The title itself is self explanatory. Do I need to tell more. Ah, sorry, it’s just that I am quite tired. Made this site in a whisk of time (which apparently was not the situation).
Well, not being more vague, let me share a real story.
Years back, there was a 15 storied, lean, tall building, “Hughes Estates”, sandwiched between another two gigantic buildings. The building had different offices given on lease and a helluva of employees working.
The building started with a couple of companies. With time, the size and the number of companies increased but the building remained of same size (pretty obvious). The building had only one lift which served all the floors. In the days of its inception it sufficed the need of the employees. But later, after more people started using it, the lift was being stopped…

“At unexpected points in life, everyone gets waylaid by the colossal force of recollection.”
–Mary Karr, The Art of Memoir
Every day, millions of people share their most intimate thoughts, stories, and memories on a WordPress.com site — and the results can be powerful. Here are two pieces I read this week and (highly!) recommend:
Those who follow our Editors’ Picks on Freshly Pressed may recognize the work of gendermom, the blog of Marlo Mack (a pseudonym) who is navigating life in the United States as the mother of a transgender daughter, “M.” Her latest post is honest, brave, and heartbreaking, about her daughter’s nervousness in going back to school, and how a mother balances the desire to protect her child from cruelty while not making her feel she must be “stealth”:

Reading biographies of great people have really led me to believe me that not only am I awesome but I’m a genius in the making 🙂 On a serious note, all geniuses have some fabric of weirdism that runs through the pattern of their life. Enjoy reading the following threads……
Leonardo Da Vinci the renowned artist was noted for carrying his notepad around included things like jokes, fables, financial records–even theories on anatomy, flight, and botany.
Andy Warhol the ‘pop art’ maverick was a hoarder of stamps, souvenirs, photographs, and even food, in a cardboard box next to his desk. Many of these hoarded objects made their way into his time capsules.
Here’s a fascinating glimpse into the surrealist art works of Salvador Dali ….he took micro naps that lasted about a couple of seconds, he’d hold a key in his hand and when he drifted off to sleep the key would slip and fall on a plate creating a loud *clink* waking him up from his ‘micro nap’. This, apparently, according to him gave his creativity an instant boost.
Beethoven was such a coffee fiend that he would spend a major part of his morning looking for 60 coffee beans to make his favourite cup of java . Apparently, the artist was so picky that he wouldn’t trust anyone to make his first cup of coffee exactly to his liking and continued to brew his cup of coffee with the choicest beans till his last breath.
A.R. Rahman is known to record music only at nights, compelling well known Bollywood bigwigs to burn their midnight oil in order to belt out chartbusting music
Doesn’t this prove that we’re all more than the patterns of our daily routines and maybe some of these elements of weirdisms embroider themselves in such a way which results in the splendor that is YOU! 🙂
