Wings


A few random thoughts that occurred to me when the word “wings” came to my mind:

- The wings of change… I should say is quite apt with the way my life is going on right now. And I’m not talking about the minuscule changes or differences in my current lifestyle. These are copious changes both in my personal and as well as professional life. I’ll just leave it at that.

- Soaring to the heavens…What must it feel like to watch our dear earth from up there?

- From high up there I can see small boats bobbing away on the high waves sailing quietly on the far river below.

- To be able to get over the fear of height (yes, I’m scared of heights)

- Wings of freedom…moving out of our home and living by myself in a different city; of a little freedom and a little flight :) Although only for a brief period, but it did let my clipped wings grow and explore the unseen, unheard, and unsought. It’s a wholly different thing that I had to go through some terrible lonely moments, but I guess it was part of the deal!

- Angels!

- I want to take my parents on a vacation someplace outside the country (and actually let them
use their passports before it expires or before I renew it for another useless period).

- I
myself want to visit Rome, Egypt, and Paris (very soon, although I don’t know how soon or haven’t planned anything yet). I’ve read and seen sooo many many things enchanting about those places that my need to visit them is growing deeper and deeper by the day! Perhaps I'll use those wings someday!?! ;)

- This amazing song by
Roxette!

- Chasing butterflies, or rather butterflies chasing me. When I was much younger I was quite scared of butterflies and moths; I was even bitten by a scorpion once, and my little finger grew as big as my big toe and went pink in a matter of seconds. :| Phew! I still am scared of some creepy insects; I hate how unpredictable they can be!

This post is in response to the prompt at Sunday Scribblings. Not my greatest scribble, but I guess this should suffice for now, since I seem to be sharing this illness with CM.

PS: Congratulations to Liani @ SS on her book release!

Hi! I really enjoyed reading this - lots of bits and pieces put together like patchwork!

I'm answering your question here - we are definitely still trying to create our new website but we are having trouble finding someone who knows how to create an automatic linking-thing for us that will do what we want - who knew it could be so complicated!!

Aditi said...

hmm .. beautiful...a single word can be interpreted n so many different ways..

Devil Mood said...

Word association - that's good, allows us to be very creative and to link our thoughts with our inner logic.

Oh bitten by a scorpion, that must be scary! I've only been biten by scorpio(n)s metaphorically. ;)

Bongga Mom said...

I, too, enjoyed your different takes on the prompt. I like where the prompt sent you "flying" in different directions.

DevilM,

Yep. :) Yeah was bitten when I was 3 (or was it 4), but wasn't all that scary then, I didn't even know what bit me then. But thinking about it now, it is quite scary!

LOL, bitten by scorpio's? haha, they are interesting and intellectual people. I have a few interesting scorpion friends myself! :)
