Epiphany.

Some of you, dear readers would recall a certain Greek scholar, who was struck by a great realisation, as he dipped into a warm bath, that he ran around the streets naked, yelling, “Eureka, eureka.”

I always thought the man must have been mad. Till today. When I experienced the feeling for myself.

No, don’t get me wrong please. I’m not Greek, much less a scholar, and well, I am not guilty of practising any form of nudism. However, I have been struck by a realisation with great force. I’ve just had what is known as an epiphany.

Well, after I had posted some thoughts born of deep despair and gloom in my last post, my blogger friend, Corinne wrote something that hit with the intensity of a thunderbolt. I was struck speechless and realised the mistake that I had been making.

Thanks Corinne! You’re a wonder! :) And you’re absolutely right. I can’t tell you how touched I am by your gesture.

P.S. Another quote from Richard Bach:

Can miles truly separate you from friends... If you want to be with someone you love, aren't you already there?

hey sumit. I like the way you write. I havent checked out many of your posts.. but as they say.. a pinch is enough to taste..

I want to be your die-hard follower too.. only there is some server problem with blogger right now, it is "unable to handle my request" *rolling eyes* and I have to come back to follow you.. :D sounds creepy na..

Keep writing. I had so much fun reading it. I love using lots of quotes too.. you can find them all over my other posts.. And Bach.. swoon..sigh..

I told ya we were going to be blogger friends. :)

Have fun.

Thanks Rohini! Bach happens to be one of my fav authors. :)

Of course, I like creepy ones like Stephen King too, so quite a diverse choice there.

I read your post, then i read Corinne's, then again i came back and read yours :)
Bull's eye!
If i can say, which btw i've written as a comment in corinne's post as well that i so completely relate with this write-up, it wont be a cliche'd line.
I do have the exact similarity at my end, the only difference being that "he" one day out of the blue moon realised that this indeed is love :)
So buddy, i am a very positive and a strong believer "in the power of thoughts"...it works miracles.
I never in my wildest dreams have thought that i could do certain things but here i am happily in love with my soulmate.
Believe in yourself and also have a belief that what you believe is true, and will come true if not now may be later, there are some fine tunings still left, which needs to be done :)
Best luck pal and keep rocking and have faith...in you and everything else.
Much love and prayers!
Rashmi :)
