Dyed In a Haze

Ever had a feeling of total detachment? It's awesome really. You start thinking about something and then obviously the flow of thoughts goes further and further......and then at one point, suddenly you realize that you're detached from your thoughts in a way.....you can see them and see the flow......and it's as if you're just an observer....passive....

Experienced one of these phases on the journey to Bombay a couple of days back (Yes, am now back in Bombay). It was quite enjoyable. It all started with something a friend of mine had said to me earlier in the day and then from there on, it just kept going....and yeah, it ended with me thinking just how we manage to get into such a state....where you see your thoughts....and yet are detached....fantastic....

The first year at L is over.....and I must say that now that it's over, it seems to have passed pretty fast......another classic example of how our brain masks things it doesn't like...how memories get coloured and biased with time....selective recall...whatever.....anyway.... On campus it used to be a case of, "Damn! When will this get over so that we can go home??? This is interminable!!" And now that it's over it's a case of, "Oh! One year gone??? Already??? Wow!!! That was fast!" :-)

Was also quite hilarious seeing some of the folks pack! It was almost as if they were leaving for good and had to clean out their rooms or something. There were people taking like, 3 suitcases and all that.......and all the while I'm like thinking to myself, "Jeez! Have I missed something then? Coz I can't think of what to take to fill my bag up!!!!" And trust me, I am renowned for NOT knowing how to travel light!!!!!! Hmm......maybe it's down to the fact that I'm gonna be buying my new wardrobe so I didn't carry too many clothes......but still, 3 suitcases??????????????????
