Being alone

Language has created the word 'Loneliness' to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word 'Solitude' to express the glory of being alone.

Where can I find a man who has forgotten words?
I'd like to have a word with him.
-Chuang Tzu

From the book 'Married to Bhutan'


There are, in the heart of the vast Himalayas, some strange marketplaces where one can barter the whirlwind of life for infinite wisdom.

- Jetsun Milarepa, Tibetan yogi and poet

Wisdom is seasonal.

It blooms in spring and withers in autumn.
In summers, of course, it likes to be forgotten.
It pays occasional visits when you feel dead and rotten.
Wisdom in winters is drastically shortened.

For real!

When you get done with your virtual life
Make some time for the girl who wants to be your wife.
You will find her standing with a loving gaze,
At the outer edge of your cyber space.

This & That

This mountain, That mountain.
This river, That river.
This tree, That tree.
This flower, That flower.
This cloud, That cloud.
This season, That season.
This bird, That bird.

I love.

Silence and Storm

There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm.

- my Naga friend quotes Willa Cather.

Wine and Whirling

Bring the pure wine of love and freedom.
But sir, a tornado is coming.
More wine, we'll teach this storm
A thing or two about whirling.
- Rumi

Pest Control

By multiplying themselves at a persistent pace
and sucking me deep into their bacterial maze
Cockroaches have invaded my personal space!
