Breeding Lucidity

In vivo. In vitro.
Tuesday, August 13, 2013

Have you felt it creeping up on you? That feeling that you cannot shake. You were introduced to it one cold morning. Since then, it has been lurking around. A stalker. Not the kind that validates your existence by devotion albeit devotion of the certifiably insane kind. This one just hangs around to put you in your place. A reminder that you don't belong among the clouds but on the cold, hard, damp ground. You keep your facade up - that bravado, that defiance. But within, you cower like a new born kitten, with barely open eyes, hiding for cover from those big feet moving around the house. It is bigger than what you can explain away. It is more frightening than your worst nightmares. You realise that it doesn't just lurk for you, but for everyone close to you. It is mortifying. Mortify - verb - late 14c - "to kill" - "put to death". The defiance makes a final stand - No, I am not afraid of death. And then that defiance obsequiously slips away - But yes, I am afraid of outliving it.

The feathered friend.

There are times when uncertainty washes over you, nay, quite clearly tries to drown you. In a weird way though, the deluge brings with it a possibility of a do-over. An opportunity to, maybe, somehow erase those smudges and draw a cleaner line. Not necessarily a straight line, but a nice wavy one that traverses right along the most beautiful edges of today and makes sure that it doesn't come in contact with the forgettable. It never really ends today. It just gives you a neater canvas for tomorrow. I suppose the optimist in me will always see it thus. The mildly adventurous side of me also rubs her hands in cautious glee over the prospect. I agree that there are no guarantees. But I cannot fail to notice the clues in nature. The cycles. The seasons. I suppose my friend was right - I can never imagine ending a thought without hope. Well, Emily Dickinson's bird is alive and well in this corner!

On another note,  I would like to thank the beautiful country and lovely people of Latvia for bumping up my page views over the past month. Look out Netherlands, your 6th spot is almost up for grabs!
