Of Rain and the Rainbows Thereafter

It’s been more than a year since I started this blog, and I finally realized I haven’t been treating it right. For starters, the blog was started without so much as a name or a purpose in mind. I just remember deciding one fine day that I needed a place to put down all the random thoughts that keep circling my mind all day, and voila, this virtual baby was born. Not even five minutes’ worth of thinking went into deciding its name. I was jobless and sitting idle at home at the time, hence ‘Confessions of an idle mind’ seemed proper. However, now that the idle phase is long gone, I thought the name didn’t quite cut it anymore. So for the past couple of days, I’d been thinking of a new name for my blog: something that would say everything this blog is about. And then it occurred to me that since this little virtual corner talks about all my rainy days and sometimes the beautiful rainbows that adorn my horizon, the name should relate to this. Hence 'Of Rain and The Rainbows Thereafter' came to mind. What more, the new name goes perfectly with my template that I dearly love. 

Along with the new name, I have plans of giving more time to my blog from now on. I’ve neglected it long enough and it deserves more grooming and caring. I still don’t plan to categorize this blog into any particular subject, but I will try to focus more on the rainbows than the rain this time around, although the beauty in raindrops won’t be ignored altogether. Any suggestions/advice/comments from my readers are very welcome too.
Anyways, I hope you like the new name. Drop me a line or two about what you think of it. Have a great day/week y’all!

I took a heavenly ride through our silence, I knew the moment had arrived, For killing the past and coming back to life

I did it once again…all over again, much to my disappointment. I let myself roll over and curl up in a somewhat comfortably numb position and just stayed there, letting the stagnancy seep through me and envelop me from all sides, knowing full well that it would be a long, long time before I would be able to break out of my trance-like state to test the waters of the ‘real’ world once again and catch up to its pace, for surely it has not stayed behind like me all this while. But it’s all good now. With the last bits of chilly breeze long gone now, I’m letting the still-very-tolerably-mellow warmth of the spring sunshine thaw me out of unintentionally built cocoon and for the moment, just basking and planning for days to come. Not that I have too much to plan for, but it does some good to my soul: gives it a purpose, no matter how trivial. And I like feeling like I have things to plan for.

So here I am once again, giving this place the thorough dusting that it needs and opening the proverbial curtains wide open to let the sunlight seep in here too, for I need to make it warm and toasty and welcoming once again if I want my visitors to start pouring in again, right? Yeah, so that’s done. I’m off for now, but I’ll be around, so drop in and say hi if you want. Till the next time, have a good day!
