“The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age.” ~ Lucille Ball
Thanks to everyone who called, messaged and mailed (and also left messages on Facebook, Orkut, Twitter) yesterday to wish me. Yes, I completed yet another year!
Age seems to be in a hurry to take over right now just as I’m beginning to apply the brakes and trying to tell it to go slow.
The secret however, I have realised, lies in Lucille Ball’s wise statement. Not so much the part about living honestly or lying about age.
It’s the bit about eating slowly. I think it’s very important to eat slowly and I’m going to endeavour to get it right. I eat way to fast, mostly when I get really excited about the food 🙂
So a couple of weeks after going for the Auroville marathon, I decided to head there again as I hadn’t quite had my fill the last time. This time around, there was loads more time to chill out, relax and taken in the sunshine. Loads more cycling (and falling off, when will this end?!), walking and eating. A bit of yoga, a flute recital and a lot of relaxing!
Stayed in a guest house where the lady had 21 cats, most of them black. Can you imagine a whole load of black cats staring malevolently at you with unblinking green eyes? Yes, I am sure you get the picture.
But I thought I’d herald in the birthday quietly as I have the feeling that I’m in for a noisy and hectic year ahead!
