You know, someone asked me the other night what my ďone wishĒ would be. I donít recall my exact answer then, but it was probably something flip, smart alecky. Right now, Iíd take that wish and put it to a use that feels really important right now. Iíd use it to understand what makes people act as they do. Iíd use it to figure out what causes someone to do something which you wouldnít have guessed would happen in a million years... out of the blue, with no prior indication it was going to happen.

I donít know why things work this way, because I donít really get that wish. But itís times like these, on nights of fitful sleep that I really, really wish I did.

Well here is something that I thought of wishing this morning... maybe one day, I will finish the set of three wishes and post it in the forums...
--------
O Pied Piper!
How I beg you to return
To charm the beasts those plague our lives.
Take with you,
These repulsive gnats of poverty and pain
These poisonous fleas of illness and sorrow.
We waging a war forever
For an unknown tomorrow
Of hollow glory and shallow fame.
Our children seem to have
Grown up before they have grown
Whilst our elders are growing helpless

O Pied Piper!
How I wish upon you to return
To lead these rats down the streets
And drown them in the sea.

I shall be forever grateful to you.
-------
Chris, as for you I would wish and hope that you sleep well...


regards,
sudhir

Sometimes we expect too much or too little from someone. We're human and we don't have the ability to read minds (well the rest of the world doesn't but we read each others don't we Chris).


I understand without the words being spoken.

Smile and go on.
