About

//As from the older blog http://www.stillbutmoving.blogspot.com/ with slight edits(updates)

Why did I start blogging non-anonymously all of a sudden?Like most things, I don’t quite know that, just hoping that you get an idea of how this mind works, whats on it…Questions I dont know the answers to myself.So this is going to be a journey, a journey for me to discover myself. Guess you are already confused, and your mouse pointer is moving towards that ‘X’ sign on the top right corner of this window, doesn’t matter, this is my journey, backpacking through adolescence and now beyond dealing Confusion, Brain working overtime, Lostness, Trying to get some answers, of questions that I am not expecting you would understand.

And the cheesy title!!! Well thats how I feel at this moment. I seem still, but life is moving ahead pretty fast, not that I am suffering or anything, nor that I am in any pain of sort, but all I seem to do these days is sit still, and observe, and life takes me forward, as if I were on a conveyor belt, Guess you didn’t get this either!

    Yes, they are the best. Have started to listening to the Beatles and Led Zeppelin off late, but Floyd remain the best! And there are quite a few people who start listening to Pink Floyd in their late teens.

    Thanks for the comments, just beginning though, aspiring to reach your heights!!!
