“Lost” The TV Series… It’s Never Too Late!

I have heard of the TV Series about 4-5 years ago from my husband. At that time my babies were still what you call in ‘growing pains’  all four of them so I was a busy wreck too. I sometimes could not remember if I have eaten dinner or I had taken a shower the day before. He wanted to watch it with me but I just could not. Now, I love my husband and all but I just could not find the time, or spare time to watch something that was named “LOST”…I was already almost lost, and I was in my own home!

About four weeks ago, thanks to NETFLIX, my husband popped the question. He is the one who introduces me to all kinds of TV shows that he finds interesting, one of which was “The Story of Heisenberg”…which that’s the alias we say in front of the kids for “Breaking Bad”. I started watching with him the first two seasons but I bailed out because of school and I promised to resume it again on my own time. “Mad Men” is one TV series that I finished with him till the end because I just had to! I fell in love with Don Draper! Another one is Frank Underwood “House of Cards”, I don’t love him, but I have a fascination with his character.

But, moving on; my husband popped the question at the right time. When are we going to watch “Lost”? I has been a long time, we don’t have to wait season after season in Netflix, all of them are there. All six years! Well, then…Hello Jack! Or maybe Howdy, Sawyer….or Hey, Dude!

Oh my, my precious time! I’m hooked! I love some characters and I hate some, not really hate…almost hate, well not really. I could tell anybody on and on about John Locke…or how I’m fascinated with Mr. Eko, or how I look forward in every episode what new nickname is Sawyer going to come up with. From Captain Falafel… to Mr. Clean! How Michael and Jin has that kind of relationship…How I hated Shannon and Jin at first….oh my, as I said I could talk about my favorite characters forever.

Ok. Time to check my Neurobiology…I have to finish a report on Jean-Dominique Bauby about his amazing book The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. Till then….oh blog of mine! 🙂

I Hate you and I don’t even Know you

Having access and opportunities to engage with a large variety of people and cultures sometimes can be a bit over whelming. All the sights, sounds and smells can become unnerving and paralyzing.

Perhaps you come from a certain background where you are groomed to certain thoughts and behaviors that just don’t allow your mind to be open to things unlike yourself.

Too light, too dark, too loud, too quiet, too cheery, too somber, too mean, too positive, too skinny, too fat, too religious, not religious enough. The differences are vast. Clothing choices, foods that are consumed, musical interest, languages. All things that can build beauty but also can build hate….

The Reunion

An original song by my band- Clusters of Grey

The inspiration of this song came to me when I befriended a fellow musician through an online Music Group who collaborates, exchange ideas, give and obtain feedback about their songs…etc.
He and I became quite close and he told me about his personal experiences.
Now, that fellow is my husband and he’s my bandmate and we’ve been making music with 4 kids and the relationship is still growing with the help of some tasty Masalas (he’s Indian)! 🙂

The Comedy of Life

ACT I

“Give and it shall be given”—
You feed your soul.
But do you really do it,
Or you think you’re a fool?
“Love your neighbor, as yourself,”
You hear it everywhere,
When you don’t even smile at the lady
In the bus next to your chair!

“Redemption is near!”
You hear it on your radio.
Do you even bother to stop and think
When you die where will you go?
“Salvation, Salvation for everyone!”
Shouting in the streets as loud as they can.
You wonder Salvation from what,
Salvation from who?
Ahh, you think you’re still too young,
You still need to grow!

You work hard, you pay your bills;
You party when you have the chance!
Life is a-fleeting enjoy it as much as you can;
Your life is yours, so you thought—you don’t need anyone!
You’ve been hurt here and there. Heck, life is unfair;
You believe what you can, You do what you will!
Friends and Foes alike, you can’t trust them now a days,
You laugh the whole day, at night you look at your face!

Then one day you bent to tie your shoes,
Your back starts to strain, you thought you just need a boost!
Falling hairs, lines on your face, you’re getting tired,
Loneliness has sipped in through your heart and mind!
Still you say, Heck, what does it matter anyway,
Life is a-fleeting enjoy it as much as you can!
For maybe tomorrow or the next day you might be gone;
You’re happy to know that you lived and laughed—
You thought you were the envy of everyone!

ACT II

You wake up gasping for air,
Life was leaving you—no more cheer,
None beside you, no one to share—
How you wish, she was there, but you left her somewhere!
You start remembering while you’re clinging on a thread,
Did she say we had a SON, you wonder where would He be?
What kind of life he’s leading now,
God, let him be safe you hope and pray!

Then you started mumbling something,
You can’t figure out what?
Only your mind knows, only your heart feels
Cause that’s all you got!
You sucked more air, you trembled in fear,
A drop of tear fell from a dry eye as well!

You see darkness enveloping you
From the corner of the room,
Your fist was gripping tight on the bar of your bed,
Black shadows dancing like ghosts with eerie moves,
A cold wind blows from nowhere
Showing petals from a black rose!

The blackness started suffocating you,
You grasp for air but you might as well let go!
You’re still scared, you’re still hanging on—
Your mind, your heart—
All your senses felt like it’s going to blow!
You draw your last breath—you draw your last straw!
