please don't put your wires in my brain.

If I were the moon, I'd be cool.
If I were a book, I would bend.
If I were a good man, I'd understand the spaces between friends.
If I were alone, I would cry.
And if I were with you, I'd be home and dry.
And if I go insane, will you still let me join in with the game?

If I were a swan, I'd be gone.
If I were a train, I'd be late again.
If I were a good man, I'd talk to you more often than I do.

The feeling that you're describing is so double edged as well, isn't it? Sometimes it makes you calm and relaxes you, bringing with it faith in the cosmos, while at other times, it serves only to sharpen the chaos and brings unsurmountable stress.

I relate!

peace to me is a state of mind where contradictions cease to exist, primarily by justification.
and its important to care,but whats far more important is to know wht to care about!
