This Just In

I was thinking.

That...

I wouldn't like to wake up one morning at the age of 60, a multimillionaire tycoon with hot supermodel girlfriends and a large mansion in California, if what I want is to be an author who mattered, and guitarist to a few songs I love.

I wonder...if you see how we cant be both. And which is the tougher path.


Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Robert Frost (The Path Less Taken)

I forgot to put in this one in the last post. Append please.

this is one poem by Frost I don't really like. i think its his most famous one. the obvious meaning of the poem is actually quite different from what Frost intended. and there are like, a million interpretations which makes it interesting. however, i stil dont like it

ive had a similar dilemma n this is what i think...
u can get to the mansion in california in 2 ways... 1.as an author (doin what ur heart tells u, choosin arts in my case) or 2.take the obvious sure shot way to it. it would be harder to get there through the author path... but in my case, if i got there the other way i would never be able to enjoy d mansion n d super model boyfriends... i would always wonder n regret... n i would be reduced to a state where i would tell d architect (the howard roark sort) of my mansion to build it to a spirit dat is his n could hav been mine... (lol to my extended humor)

i forgot to acknowledge my quote built into d sentence... the fountainhead (ayn rand)

Confused & Baffled said...

ahem..i do not appreciate such 'inclusion' of the fountainhead in humor. some works are too precious.

im not sure what i want anymore. i suddenly have this really overwhelming urge to give up everything i love. 15 minutes ago i was even contemplating deleting my blog coz i felt i can't write for nuts, so why should i pretend?
i feel kyra has become a joke now, an incredibly childish joke. i think i just wanna be nimmy from now on. hmm

i wonder when this whole finding-who-you-are-thing will end

at least you have the mansion in mind.

Confused & Baffled said...

@kyra: it will pass. doubts and confusion will pass. you will see once again, that you write very well and shouldn't you stop saying crap like this now? its high time.

Ah! Another favorite!

And I'm going to let out a little secret.

Nishant Jain may claim that he believes in every one of Ayn Rand's principles, at least those elaborated upon in the Fountainhead....

but it isn't true....


at least, he hasn't been able to justify their grounds.

Dhruv said...

Sorry Nishant, I let your secret out on a forum like this.

Maybe that's something to talk about in one of your subsequent posts?

(*Devil horns pop out of (my) head*)

Confused & Baffled said...

the sage author of this post does not believe the comments above of one dhruv, merit any form of concerned reply or rebuttal.

Dhruv said...

Are ya afraid, big boy?
