As I walked home last night
I saw a lone fox dancing
In the cold moonlight.

I stood and watched. Then
Took the low road, knowing
The night was his by right.

Sometimes, when words ring true,
I'm like a lone fox dancing
In the morning dew.

- Ruskin Bond

Ruskin bond...hmm I hate that man. Bcoz he is what i dreamt I want to be. Settle down in a pretty hill station write stuff and live on the royalty earned :). Frankly told that as my career aim to my first love,that was the last dinner we had together :) that was one moment I felt like being the lone fox forever :)

Dharmabum- thinking makes life difficult..hmm.. it sure does.. i mean if you weigh the pros and cons of thinking and not thinking, not thinking dfntly has more pros. but then we are human after all.
