The Mind of a Married Man (Part 4)

matching ambitions & career goals
when to do this and when to say - family first.
i never really gave it much thought when i was single.
i'm sure she felt the same way.
it's so different now.
suddenly i cannot think of being home for a month and not doing anything (socially acceptably) constructive.
there is nothing like a "between jobs" break now

conversely... being HI-DINKs ... the situation should be reversed.
I did some p-wondering and an interim point of view was that we loved our "independent" financial security. so suddenly if I was dependent on her... hmmm .. who can tell! I know she'll take care of me - the house husband!
OK - for a minute lets just say that my ego was on the back-burner.... what'd happen if i wanted to just say - opt out of the current work assignment and do a bit of photography... I think, thought, thunked too.... but then there are other things to consider as well.

i wonder how the others did it...

family is always first... but when you're just out of college... starting out on a career path, it becomes self centric to the extent that you wouldn't mind being away from the family or well mebbe something like do i need to spend X number of hours wid da folks!

Today - at 31 - after marriage - I think differently - it's a need.. a realization that family is all that really matters in the end!

If life was a Hollywood film... the action would be intense,
It's actually closer to Bollywood... with the same people and the same stories.

Giving up on real life opportunities to create the iconic twists, the hallmark of great cinema and it's storytellers. If every story had the same ending, how would one imagine the what-ifs of life?

Some stories come out best when they start with an ending. It makes for more poignant stories when you deal with certain characters. There is an element of drama on an unfulfilled love story or unrequited love too.

The mundane is never enough for some of us. The happily ever after is an ending from the fairytales of the brothers Grimm.

The piano man

Sitting bored in the mall when we could be shopping for her gift. The lady is on an official call, so I'm sitting by the wayside observing the man in the centre of the atrium. He's playing a piano. Hence the name - piano manHe's playing a melody oblivious to the sea of humanity around him. No mean task as it is. His tunes run a plethora of melody with no fixed agenda as it is. He looks around hoping someone would make a request - but the crowd treats him like they would an invisible entity. There's pain in the back of his mind and heart. Nothing hurts an artiste more than invisibility. He never knew he'd end up like this playing the walking melody to thousands. His music had always been planned on the good graces of melody with people singing in chorus.
That things did not go as planned, well no surprise there. Circumstance might have been fortuitous had he been willing to bend over. Ever the true blooded artiste, he'd chosen the path less traveled.Now the wai…
