In response to daily prompt : Expect
It’s October, the wind reminds us it’s the beginning of Autumn, therefore no more can we expect, warm sunny days, but cold and high winds are in our future. In a way it’s understandable, Nature has a job to do, such as preparing us for Winter, the first thing is to get rid of the leaves of trees, the high wind takes care of this job.
Home owners will get ready with their rakes to clear the ground, slowly the grass will turn yellow and our job of mowing will take a break.
We cannot sit still and say, ‘I’m glad I don’t have to take care of my lawn.’
We have to look forward to snow and lots of it, shoveling the snow off our driveway, front and back steps will replace mowing and raking.
Some Winters I hope, believe and imagine , it will give us a break from snow, but as the days go by, we realize, we cannot change anything by imagining!
Imagine that tomorrow,all your duties and obligations evaporate for the day all to yourself, to do anything you please. What type of fun activities would make your day?
From August eleventh to eighteenth, my daughter and I went for a vacation to Montreal, lovingly called “La belle province” Montreal is the big city of La belle province ‘Quebec.’
We had a great time walking, riding the train to the shopping centre, eating junk food to our heart’s content. There was no one to warn us, to eat healthy, eat unhealthy was the go of the day.
Then we watched some live tennis matches, even here we ate junk food. Now we are back home thinking about the fabulous days we had.
There was only one downside to these awesome days, our way back home, the airplane ride was awful, although we bought the tickets, they gave us the worst possible seats. When we announced we should get seats so we could sit together, we were told we’d have to pay thirty dollars per person to get the privilege to sit together. Well we had to pay the thirty dollars to move. The Airlines I mean our most favorite airlines is making us pay to check our baggage. Before we paid for the second bag the first was free. Now it is necessary for them to make more money and who pays, we the passengers.
Now that I have related the awesome and the sad story, I’ll get to where I’m offered a day all to myself. do anything I like, I’ll have most fun if I get the freedom to make a large sign why no one should travel by our awesome airlines, the reason , they do not feed you, they sell food, they make us pay for seats which by right we should get. For heavens sake we bought the ticket why should we pay for seats as well.Then the baggage fees is getting higher.
This will give me untold fun!:)
The friendly, English-speaking Extraterrestrial you run into outside your house is asking you to recommend, the one book, movie or a song that explains what humans are all about. What do you pick?
I will pick a song. The singer is John Lennon. It begins with : “Imagine”.
Below is the video:
If your life were a movie what would its soundtrack be like? What songs, instrumental pieces, and other sound effects would be featured on the official soundtrack album?
I wish everyone’s life is a movie, however I’d like to delete sad, hostile and everything that causes anxiety out of the movie.
If my life was a movie, it will be filled with laughter, songs from little kids, music and everything that gives us joy.
There will be a variety of music, the flute, horn, tabla, piano, drums, guitar,harmonium. These would be the instruments featured on the official soundtracks.
The following is my favorite song, it tells what makes me happy:
Tell us about your favorite way to get lost in a simple activity— running,chopping vegetables,folding laundry,whatever.What’s it like when you’re in the “Zone”?
Running, chopping vegetables, folding laundry, none of these activities are my favorite way of getting lost.
Listening to songs is my favorite pastime, they remind me of my childhood, whenever there was a wedding in town the bride’s family played different songs on the loudspeaker, the songs became my favorite and I sang along, it was something I loved doing, I would get lost in my thoughts and hoped the songs would never end.
When I’m by myself, I listen to Tagore songs on youtube, I imagine Tagore singing and telling us how we should spend our time. It feels nice to be able to sing along and forget about the unpleasant things happening in our day to day life.
My favourite is John Lennon’s song: “Imagine”
Imagine there’s no heaven
Imagine There’s No Hunger – Strawberry Fields – Central Park, NYC (Photo credit: asterix611)
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today
Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace
You, may say
I’m a dreamer ,but I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world
You, may say
I’m a dreamer,
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will live as one
This song speaks to me,in a way nothing else can.It has everything that tells me how to make the world a better place. The assortment of countries,possessions,greed,hunger, religions,all these are the problems of the world. Remove them and there will be peace and tranquility.
It’s my thought.
