Instead of my usual 45 min swim in the pool, went cycling to Ranga Shankara to see if I could get a ticket to the sold-out production of an abridged “Romeo and Juliet”…and as usual, someone did have a spare ticket which I bought. The production was OK, the audience consisted of classmates of most of the cast so there was much enthusiasm…cycled back, grinning in delight at the steep downslope (you guessed it, going to Ranga Shankara is gruelling!)came home to a lovely home-made hot meal, the kind almost everyone who can’t cook dreams about…simple phulkas and dal can be SO satisfying!
Spoke to my daughter on Yahoo Messenger…she was speaking to her husband on the telephone….Imagine hearing the voice of someone in Israel through a telephone line to the U S and thence through a net connection to India…incredible technology! Amazing…but not as amazing as the fact that the same human brain which can bring this about also is capable of thoughts of child rape, terrorism and shocking violence….
Very often when friends and acquaintances go abroad, they lead very busy lives..LJ is a great way to follow happenings in their lives without disturbing them with email (which they might not reply to, either.) But sometimes the LJ’s also peter out…sad when you want to catch up with someone’s life and you just get the same old stale entry from a few months ago….keeping a journal is like keeping a diary and needs time invested in it…the difference is that allows others to silently keep track of what’s going on with you.
why would some of my entries be duplicated? I can’t understand..will this be duplicated? I think the first time I check after updating, it doesn’t show up, so I update it again…at least this is what I think happens as normally I am very sleepy when doing LJ stuff….
