    What you’re saying, I suppose is something like this: You can do more than you think you can do. Yes? 🙂

    Is This the Life I Wanted?

      Dear Lisa! Thank you! I wrote my first ever haiku on Feb 1 :-). It has been a big discovery for me because I had no idea I’d love doing it so much! (I’ve been enjoying your posts very much!)

    I see that i am perhaps the only Indian friend of yours commenting here 🙂 But loved this one. Anything positive about life and its challenges grabs my eyeballs in an instant. The image reminds me of the young boys who jump from a cliff into the waters of Narmada in Jabalpur for a fee from tourists. they sure know how to monetise a game 😀

      Zephyr, you’ve no idea how much I appreciate your visits. My country folk rarely come over and comment. The gratifying part is I know for a fact that all my friends read what I write and prefer to either pop up on IM chat or phone to talk, rather than come here and comment. 🙂

      I’ve seen young boys enjoying themselves in the south. Monetizing it – well, we must remember that we have the best “businessmen” in the business :D. I could never bring myself to pay a child to jump off a cliff for fun, but different strokes for different folks!
