Married bliss

They say a picture speaks a thousand words. I do not know whether through this write- up I take away that magic, but I can’t stop myself from expressing the feelings that this picture evokes.

The picture itself is so simple but unleashes a plethora of thoughts. Two people sitting/lying down beside each other with their hands touching. Particularly noticeable are the wedding rings.

I feel this is the ultimate bliss in one’s life...just lying down besides one another…saying through this simple gesture that ‘I am with you’. This kind of companionship within the sanctity of marriage …what else can one wish for?

People may say that one becomes stronger by taking on the world alone... this may be true but the emotional strength one stands to gain by this assurance that there is someone with you is unsurpassed.

As I write this, I can’t help but feel that perhaps I destroy some magic created by the picture and my words are inadequate to match up to the strong feelings that the picture evokes.

My summer vacation

A long time since I took the time to write here.
Lots of things happening in my life right now…
I have changed my profile in my professional life. From being a faculty for 16 long years, I have entered the technical world in the form of a Tech Writer. I wouldn’t call this profile exactly fascinating but this has given me a definite advantage in understanding the IT world better.
This role has brought certain uncertainties with it…like gaps between projects…seems entirely new to be without work… some rest after 6 long years of working continuously. It’s a whole new world and I look forward to experimenting with newer roles and responsibilities. I am thankful for this chance of trying a profile that’s so divergent from my earlier one.
Let’s see what the new project brings in terms of role and responsibilities! The new project is likely to be available from the 1st of June.
I worked for 10 months in a Life-Sciences project and am now released from the project.
Meanwhile, let me enjoy this vacation…getting paid without working is enjoyable for sure!
