Why did I pick the lilies?



Last evening, I saw a beautiful bunch of lilies... right besides the stairway to our house. There is a row of potted plants that we don't really maintain... I dont know how the lily survived, but yesterday, there were about 6 beautiful, long stemmed ones there... ruby red, smiling in the light of the setting sun...


And without a second thought, I plucked all of them and put them in a vase at home.... I, who am a big fan of letting flowers stay in the bushes... I have been thinking and can't decide why I plucked them and left them in the vase to wither away...








Tried a mango cake on this weekend... looked and smelled great... :) well, it tasted good too, but the texture was not light and fluffy... so I must be messing with the proportions.... have got to scour the net for a good eggless recipe... been wanting to do this for ages... sigh!











Saw Before Sunrise and Before Sunset back to back... loved the concept.... why don't they make romantic movies like that anymore? I honestly wish I could write that well.... I'd turn into a full time writer... :) It was a romantic's dream come true... a story based on a magical, spontaneous connection unfolding in beautiful locations in Vienna & then Paris.






The best part was that there was mystery and intrigue, the climax was open ended in both... as a viewer, I can decide how I want the story to end... in the words of one the protagonists, if you are a romantic you want to believe in the happy ending, if you are a cynic, you won't... How nice if we could choose what happens in real life too... if only, wishes were horses...
