Staring at the ceiling
Making friends with shadows on my wall
Hearing voices telling me
That I should get some sleep
Because tomorrow might be good for something "
I don't know how many of you have heard this song but its so apt in my situation. Its been playing in my head like a record gone bad. I wonder how a particular song or a movie manages to automatically play itself in your head for hours.
Well as you might know if you follow me on facebook that i did manage to find my way to colors last evening. It gave me immense pleasure to know that I still had it in me. Do any of you ever wonder, because I use to when i was working, that we spend most of our time on things which require so much of our time and effort when we can actually spend half or none of it at all, if we were to do what we are really gifted with. For example i always thought some of my friends were so good looking and had such a lack of communication skills, they would just be better off as models. And then there were some, who were so good at PR that they could just start their own talk shows. I on the other hand was good with my hand, limited to paints and clay, because i still suck at cooking. I was stuck in a 10 hour job, which sucked my energy and enthusiasm for life. Of course on weekends or on drunk sprees I would get out my colors and be the crazy artist I always am.
Last night I celebrated the completion of my first painting in Germany with my favorite weihenstephaner beer, because of which I'll have to do an extra round in the gym today, I get guilt pangs otherwise. And I saw the movie "Pulp fiction". It struck no chord with me and i wondered how come all these movies get nominated for Oscars. This is the second Oscar movie after watching "The Graduate", that made no sense to me. So, please if you are reading this, suggest some good movies and we shall debate further.
