Through the looking glass

Daily post said : You can always write about how you write. Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to become a writer. But, most importantly, I wanted to write. Honestly speaking, writing really made my Life worth living, made my Life interesting. After all, writing is another form of expressing. Through writing, I’ve learnt that you needn’t always use your voice to voice your opinion. I remember the first time I read “Alice in Wonderland” , I was 10 years old and even back then, the character of Mad Hatter fascinated me. Mad Hatter, to me, represented human emotions. Every time he put on a different hat, it seemed like he was expressing a new feeling. And I can remember how amazed I was because I was thinking “How come humans can express so many feelings?” That’s when the screen on my “looking glass” changed. I began to see things in a whole new perspective. Every time I faced an absurd situation in Life, I would pick up the book and just start reading it. And I think that’s what the book taught me. That’s what the story taught me. An absurd situation in your Life can help you gain more wisdom than a normal one.

So, every time I think of the characters in the story, that’s what inspires me to write. That’s what tells me that no matter how many surprises Life has in store for you- Good or Bad- if you look at it through the looking glass, you’ll find out that – Life is Wonderful.

“In a Wonderland they lie,

Dreaming as the days go by,

Dreaming as the summers die:

Ever drifting down the stream-

Lingering in the golden gleam-

Life, what is it but a dream?”

— Lewis Carroll (Through The Looking Glass)

Turn back the hands of Time
February 20, 2011

If I could turn back the hands of time, would I change anything? People always think of what they would do if they could go back in Time. What if they do? I always question myself. Would that change anything? Would that make a difference in my Life? Would it change the way I live? To be honest, if I could turn back the hands of time, I’d do a lot of things I couldn’t do at that particular moment. The thing is, I don’t want to. I guess that’s what makes us human. I guess that’s what makes us only human. Listening to R.Kelly’s “If I could turn back the hands of time” and I was just wondering “What if I could really change something in the past?” and I already knew the answer. If I really want to change something in the past, I need not travel back in time. I would change it now .


Smile

When I’m feeling down and sad, I always listen to Michael Jackson’s “Smile”. Hats off to Charles Chaplin for writing such a beautiful song. I can honestly say that this is one song that makes me smile and cry at the same time. Songs like these have become quite rare in the music industry these days. Apart from a few good artists, what we hear today is computerized, studio-magicked, artificial voice stuff that makes one wonder whether you’re hearing the artist or the computer speaking. Coming back to the song, it always reminds me that I have more reasons to smile than reasons I have to cry. And I think that very few songs have that impact on you. They speak straight to your soul.

Smile, though your heart is aching

Smile, even though its breaking

When there are clouds in the sky

You’ll get by

If you smile with your fear and sorrow

Smile, and maybe tomorrow

You’ll find that Life is still worthwhile

If you just smile..

Johnny Depp and me
January 15, 2011

Well, yes this is going to sound hilarious. But this is what I dreamed last night, after me posting a new post “Late In the Night” where I said I did not get any sleep, I finally succeeded in getting some sleep and even going away to that far off place where dreams live. And who said dreams are supposed to be serious and mysterious every time? Well, I can assure you that this particular dream of mine is hilarious. Well, at least, to me. =)

The dream went as follows:

Well,I do not remember how I entered the place, but it seemed as though I was there already. It was a pleasant place. Much like a painting. Greenery all around and nothing else except a chemist’s shop. I was already in the chemist’s shop and i called for the chemist as I looked around me just to realize that I was not alone. All of a sudden, two people were fighting. They were angry, very angry. I guess I almost instantly knew that they were undergoing anger management therapy. (=D) SO here ends the chemist shop dream and as I went out of the chemist’s shop, i was at an apartment and I saw Mad Hatter. (=P) Well, I went to take a closer look and I saw that it was Johnny Depp. (LOL) As I neared him, he started walking towards me and started talking to me. And I don’t remember the exact words, but he said something like ” Did you see Alice?” and I said something in reply, but he didn’t seem to care. So after that, I don’t know why, but we started playing. Hide and Seek. I went wherever Johnny went. ( I didn’t want to lose him :D) Finally, he removed a pocket book , which had Michael Jackson’s picture on it ( Wow) and he scribbled something on it. Then as I started reading it, though it did not make sense, I understood what he wrote. (hm…) He wrote “I found Alice” . And thats it. My mom waking me up and blah…i wanted to stay there a little longer. (duh…it was Johnny Depp!!) Well, Thats my dream. And believe me, it was hilarious to me. Just the fact that dreams can make me talk to Johnny Depp shows how powerful they are. What would be almost impossible was made possible in a few hours.

Well, I will return to that place again when the time is right. I will return to my dreams tonight.
