C’est la vie ! This is Life !

These kind of things keep happening to me all the time!

I do not know quite what prompted my friend Nandu to post this poignant picture on his Facebook page today, but this fits in quite nicely with my earlier LBC post on Out Of Sight Out Of Mind.

I only wish that I had had access to it before I published my post.

that is life

    Here we go again – your favourite “S” word ! Just read your blog on “Out of sight …” Shakespeare wrote in one of his plays “a mote in the minds eye ” ( suggesting that a worrisome thought pricks the mind as a mote – a speck of dust – would irritate the physical eye – suggesting that the mind has an “eye” , not just the physical one . Perhaps the heart has one too !

    Nandu, Ramana: Am I tearful, or am I tearful? The most evocative depiction of livelong love. Both in romance and in friendship.

    Well……it’s an interesting silhouette, but forgive me for saying it, it’s not exactly what you might call cheerful now, is it? I come over here to lighten up and I get this? I’m out of here!

    i don’t know how i feel about that.
    i know the circle of life for all living things.
    it’s just in the knowing that i am lost.

    Real life story, mind you my version has no headstones. I want to be scattered to the four winds.

      Grannymar, I know I irritate the hell out of you. Not intentionally. So please do forgive me for saying in response: Can’t you see the metaphor? Which ever way we’ll, eventually, wither, with or without a headstone: Some of us leave others behind, patient in their mourning, and then – look at number six – for eternal bliss in being reunited. I’d like to repeat what I said in another comment today: The sentiment does not only relate to ‘romantic’ relationships, most certainly to friendships too.

        Ursula : Yes it is a metaphor . ( We ) Hindus cremate and scatter / immerse the ashes ; no tombstones , graves or any form of “real estate” in death !

    • So will I most assuredly be.

  7. What a great picture! It’s visual poetry.

  8. It’s a great picture and really makes one think. Kind of depressing also but that part I’m trying not to think about.
