The Rat Snake

Today while I was traveling by scooter, I saw huge rat snake crossing the road. It has been said by ancient people that seeking a rat snake is a sign of luck. Yes, I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Holy Communion

It is Christ who said to his disciples, take bread and eat it as my body and drink wine as my blood. Normally, Holy Communion is taken only in Churches. But taking the holy communion does not need an ordained priest or pastor. I do this ritual everyday and I take bread and wine and say: dear Christ, I take it as your body and your blood; sanctify it, nourish it and bless it. I feel so blessed in doing so.

Significant Other

My significant other lives in the Philippines. Yesterday I had a dream about her. Is the dream a sign that I will meet her soon? I hope so.

The Lottery

There is a lottery draw tomorrow called Vishu Bumper and it carries a prize of 10 Crores. I have asked Jehovah Jesus to grant me the first prize. I have left it to God’s headache to secure the winning prize. I hope to be a lucky winner.

Epiphany about a Clock

The dials are dead. The dials are stuck at 7:30. I have to reincarnate it by changing the battery. There is another clock that goes tick tock tick tock. It’s like a rhyme melody. I am infatuated by its rhythm. It’s a beauty that keeps on chiming after every hour. I try to tune my inner clock with the outer time. The clock’s melody and rhythm are a passionate music.
