Wonder : wonderful

Finished this book in a day and half time. It was simple yet profound. Very well written. I am definitely going to get some of the kids who haven’t read it yet to go ahead and check it out. Wouldn’t mind loaning my book either. I wanted to see the movie but decided to check out the book first on the recommendation of a fellow teacher who read it and loved it. Thanks to her for her recco. Now I am not sure if I want to see the movie 😁

2 out of 5 ain’t bad

I have visited the Lepakshi and the Tanjore temples listed in the video. I would love to visit the rest someday. I found another interesting video about the Kailasa Temple, something related to ancient aliens.

Took this photograph using my phone when we were chilling out on the beach in Brighton on Saturday.  We only saw half a ring while we were lying down on the beach. So I decided to take a couple of them using my DSLR which didn’t come out very well at least not as close to this one. Ironically, this one was taken with my eyes almost closed because of the brightness of the Sun. I think I got lucky that day with my phone.

I would let go of this dream, for sure.

It has been a very crazy day. Too many things to do and too little time. And getting up after a very crazy dream, I guess it might tend to do you in.

I don’t believe in aliens or zombies. So it was so confusing for me when I woke up the first time at 5.30 am it was because I was dreaming of aliens and I could realize myself thinking (in my dream), ‘what the hell, I don’t even believe in them. so why am I dreaming of them’. Do you ever get that feeling ? It was so crazy. So I wake up, look around a bit and then promptly go back to sleep only to dream something about my mom 🙄 That might be because we were talking about her yesterday and I was confused as to what kind of gift to buy for her. It is always difficult choice when it concerns her. If she doesn’t like it, she would not hesitate to give me an earful for ‘wasting’ my money. And then I woke up at 7.30 am. My plans to get up early gone for a toss.

I do get dreams almost daily, but I never remember them. Only on odd days like today I remember a little bit of it especially when I wake up wondering what the hell I dreamt about. At least I stopped having dreams about animals. Now those were some weird dreams.
