Turn your lights on

My replica is a moon-girl.
Multilingual, educated, understanding & ... on her side visible.
Her moto; "I am not looking for happiness in life
I am looking for pleasure."
Overdrinks, over-smokes, over-trusts guys who play by the rules,
on her dark side.
If I was her Armstrong,
printing my foot-shape landing from my shuttle,
I would have introduced Edisson to her invisible side.
Alas, I studied the wrong subject in Uni.

This is very poignant, Dr. May you find all sides of the moongirl illuminated. And maybe moonlight will illumine your heart too?

You know what they say about hindsight, right? Sure you learn from it all but it still sucks.

It sounds like your moon-girl has known a lot of unhappiness and has become cynical about love. I am sorry to say it, but trying to be a knight in shining armor may not be enough to save her. Perhaps you can be a friend to her, but you might want to keep looking for a woman with a more positive outlook on life.

So, how are you doing these days Dr. O? Have you been released yet from your servitude?

Hi,

I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be very good.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog ‘Sweet Hallucinations Of A Psycho’ took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run www.rambhai.com where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)

Cheers,
Ray
