i don't know what to write about lately. or even what the point of writing is. why? why do i share private thoughts with perfect strangers? allow myself to be judged? misunderstood? what does this do for me?
i'm a bit creeped out that i just put my shit out there without too much self editing. and i'm shy in person.
i think about that sometimes. blogging is a strange thing.
i have always loved writing. and what is the point of writing if no one reads what you write? it's like playing music on your futon. i have more fun sharing music with others, both playing with & for.
or dancing alone.
there's NOTHING wrong with that. i have very serious bollywood routines memorized that few will be allowed to participate in or view. HOWEVER i would WAY rather have a partner to dance with. ahh...my salsa days are very fond memories.
i don't want to cook a killer meal & eat it alone.
the point is this. if it can not be shared, it is not as much fun.
enjoy this clip. it's my private dance.
and probably more than a billion other's too.
on top of a train the film is called dil se (from the heart) starring shahrukh khan
& manisha koirala 2 of india's finest. this a.r. rahman song is pure CLASSIC.
जिनके सर हो इश्क़ की छांव
पावों के नीचे जन्नत होगी
चल छैयां छैयां, छैयां छैयां,
छैयां छैयां, छैयां छैयां
गुलपोश कभी इतरायें कहीं,
मह्के तो नज़र आ जाये कहीं
तावीज़ बनाके पहनूं उसे,
आयत की तरह मिल जाये कहीं
Chaiyya Chaiyya-(walk in shade)
Whose head is in the shade of love, heaven is under his feet.
Walk in the shade, remain in the shade,
remain in the shade, remain in the shade.
The flower-wearer walks around self-assured, I can spot him by the scent,
I can wear him like an amulet, sometime I encounter him as a hymn.
Like the songs of Mirabai or works of several sufi poets, this song is dvayashraya kavya, it can be interpreted in two ways; as a worldly love song, or a song for the beloved lord. -wiki-
