If it’s autumn or winter where you live, what are you most looking forward to doing next summer? If it’s spring or summer where you are, what has been the highlight of the season so far for you?
It is summer where I live, we are still waiting for real summer, it hasn’t shown up yet. One warm day is followed by several cold wet days. Today it’s sunny, the wind is strong and cold, I’m not sure if we will have summer. Today is the 30th June, if I didn’t know the date and month, I’d think it is fall. I haven’t stopped raising the heat in my house.
I am really looking forward to summer, the difference is I may want it but summer may not oblige me.
Although I have only been negative so far, there is a very positive side to these cool temperatures we’re are having.It is the month of fasting, where we are not allowed to eat or drink for nineteen hours, the cool weather helps, we are not thirsty, at least I am not. It is a big plus for me. Today is the 13th day of Ramadan, I haven’t felt thirsty all these days, I do feel hungry for a few minutes then I’m okay.
I must say cool summer is very helpful for those who are fasting. I’m getting a lot of benefit because of it. I know I must not complain.
“Follow your inner moonlight; don’t hide the madness.” Allen Ginsberg
Do you follow Ginsberg’s advice– in your writing and/or in your every day life?
If I follow my inner moonlight including don’t hide the madness as suggested by Ginsberg, I cannot be sure how people who see me will think. Most of the time I try to hide that inner madness to avoid being called a lunatic. I saw some people who do not hesitate to show their madness and are branded by society to stay away from such a person.
Certain amount of inner madness if controlled can benefit some, others will turn their back and still others will give the evil look.
When we are in public lot of things happen we do not like, but we take a deep breath and move on. It happened yesterday to me I went to see the sales lady from whom I bought the furniture, it was not the right one so I returned it, they received the furniture five days ago but as of yesterday I wasn’t given the refund.
I went to the store and found out she was on her lunch break for an hour, I walked around to see how I could spend my time for that hour, while walking I saw her coming, she quickly hid her face with a piece of paper, I stopped and called her name, she behaved normally, she didn’t know I had seen her trying to hide her face. If I had used my inner madness in that mall I knew it wouldn’t gain any friends for me instead I spoke to her as if nothing out of the ordinary had taken place.
It was decision time for me,I made up my mind not to buy anything from her, this I thought was the best way to deal with my inner madness.
