"For you, a thousand times over..."

It was only a smile nothing more. It did not make everything alright. It did not make anything alright. Only a smile. A tiny thing. A leaf in the woods, shaking in the wake of a startled bird's flight. But I'll take it. With open arms. Because when spring comes, it melts the snow one flake at a time, and maybe I just witnessed the first flake melting....

For who have read it, they would remember these lines from The Kite Runner, and for those who have not read it (I doubt if that is going to be a large number anyway) I would recommend reading this brilliantly written tale of human relationships and emotions.

I am not a good book reader, and I started this book really long time back but just could not finish it for some reason or the other... and today when I read the last 50 pages, I felt relieved to say the least...

Will go back to the Essential Calvin and Hobbes now, which I might have read atleast 15 times over if not a thousand times over !

oh and enjoy a picture preview of my trip to Utah the last weekend, below...

  8. BTW, was tinkering with blogspot widgets today. Created a "Making a difference" widget modeled after yours. See if you like the idea (not the execution), then something like a "widget adder" can be placed on Sankalp site.
