[The title of this post has been ripped off from a book called UP AND DOWN IN THE DALES. If ever you come across this book do not miss reading it! Strongly recommended. There is nothing special about this book, but the simplicity and the soft humour is the highlight.]

Life is indeed a roller coaster ride. Showing you highs, then suddenly taking you to the bottom and finally gracefully gliding back up. Again.

The different times teach us different things, about life, about us and about the people around us. When everything’s alright one really doesn’t care about anything. Hitting an all-time-low is a nightmare for anyone.

Sometimes when feeling low, I crave for a “someone”. Someone who will hold my hand and looking into his eyes I ll forget everything else. Someone who ll say nothing, just give me a hug, which says it all. Someone who ll put me to sleep and sing me a lullaby. Someone who will carry me to the balcony and count the stars with me, when I can’t sleep Someone who smiles at me with a breakfast tray when I wake up. Someone who will get me flowers just like that. Someone who kisses me when I lose my temper.

Oh yes I am a hopeless romantic (bigger than the biggest) and it seems like I have gone way too far with the vivid description of “someone” or rather what the someone should do to/for me. I need to stop now.

Well, I know life is all about being practical and smart. But it doesn’t hurt to be a little foolish and silly (and a hopeless romantic) at times.

So three cheers for “someone”.

Also a very happy and bright new year to all you wonderful people out there.
Hope you have a great one!
