for old times sake

It's nine pm. The bottle of jacobs creek chardonnay,2006 vintage is lying on the table - half full. Arnold is strutting his stuff on the telly asking the man for his clothes and his bike. The shades are a bonus.
John connor tells tod that the lady is not his mother and drives off... The rest is history!!
This is not about the women who have been in my life, as keshi requested. It's about how our experiences shape our thinking and our lives. I'm not gonna generalize. Lets just stick to me since i'm the villain of the piece.
So i'm the sum total of all that has passed before me. I hope it will take me as far as the next pitstop. There i will gather the troops again. It's like a video game and the next level has its own challenges..
But it always feels like deja vu.Then the next level is upon me.
We all do what we are programmed to do. So a terminator terminates. Any question to the obverse is replied to with a succinct why..
I'm a learner. Every twist and turn taught me a few plays of the hand till -the poker player arrived. James was not always the bond. He was normal once....
... But something about life bores me.

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…

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.

We had a mixed crowd and more …
