The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 11,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

It was evening seven and there was chill breeze in the surrounding. The New Year celebration had already began and sky was colorful with fireworks. Many people had gathered in park with families to watch the fireworks go colorful and adorn the sky. Sam, aged around 40’s was sitting in the park looking at the sky. He was alone on the bench. Just then a teenager came and sat beside him.
He started complaining about his life, restrictions and bragging about his part time job and seemed upset. He said “ Am just so upset with everything! I don’t see anything good “
There was a silence for a while and Sam replied,“Son, good lies everywhere. You just need to see it. You see what you decide to see. Look at me, I love being at park listening to people around. Am happy because I feel the happiness around me, I look at sky and feel the happiness. You should give a fresh try at looking at things. ”
The teenager responded, “You might have seen everything good in life so far! ”
Sam answered, “I am blind son ”. And he slowly got up and walked away with help of his stick.
I had a question,
Did not knew whom to ask.
I had no answer,
For no one knew what question was.
If question need not be the one,
Simple answer is just to ask!
After a tiring semester with still a hundreds of deadlines in the list, a quick short vacation to home and “The Home, Family, pets, friends, garden, food, couch, TV, bed and all the best moments”, PRICELESS!
With every new first, grows the list,
Longer the list, happier amid-st.
The first’s will come, some direct
Some in disguise, rest unknown.
Reset your mind, for every second,
To treat the second, to be like exactly the first!
Even when the sun ends the day with his set, he goes with exquisiteness. But he doesn’t take alone the credit. It’s the surrounding which adds beauty to this set. Though sun is the same, the sunset is not the same at all spaces. Only the heart warming ones are captured and framed.
The message is clear. We need to choose the environment to be well liked and accepted.
