Both Sides Now – Joni Mitchell

Recently I heard this beautiful song and liked its lyrics very much, that I thought I will post it – in case somebody is interested!

Lyrics: Both Sides Now

Bows and flows of the angel hair
and ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere
I’ve looked at clouds that way

But now they only block the sun
They rain and snow on everyone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way

I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It’s cloud illusions I recall
I really don’t know clouds at all

Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels
The dizzy dancing way you feel
As every fairy tale comes real
I’ve looked at love that way

But now it’s just another show
You leave’em laughing when you go
and if you care, don’t let them know
Dont’t give yourself away

I’ve looked at love from both sides now
From give and take, and still somehow
It’s love’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know love at all

Tears and fears and feeling proud
To say “I love you” right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
I’ve looked at life that way

Oh but now old friends are acting strange
They shake their heads, they say I’ve changed
Well something’s lost but something’s gained
In living every day

I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From WIN and LOSE and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life at all

I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
Its’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life at all

If you want to listen (and see as well), here’s the YOUTUBE link!
Enjoy this beautiful song…

God bless the creativity of 60/70’s!

One thing would always be true – I really don’t know life at all!

Introspection

Introspection

If you want to know more about being, we don’t need to go elsewhere.
Its with us.. within us.
We need to think, introspect and we can see!

A poem that touched me!

If the providence is filled with grief,
Whom can you blame?

Son of a man is subject to whims of fate in this world
It’s nobody’s fault!

Oh Death, Thank you!

Many (so far including me) do not appreciate death as just another stop in the eternal journey of soul.

Recently, I have seen two deaths: of a well respected, well principled man, and of a dog whom I used to care.

Yes, these two incidents have humbled me to a great extent.

I am glad that my daughter too appreciates these things in her own way and cares for people and animals. We all are following our respective journey, so we need to be little more empathetic about our surrounding. This if we all learn to some extent, then life would become more lively!

Thank you, oh..death, and great souls, for making me realize these subtle things about life!

The Treehouse of Adulthood – By Grant Snider

Enjoy this very unique and interesting depiction of adulthood by ‘Grant Snider’!

The Treehouse of Adulthood
-By Grant Snider

This comic originally ran about a year ago and can be found on this blog in its original form. I decided to update it with color, mainly because I thought the pond creature should have green tentacles and the in-laws lurking inside the tree should have yellow eyes. Incidentally, my mother-in-law is visiting this weekend. As usual, this is available for purchase as an 11″x17″ poster (email me at gsnider11@gmail.com) so you can put it up in your cubicle of employment or useless hobby zone and eventually stash it in some closet with your exercise equipment.
