~ The curious explorer in me is slowly waking up. She is looking around at the web that has entangled her, all the while she was dormant. She is struck by the urge to unentangle herself and go right out there into the unknown. She wants to explore, in her own little ways. Yay to that!!
~ It is awesome to explore a new city all by yourself and discover things. Like I found a whole book lover’s paradise on Church Street and Brigade Road this weekend. And yes, I’m definitely going back there again! It feels good to finally have ticked off some places on the must-visit places suggested by wellwishers – Cauvery Emporium, Blossoms and Magazines.
~ It feels fantastic when you experience the serendipituous finding of 3 books you have looked for all over, at a place you least expected. I fell in love with the old-world charm of Robert James Waller’s writing after reading The Bridges Of Madison County and A Thousand Country Roads, and have been looking for his other books since 2008. Imagine my surprise when I casually enquired about them at Blossoms, and found 3!! Too happy to have with me now – Puerto Vallarta Squeeze, Slow Waltz In Cedar Bend and Border Music – all by the author I can strangely relate to and know exactly what he is saying. And if you haven’t guessed it by now, Slow Waltz In Cedar Bend is already 85% read.
~ Bibliophiles, book conversations, the smell of old books, shelves stacked to overflowing with books – probably will never fail to make me happy.
~ Craziness comes in different forms. The better half gets up at 3 AM to check out who won in the last FIFA match. I would have done the same to read the last few pages of a book. And the family calls us both crazy.
That’s that for now, people! Will be back soon! 🙂
Till then, enjoy this:
