A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

No longer alone…


(A forced 55 er!) 🙂

The wedding guests had departed. Three days after, life was excruciatingly normal, yet again.

An empty nest. A busy husband. A bereft homemaker.

Now what? She thought… Live, or exist?

A week later, at an NGO, animatedly in the midst of young girls, laptop on lap, she sat- life she had grabbed, with loving hands!


It’s Women’s Day, and despite everything that is happening around us, I did want to think of the optimistic side of it all. How more women, as they grow into their empty nests do seem to be finding ways to live, not just exist. Kudos to such beautiful persons, everywhere! Starting with my mom 🙂 🙂

And to all you feminists, women and men, let’s celebrate The Woman 🙂

On a lighter note (but I do like the message it gives, at the end 🙂 🙂 ) may I share this picture that I received, in my inbox a couple of weeks ago?

  2. Loved the quote, especially the last part “if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit.”

    Thank you Sahana!


  3. But, isn’t lonliness only in the mind
    for those who seek life is sure to find
    the endearing things that always bind
    to take the worry away from the daily grind.

    The quote was superb.
