WPC: Temporary

The Daily Post offers prompts for photo challenges which are temporary in nature as a new prompt is provided each week. Because of the fleeting evanescent nature of time I couldn’t complete the challenge in the allotted time span. But then again after a lifetime of being punctual and on the dot (and even before the dot at several occasions) I am enjoying the freedom of being late . And wonder of wonders – the world around doesn’t actually instantly burst into indignant protesting smithereens (honestly it continues to surprise me that no such things happens if I am late or even absent :D) 😉

So a few selected visuals of all things temporary – hope you like 🙂

Food is so temporary isnt it? Just lasts a mealtime – sometimes not even that 😉

Dance

The raibeshe dancers create a temporary aesthetic formation. If you like to see more of these amazing folk dancers from West Bengal click here You won’t be disappointed, I am quite sure.

So what else is temporary?

FallThe brilliant colors of fall imported from Germany 🙂

Cheers to you from India Chinese rose Have a super weekend!

Don’t forget to leave me your favorite and what would be your idea of temporary. Thanks for visiting.

Just 4 Fun # 63

SuprabhatSuprabhat or Good morning. I thought this was too beautiful not to share – what do you think?

The Missing Goat!?

It all started one lazy Sunday afternoon
in a small town near Toronto in Canada.

Two school-going friends had a crazy idea.

They rounded up three goats from the neighborhood and painted the numbers
1, 2 and 4 on their sides.

That night they let the goats loose
inside their school building.

The next morning,
when the authorities entered the school,
they could smell something was wrong.

They soon saw goat droppings
on the stairs and near the entrance
and realized that some goats had
entered the building.

A search was immediately launched
and very soon, the three goats were found.

But the authorities were worried,
where was goat No. 3?

They spent the rest of the day
looking for goat No.3.

The school declared classes off for the students for the rest of the day.

The teachers, helpers, guards,
canteen staffs, boys were all busy
looking for the goat No. 3,
which, of course, was never found.

Simply because
it did not exist.

Those among us who in spite of having
a good life are always feeling a
“lack of fulfillment”
are actually looking for the elusive,
missing, non-existent
Goat No.3.

Whatever the area of complaint or dissatisfaction, relationship,
job-satisfaction, finance, achievements, ……
An absence of something
is always larger than  the
presence of many other things.

Let’s Stop worrying about goat No.3
n enjoy the life…
Life would be so much happier
without the worries….😊

Have a blessed  Day….!!!

And don’t let the non existent imaginary goat number 3 waste your time and happiness.
Enjoy life with what you have.

One Step at a Time

 Words 100

Top floor! She panicked. Never in a thousand years would she manage to reach her goal.

She spied a signage and sighed in relief. Ah the lift!

She hurried to join the tail end of a long winding queue.

The queue behind grew longer and yet she didn’t move an inch.

Restless and impatient, she chaffed at the wait.

“Want to jump queue?” A voice whispered temptingly.

“How? I am new with no resources.”

“Fresh and resource full.” He leered lasciviously.

No time and miles to go.

Decision made she stepped out of the queue and headed for the stairs.

WPC: Sneak Peek

Hello everyone! How have you been? Sorry to have been MIA – too many things happening. Pollution levels haven’t helped and I seem to be floundering in a haze of unformed fleeting thoughts and ideas. And there is no light at the end of the tunnel. Don’t believe me? Have a look.

Although I have to admit this is my personal favorite. Anyway I seem to be rambling more than usual. I intended to post some pictures related to last week’s Daily Post’s challenge Peek. But then I guess these gave you a peek into my mind 😀 But if you are still up to it, here are the ones that I had originally intended to post but never got the time to do so.

KidAren’t we all like the little boy peeking curiously at the world around us, trying to make sense and often unsuccessfully.
