Yesterday, it was “hailstone-ing” out here. It happened around mid afternoon, to mark the beginning of the cold, dusky days and the end of the torrid sweaty days. For once, all hospital work came to a standstill ( just for a few seconds !!) as all gazed out. It was pretty interesting to listen to the various comments circulating around. ” Will our car windows get scratched ?!!” ” How are we going to get back home ?!” ” We’ll get pretty late today!!” ,”Cancel the evening meeting, we won’t be able to make it!!”…..But the loudest was by the kids, “Let’s go out, it’s hailstones!!” and ” Yay, it’s raining out here !!” The last these little things came down was about ten years ago !! A day later, i.e. today the atmosphere is pretty vibrant out here. Lighter woolens are in now, with scarves ( my personal favs!!) gaining a lot of popularity, hot cups of cocoa and loads of soup.
The entire season change has affected the mood around . In a way, basic human nature is similar. We all have different colors to add to life. Each person has their own flavor to give. But, in the end the basic principles remain the same. Like, each hailstone we come in different shapes and sizes, but each of us have a unique fingerprint. True, hailstones have immense potential to cause huge damage; but it’s one of nature’s natural events. Depending on the altitude of fall, it has potential to cause immense loss. Come to think of it, it follows the natural cycle of life and destruction. Something like the gift that we have, to bring about another positive change in this world no matter how small it may be or to sit back and just be passive viewers.
Well , I am pretty much in a reflective mood today. Every incident has something to offer us, no matter how hopeless it may seem to be. Have a nice day !!
