Day 409

I took a day off from work today. And i just crashed in to bed after work yesterday. Once again, yesterday, i came close to being a negotiator at work. Fortunately, my manager took over and handled the situation. May god bless his soul. I seriously wonder, why do people indulge in fighting over the most stupidest of issues ? Work was, as usual, piling up. But i left on time. Drove back home with one of the colleagues who had indulged in the fight and just heard the colleague's side of story. Anyways, i came home, watched some TV serials on the PC and slept. I woke up twice, once at 11 PM and once at 2:30 AM in the hope that i upload the blog, but, as the saying goes, the spirit was willing but the flesh was weak. I eventually got up early, at 6:30 and was again sorting out work issues. This time, it ranged on a variety of issues, Computer password not functioning, work allocation, 5 people not turned up for work and had to coordinate to ensure they come to work. Not coming to work with the most standard reason - not feeling well. Bloody hell not feeling well. Anyways, i didnt want to savor a bad mood so i switched off.
You may wonder why i took day off from work today ? Well, this day, in 2006, my dad left for heavenly abode. And i never go to work because this is one day i would like to spend in solitude. As the tradition has been going for the last 4 odd years, we visit the family temple and offer prayers for dad's soul to rest in peace and then we go to his favorite restaurant to have some nice early lunch / early dinner and think and talk about the days of past.
After that mum decided to shop for some towels and bed sheets so helped mum with that. Came home in the afternoon and surfed the net for a while. Then had a nice afternoon siesta. Afternoon siesta on a nice cold winter afternoon is an awesome thing.
One more day at work tomorrow and weekend off.
 Hopefully there will be no untoward incidences at work and the day will go smooth. These last few days, i dont need any more stress than usual.

And as the tradition goes, another very beautiful ode for my sweet heart... Love you loads...


The keen stars were twinkling,
And the fair moon was rising among them,
Dear loved one,
The guitar was tinkling,
But the notes were not sweet till you sung them
Again.

As the moon's soft splendour
Over the faint cold starlight of Heaven
Is thrown,
So your voice most tender
To the strings without soul had then given
Its own.

The stars will awaken,
Though the moon sleep a full hour later
To-night;
No leaf will be shaken
Whilst the dews of your melody scatter
Delight.

Though the sound overpowers,
Sing again, with your dear voice revealing
A tone
Of some world far from ours,
Where music and moonlight and feeling
Are one.
