Boss,each time you flash light upon me why that stupid thunder?
Child, like meanings and words,truths and lies,they too are twins.

Fantasies of a Lifetime said...

lol, lovely never thought of the lightning and thunder as twins . . .Somethings are meant to be together !

Vibushan Lakshminarayan said...

More than the inquisitive question, the answer is simply extraordinary. A very small yet a post of depth.

Devika said...

Hi MIP...

Take your time...
words leave you in winters??
to me its the most restless period for my right brain...

but yes, this keyboard works bccome difficult..especially if one needs to work a living out of a computer key board...

hope Baby is fine...

devika

MAN IN PAINTING said...

MAN IN PAINTING said...

@devika
She will be very very happy.
your words brought great joy..
thank you..

Rakesh Vanamali said...

Wow! A very apt representation of X & Y. When Winter is here, can spring be far behind?

MIP, this is awesome and so very true! With every approval, there is condemnation too!

Usha Pisharody said...

Two sides and multiplicity of the same notion, beautifully encapsulated!

MAN IN PAINTING said...

@rakesh..
as always you saw the lightning first..
everything originated as twins..
thank you ...

MAN IN PAINTING said...

@ushaji..
i wanted to shorten it even further...but couldn't..
truth is always delicate.. even the weight of the smallest words may crush it and cannot be sensed..
thank you for seeing the lightening..

Shruti said...

soothing to me..
amazing as always...

Rushabhh Gandhi said...

I'm sorry but i failed to understand it..... Can you explain ?
Please..?

Devika said...

@shruthi..
very very happy you are back..
how was the camp?

MAN IN PAINTING said...

rushabh...
explanation always ends the possibilities..
it was my real childhood doubt...when i unlearned the science of thunder then that old question came back...
then a very personal way of understanding started...
seeing the world with our own fresh eyes has become very important in a world fully loaded with secondary informations and ideas..
it is always great if you take the question only..and know the joy.

MAN IN PAINTING said...

@devikaji..
she took the flowers and sends her giggles and smiles to you..told me to tell you that she can sit now...
i would love to read that..
take care

tunafish said...

Did you know cantonese people like 2 as it sounds the same way as 'easy' in their language.
I guess everytime you see 'light' it will be followed by 'thunder'and then...the sky clears out.

Sandeep Balan said...

wow...really beautiful...you really are a keyboard sculptor...lightening and thunder...loved the whole idea...such few words..such deep impact...commendable..

Devika said...

You still with twins, MIP??

At Nick's blog I saw you with an 'OH!" -- but that wasn't accessible...

Hope all fine...
smiles and roses (i have a new one today) for Baby B...

wishes,
devika

MAN IN PAINTING said...

thank you..

MAN IN PAINTING said...

@tuna..
I never knew that...thank you..
how are you..

MAN IN PAINTING said...

@sandeep
thank you..

MAN IN PAINTING said...

@devika
Yes..i tried to post something..then felt it was not ready..wasn't in a blogging mood for many days..
may be because of the "live horror show" in our electronic media..
to be true I somehow just wanted to stay with B all the time..
wanted to be away from "mind"..
B just want to taste everything.
the whole world is a bakery for her ...
thank you so much..
take care..
all wishes.
