The grey edges.

Finished a book by Paulo Coelho, ( which incidentally bore an uncanny resemblance to another one I'd read ages ago by someone else) Somehow these "life changing books" really go way over my head, never could understand the philosophical discussions they have. Somehow I've not been very comfortable with the clear cut demarcations of good and evil, devil and angel, heaven and hell. Guess the grey's and their analysis appeal much more to me.. not that it gets me any answers!

Small things

So what are the things that make me happy or that make me sad? Was thinking about that today while fretting and fuming at something at work... and realised, that it was usually the small things which made all the difference. The little mail of appreciation, the 10 minutes of uproar with friends, the discovery of a chore done for me already.. and yes also on the flip side, the tiny glance of disapproval, the bus i missed..

It always feels good to meet them, to laugh with them, to catch up , to get nostalgic.. its also feels good to make new ones .. now increasingly rarely for some reason.

It has been good to come to a new land and see new things, but it has also been great to see that its a place with some reassuring conections to the past :)
