In the depths of my being, a strange certainty, deeper than reason, entirely animal in quality, filled me with terror. The same certainty which some beasts-sheep and rats feel before an earthquake. Awakening in me was the soul of the first men on Earth, such as it was before it became totally detached from the universe, when it still felt the truth directly, without the distorting influence of reason- The 'Boss', Zorba the Greek

Six Minutes

"He (my brother Lewis ) was told he had six minutes to get out and he would survive,
but he didn't manage and he was killed."

"They said they would give me dinner in six minutes.
It's been six minutes and it hasn't come yet. (Is there any jelly?)"

"I've been having the strangest dreams lately." *pause*

"I was told that when you die it happens in six minutes.
You lie down and in six minutes you die.
I lay down and in five minutes, I was gone.Just like that."
Who told you this?
"Aunt Dora."

"Take me home, I must go now."

Cha has had a healthy baby boy- last night at 3:40 am.,a couple hours after his own birthday. He is a father. HE IS A FATHER!!!
Number three () is engaged.
She is divorced.
Racoon thinks he is twenty three years old when he is actually twenty six going on twenty seven! Boy, was he shocked to be three years older in less than a minute!

Do we all think we are younger than what we are? Or are we older than we are?
Maybe, we are just old. Still living a child's life. That is the real joke.

Its been nearly a month since I have been home and I am ready to go back to Bombay and the uncertainity of it all. I love home but not being home is something I have begun to love as well.
Where and when will we find our middle path?
Glimpses of me
is what worries me.
Is that who I am now?
Circled eyes? and a constant frown?
Is the only way from here , down?

It's been a good six months.
