And miles to go before I sleep…

Warning: This is not going to be a profound post…if you are expecting something like that after reading the title.

As I sat down to write, my mind was crowded with thoughts of things I need to do, I want to do, but I can’t do, presently, for several reasons. I just couldn’t focus on any particular thing to write about. So, I thought, why write something contrived ? Why not simply write about what’s on my mind right now, this very moment ?

So here goes…

These are a few of the things I am longing to do…

Sleep. And wake up only when I feel like it. Only when I feel completely rested. I think this item would be on everybody’s list, if they made one :)

Finish reading those three…um…wait, it’s four…actually no, those five new books.

Take a vacation. Somewhere serene and beautiful. And not get antsy on the last two days of the vacation with the thought that it is getting over.

Finish writing that story I have begun.

Drive on my motorcycle to Kokan. For the uninitiated, Kokan is about 200 kilometres from where I live. This involves driving on the highway for some parts and on narrow curvy roads for other parts, for about five hours. My father has absolutely forbidden me to do it !

Mend things gone wrong between two of my friends and make them good friends again.

Learn to dance.

Teach people to communicate effectively. I know this sounds immodest, but I have been acknowledged, by people who hold some authority on the subject, to be a very effective communicator.

Shirk off my inertia where exercise in concerned.

Phew…long list, isn’t it ? And I have written only half the things !

And thus, the title of the post…miles to go before I sleep…

The Dental Diaries - 3

There I was sitting in ‘The Chair’ with a plastic thingy in my mouth to keep it open while my dentist used frightening and noisy drilling and scraping machines to repair the damage caused to my teeth due to my phobia of visiting dentists. As usual, there was music playing in the background. When the first song ended and second one began, intently staring into a cavity, he asked me, “So, tell me, who is this singer ?”

My dentist’s a funny chap.

Three (more) eventful days in London !

There is so much that we have done over the last week that it is going to be so difficult to capture all of it in a blogpost, but I'll try...
We spent three days in London...30th April and 1st and 2nd May. We stayed with the very warm and welcoming H, S and their wonderful daughter A. On the 30th we reached Euston and decided to walk about Central London for the day and go to H & S's home in North Harrow in the evening.
So we walked about Tottenham Court Road, a bit in Soho and later in Covent Garden and on Shaftesbury Avenue. The lanes of Covent Garden are quite unique. There are small (both inexpensive and expensive) eateries serving all kinds of food. We saw a monument called The Seven Dials Monument and the quintessential London landmark - the red telephone booth. We also came across a monument to Agatha Christie ! 

The great fun was to see (play) theatres almost at every corner. There was the Ambassador's Theatre where Stomp is being staged and there was St. Martin&#…
