Summertime Sadness



When everything is just *this* far from perfect, when everything is just *this* far from complete, that feeling at the pit of the tummy and that blank space in the confines of the mind that leave you distracted and not in a good way but dreamy in definitely a good way. Is there a word for it? 

It is not as simple or exciting as "intriguing" but it is not as sad as "melancholic" either. 
 
I find it easy to lose myself in the world of the whimsical these days.... dreaming of summers by the beach, rainy days by the hearth, plenty of books and food and words and sitcoms. And cell phone signals.

It is probably because reality is stark, black and white and boring.
I'm not complaining, life IS good, I'm where I want to be.

But the heart always yearns for the stuff that quotes are made up of, dunnit?

  3. Sometimes though, I think we are more likely to live the quotes we read the more we look at them... ;) Go. Wander. Drive away.

  9. But come on, we all need that little extra bit of it all, right? Just like those quotes :)

  10. Whats stopping you from doing the stuff that quotes are made up of? :) Start small, maybe just a trip someplace near and spend all your time soaking in the awesomeness, minus the monotony of the everyday... and before you know it, your mind will be planning things you didn't think were possible (probable?).

    1. I know it sounds like an excuse but there never seems to be the right time or the place... But I know, I really need to get started somewhere or, like Yusra said, I will get addicted to it and before you know it I'll be one of those depressed creative types :O

  11. thats why they say "YEH DIL MAANGE MORE".. heart will always ask which is good i think because if it doesnot then we might become complacent in what we have and jsut get stuck there .. so even if we have what we want or we are where we want to be .. its good to want more .. :)

    take care and keep smiling

    1. Then it becomes a never ending cycle no? Wherein we get what we want and still want more? When do we know when to stop and just soak it all in and shut the heart up?

  12. We are never satisfied with what we have. We always want something more and something different. Ah! Life!

  13. This is a feel good post, because it is so true. It is good to escape into fancy sometimes, because that's how you can make them manifest in your reality. :) :)

    Blessed Be!

  14. Going over your last two posts, just made me check my mirror and want to ask are you reading my mind?
    Anxious may be the word.
