Unexpected joy!

A regular weekday morning dawns. Your mother kicks you out of bed, and slowly and morosely you trudge along for college. Just like any other day. And yet, how does it feel when you get that sms on a boring bus ride saying, "we're bunking college, going to Diamond Harbour, come fast."?? Unexpected joy. You start smiling as others stare at you, trying to detect obvious signs of lunacy. And the day that ensues, full of fun and frolic. Dipping down into the river, running in the mud or just sitting on a rock watching the sun set on the glittering water while a cool, gentle breeze runs through your hair..... sheer bliss!!




The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.
-Bilbo Baggins(Lord Of The Rings)
