This is a repost of one of my earlier posts. I am doing this because this is what I have been feeling off late. If you read this to the end tell me please if you ever feel this way.

An Escaping Ambition

Last night a silent whisper woke me up from my slumber. Out of the corner of my sleep filled eyes I saw a shadow trying to tip toe its way out of my room. Perplexed and still delirious I called out, “Who are you and where are you heading to?”

On hearing my voice the shadow stopped and stood with its head bowed. When I repeated my question, the shadow as if imploring me said “Sir I am a small ambition who lived in your eyes since ages and I was now leaving.” This shocked me and I could not do anything but ask “Why my old friend. What grave inconvenience could have I caused you which made you break this old relationship and leave?” As if I had embarrassed the shadow, it spoke meekly. “Sir, I have been with you as long as I could remember. You gave me birth and you brought me up. You nursed me in your heart. You gave me a place in your eyes and a place in your vision. You catered for me in your plans and you accommodated me in your sleep. Still after all these years and all this work I remained a black shadow. I could never be a reality and come and stand in front of you. I have hurt you, pained you and I do not want to do this anymore. I was leaving so you could live in peace.”

I was startled. My eyes suddenly felt heavy, as if something was filling them up. Tears maybe but I didn’t know. I was at a complete loss of words. It was as if someone had hidden all my words from me. I could sense them and see them as stars twinkling around me but as soon as I reached out with my hand to touch them they vanished with a pop like magic and the more I strained my eyes to follow the crisscrossed trajectory of these flying words the heavier my eyes became. I didn’t know what to say to this black shadow which now stood so humbly with its head bowed and arms dropped down to its sides. Perhaps an era or maybe a lifetime later I asked again – “If this is true my friend then why leave so quietly? Why not tell me and shake hands and leave? Why leave like a thief, as if you have something to hide or someone to hide from. Surely it can not be me. I have loved you and as you said, treasured you. Why then leave without a final hug or so much so as a handshake? Is our bond so weak that you can simply shrug it off and walk away?”

As if possible the shadow sank a few feet in the ground. It suddenly appeared smaller and weaker. With a sigh the shadow replied, “I was not alone in your eyes sir. A small hope lives right next to me. She is not very strong. She would not have survived if she knew I was leaving. She would have cried and insisted on coming along with me and had that happened, you sir would have been left all alone. I never intended that to happen. Farewell sir and please take good care of that hope. If anything were to happen to her you would be all alone.”

A sudden noise outside my room woke me up. I think I was dreaming. Yes it probably was a dream. Shattered pieces of a broken ambition still sting my eyes sometimes. A small hope still cries somewhere within sometimes.

Drums rolling.............
Horns beating...................
Naked chics dancing.................sigh I wish!

I have hit what is often termed as the writer's block. I am asbolutely blank, have no idea about what to write now and am almost about to even give up thinking.

This evening while walking back from the office I was so engorssed with my thoughts for my blog that I was half expecting for an idea to fall straight from the sky and hit me on the head

and it did!

Only it missed my head by an inch and landed on my shoulder and it did not take me more than a moment to realize that it was actually the byproduct produced by a pigeons very bad digestive system. Though on second thoughts it could have been the same pigeon I had kindly kicked (lol kindly kicked!) a few moments ago in the town center when it insisted on picking on my shoes thinking them to be some kind of food. I am sure I noticed an evil glim of resentment in its eyes at that time and I am also convinced I did notice a flash of anger and a strong desire for revenge burning in there.

Yup the more I think about it the more I am convinced it was the same vile creature. Evil bird grrrrr! Wait till I buy my gun! Grrrr!'

Right so by this time you should be thoroughly disgusted with my inner thoughts. If you aren't, give me a few more posts and I promise to have you disgusted sometime soon!

Grin!
So passing over pigeon droppings and my lack of ideas for writings, by the way why the heck am I cribbing? When I can write so much on a pigeon dropping I should be able to come up with something half as amusing at least right?

Well sadly I couldnt. So what I decided was to channel my modest literary prowess to an arena which I absolutely love - Movies! Yes I am a big movie buff. In fact I have one of those unlimited movie cards for a chain of cinemas and there are weekends when I watch three movies one movie after the other continuously on the same day. Yes yes I know...what a loser! sigh!

Anyways back to the topic on hand so I am a big movie buff and you know what puts me off? The sites that do the movie reviews. I mean over the years I have made a kind of a mantra, I read reviews of a movie over a site and assume the exact "opposite". So I thought to myself that as seemingly impossible as it may sound there must be at least few more jerkheads like yours truly who enjoy a particular class or genre or type of movies. Who have their own taste and no reliable movie site to turn to for an honest opinion about movies.

And hence this was born.
What?
This!
What!!?
This this!
What!?
Oofff THIS!!!!

THIS WHAT!

This -> http://john-on-movies.blogspot.com

This is my very own site for movie reviews. I promise to review the movies as I watch them and I promise to only write nothing but absolute truth! I have already published my first review on this site. I would urge you to please do check out the review and tell me if I am right about the movie or wrong. If you could blogroll this blog it would certainly help all the psychos, idiotic, nerdy, geeky and absolutely miserable excuses for human lives such as yours truly to make up their mind about which movie to watch first. Of course we would watch all the movies anyways it is only a matter of which one to watch NOW! ;)

Best,
J
