I stood there in front of the lions at Odeonsplatz and simply smiled, sang, whistled, laughed! Standing there again without a jacket – it was like a dream coming true. I looked to Leopold street and wanted to take a picture. Then I congratulated myself for deliberately leaving my camera and mobile phone. I shouldn’t have missed the enjoyment/beauty of that moment by clicking pictures.
I had been receiving reports from other parts of the country that the sun was spotted there and people in Munich were desperate to have a glimpse of ‘her’ (Sun is a lady in German). My emotions were running low – because of the prolonged winter and for the worry of sun having forgotten Munich ;) .
Now everything is just fine and I am as energetic as one can be. Without being able to run or jump-around I still feel a bit handicapped though.
Well, so the thing is I went to the book-shop. This is already April and I wanted to have my share of books. March was a good month in terms of reading – I finished Wuthering heights (it deserves an whole post for itself), How would you move Mt. Fuji, The parenting book (about random 10 of the 21 tricks) and one-fourth of “Emperor's New Mind”.
But I picked no book today. The book I had wanted to buy wasn’t available – I had given one hour’s thought before deciding to buy it or not. And finally when I decided to, the book is not there. NOT THERE!
So I almost picked a book which I want to give someone. But then I would read that book (again) and I cannot give it as new/fresh. So kept it down. That person deserves it fresh and I want to give it new! :) So, I’ll buy it just before I meet her.
And then I controlled my urge to buy some random book. I almost decided on Echolalias – but figured that it would be too philosophical for me and also I didn’t like the writing. (Too many brackets and quotes – (‘single quotes’, “double quotes”))
And then I walked in the sun for sometime and headed back home! :)
Signing off, Sands.
PS: Parents were angry at the English teacher, why? Because their children received a mere “C”. They said - “Our neighbours’ children have ‘C’ too but it’s fine, because they are ‘average’ children. But OUR child!?”.
PPS: Congrats to the smart fellow who landed in Google as an Intern. :)
PPPS: The post was meant to be a quickie…. but it just got long! :)
