More about Me!

My friend Shreyasi’s post is the inspiration. Its not often that I think of these but they remain in my consciousness at all times. Just that every once in a while I puts words to wrap up the thought.
My best dream
That I am an astronaut (too late for that one!)
My worst dream
To hurt someone I love
I pine for
Solitude
I am uncomfortable with
Hypocrites
Closed minds
Negative gossip
Arrogance
Talking about money (specially when it’s mine!)
I am scared of
Heights
I enjoy
Innocence
Cool fresh breeze teasing my hair
Darjeeling tea
Tiramisu
Snow on the mountains
A good book
Silence
Driving with just the music for company
Listening to a friend
I dislike
Conformity
Lack of imagination
One-dimensional personalities/opinion
Sycophancy
Lies
Good friends think I am
'Sunshine'
Creative
Intelligent
Dreamer
Down to earth
Compassionate
Martyr (!)
Mother thinks am
Stubborn
Idealist
Dreamer
Romantic
(But she wouldn’t exchange me for anything!)
Father thinks am
Optimistic
Multi-directional
Difficult to fathom
Fighting for lost causes
(But he would always support my lost causes!)
I think
I am Confident
I am Generous
I am Trustworthy
I am careless with my money
I believe
Happiness is peace within
Love begins with oneself
There is no absolute truth except death
I hope
To see the world become safer for my children
The forests are preserved
To have a library (of my favourite books and music)
I wish to
Make a difference wherever I am
My greatest fear
To lose my sanity
I am awed by
Nature
Space
I love
Traveling
Sharing a good conversation
Watching kids at play
Holding hands
I draw energy from
Nature
Gyatri Mantra
Believe in God and myself
I want to die
In peace
My Epitaph if I die right now
Miles to go before I sleep

SB: you were the inspiration...obviously :)

I read your writings every few days, enjoyed this one, you have the ability, talent (?), to lay yourself bare in print. Hurts, doesn't it sometimes. Wanted you to know I still appreciate knowing what is going on with you from day to day.

Len....Thank you for your patience. You helped me find myself. I love you.

len howlett said...

Oh, and you have good taste in music, too. Makes my sleepless nights a little less tedious, other than when you make me so damned lonesome. What is that about, purpose, minimally traumatic revenge?

DreamCatcher said...

Len...I miss you.

len howlett said...

You'd be a fool not to. You know I'm 60 y.o. now? Painting, writing novels, where does it go from here? Want to give God a laugh? Make some plans.

DreamCatcher said...

I was a fool. Not anymore. You taught me a little rest life did. My God had many faces. One of them is yours. I hope you find peace.

len howlett said...

Maybe peace was not meant for me. Maybe I have to fight forever, I think I grew up late and I'm really about 25 y.o. I still keep expecting, without premeditation, the big change that will characterize my meaning and hence my life. I know one thing. I hated the direction things went over the last years of my life. Like Henry Miller said, "I am a fool with a can opener looking at the world, wondering where to begin." Crazy statement for an old man to adopt, huh? Meet you on the Dark Side of the Moon.

We are just two lost souls swimming in the fish bowl...year after year..

len howlett said...

Don't know if other went through. Just said communication via writing was always easy with you, human heartbeat through the netwaves. Again soon, if you like. Momo.

DreamCatcher said...

thank you.

len said...

If you write me again, make it Yahoo, old address. Just realized this stuff is public. We never were.

DreamCatcher said...

will do.
