A Stroll

Wish I could take a stroll alone

Mindful of not harming the wet grass below my soft feet

Unmindful of a spontaneous tear dropping from the eye

Ruminating on the words of a Gibran or a Ghalib

Today I understood that an overdose of happiness can also disturb the Buddhist equilibrium of the accepted state of physical being.

Short is beautiful...

Happiness is at times a rare commodity. Getting it is more important than quantity.

Paresh,
Now I feel an overdose of happiness when I read this, when I know that happiness is so much with you. Don't be scared to be happy, thinking that it will not last. The important thing is to enjoy it while it lasts, howsoever small or big the period. Tomorrow is another day!!!
