Owl, Who?



Indian Bloggers

ph-quote5

An owl disguised as a crow,
Barged in at day light,
Soliciting superfluous questions,
Crafting pointless propositions!

It wanted to seize a trade,
Forgetting dark was its arena.
It wanted to rule the light,
As a self declared king!

Where poise flew excess,
Uneven mind lost its conviction,
Even its fart smelled perfume,
Loyalty had left the room.

Fellow owls had a meeting that night,
No one could track its fate.
For it was not seen by any,
That day was end of its many!


Tagging for the daily post prompt: Uneven

The Poops and the Presentation



Indian Bloggers

days-months-years

The Designer Poop
Little do the goats know that its poop decorates the street it takes, like designer balls hanging along with window curtains.  The thing is, in the run of life we all leave the poop and it is not necessary that it got to stink. Life isn’t stationary and it isn’t specific either and so are the poop-y issues. Without getting lost in the messy definitions of life, let’s learn to celebrate the poop.

The Environment
Complicating unwanted life issues however simple it is though has been one of the human’s innate talent. We always like some extra toppings on whatever that melts or solidifies.  Let’s not forget to mention the credits for our near and dear ones, neighbors and unwanted other spam crowd who come and add some spicy bits contributing more deliciousness to our personal life issues.

The Mocktail Invention
But, be kind, like an animal that can’t make a speech. Enjoy the dish you are boiling, whipping, drying, toasting, roasting and make sure that the poop from that is a non stinky dish. Now we know that it is impossible to have a non smelly poop and it is called so for a reason. But there lies the invention test!  Making the outcomes of our life issues smell bad is like wearing our own socks covering head to neck. The stench can be concealed and decorated with a silver foil, perfumes, etc to offer our life lessons in the most presentable way. What I want to say is, it’s okay to cry behind the scene while we make and present a mocktail out of our tears in the foreground.

Presentation Matters
People are attracted to good looking things no matter how bad the taste is. Or put it the other way round, we have taste buds to pretty much swallow anything of any kind. The gist here is the lesson to learn from goats poop. Presentation matters! Are you concerned about the ones who announce, ‘It’s still a Poop!’?? Now that, I mean that does not matter. We can be deaf to those as they are the ones who are going to say for ‘anything in the world’ because it is you!

Mark my philosophy, it will help. If not, well, poop it is!


Note – This post is put together for the following prompts:

One
The daily post prompt: Specific

Two
Indispire edition number 151.
The prompt says: Pick up the book you are reading and from the 12th page, choose a word and use it as a prompt to write your next post. Try to relate it in some way to the twelve months of the New Year. Don’t forget to tell the name of the book to your readers. #TwelveMonths. 
I have been reading the book The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. From 12th page I have picked the sentence: “The only completely stationary object in the room was an enormous couch on which two young women were buoyed up as though upon an anchored balloon”. And from that stationary as my word. I have added a quote using months.

Three
I have been doing a WordPress course  on ‘Shaping Your Story‘. This is assignment for week two: Intros and Hooks. More details can be found HERE.


Important Note:

This post is a make over of a chapter from my ebook: Run – The Secret Destination. The book is a FREE download and can be found HERE.

The black font makes it visible, the pointy end positions a direction, the threads tie firm, the stick is not straight and it is put on a coarse earthy table.

The ink, flag, fiber, stick and table – all products from the same tree.

Life is a photograph, of an assortment of versions put together!

Reboot, Restart and Resume. Its 2017.

its-new

Let me assure that it’s not a regular ‘new year new me crap’! Its 2017, so it’s advanced ‘new year new me shit!’ It already made my day when my partying not so sober friend wished me “Happy Nude Rear ” and all I could do was to laugh, convey thanks and wish him the same.

I like this day as it puts everyone together. Those who want to welcome it with party, with a cake cut, with family, with books, with sleep or whatever to rest the case. Most importantly, it is like that much needed energy drink which can boost the energy levels. Apart from those regular wishes and forwards, most of us try to bring out a new version of our self atleast for the first few days, which is definitely substantial.

Reboot, Restart, Resume. Its 2017!

I know the thoughts are old and though it is yet another regular day, a new year kind of refreshes it. It’s like crossing a larger milestone and evaluating on what really needs a flush (reboot), what needs to be given a fresh start (restart) and what needs to be continued (resume). It’s the happy hope of leaving behind one year, only to welcome a much better one ahead. It’s about taking time and syncing our mentality to something new and fresh.

I am not a person who generally believes in resolutions. But this year I want to have them. They are not resolutions per say, rather more like aspirations. And I believe that making an announcement always helps in sticking to it.

I am going to follow this unless there is an extreme condition that flags okay to miss and most importantly, all this along with personal commitments!

  • At least 10 blog posts per month on this blog
  • Exactly 10 blog posts per month on my technical blog: PH Bytes
  • Read atleast 10 research papers per month
  • Complete reading atleast one novel per month (started with The Great Gatsby for this month)
  • Write and publish one ebook per month (technical or non technical. Many to join this list: EBOOKS)
  • Complete the text book I am writing on data structures (It is 200+ pages for now)
  • Finish 10 more courses on coursera (I have 28 completed so far)
  • Make a significant progress in research (Its 30% completed now)
  • Try to work on technology to bring the actual social life in society order
  • Be open to do something new and interesting

Yes, we are getting older and that only means that it’s high time to dream and realize all that makes this living meaningful.

Let us tune into the beats of 2017. It’s new! Greetings!
