an event, a trip and much more

I dont think I mentioned this before on my blog, but I am working on organizing a 5K run in June with my other Asha-Colorado friends. So if you are in any mood to donate some money to a really amazing cause (The motivation here lies in having fun with some responsibility, somewhat like having a designated driver on ure way to the bar), please do let me know. I dont wanna fill anyone's head with propaganda, watching CNN or FOX would give you enough material.

Visit http://5k.ashacolorado.org for more information.

Remember social change is fulfilling when you are involved in the process.

So get involved!

I was at my sister's place last weekend, for a quick getaway from this crazy colorado life ( crazy on the head). It was really an enriching experience to see my nephew grow this quick ( already 18 months old) A double edged sword i tell you, it also means that I am getting older. My sister has suddenly become this wise woman capable of cornering me in talks, or perhaps i stuttered aimlessly in the unknown. In any case it seemed surreal, but I just seemed further and further away from a life that I have so comfortably called my own. My parents seemed at a distance, my sister was a mother and I was for the very first time kind of reluctant to grow.
And then there was the backyard.

I promise you I shall never have a backyard if at all I get a house. It just seemed to be a honeypot for memories. I remembered from my times in backyards when I was a kid, at all my cousins places, at all our friends places. Plus you always have a eastman color home video that pops up from nowhere of kids playing in the backyard. All that just makes me sad. and I dont wanna be sad.

I played with my nephew in the lawn, with the sprinklers on and us running through the shots of water. For a minute I stood there and wondered, I have done this, a long long long time ago. But now I am no longer a kid. And I saw my sis and athimber stand at a distance, and we all looked so lonely, wanting to become kids once again.

I dont know whether I am making mountains out of mole hills as usual or its time's up, next show please. I just felt this weekend was more than just a getaway. It was the buzzer go off. an end of an era.

Surprisingly I havent been dreaming for a while now. I have been sleeping well, but I dont see any dreams. I could be stressed out. or probably I am living a dream.

I hope its the second.

yup..we all wanna be young again. We wanna be young to move away from the realities i guess.

its difficult for us to accept the fact that we are getting older and with that we have added resps.
