Pointless, really...


Everything in life takes its own course, doesn’t it? Your dog wouldn’t give a rat’s ass as to how ‘hairy’ or ‘spotty’ you want it to be and your guinea pig wouldn’t get off the wheel (or mill?) even if it meant losing its own fat ass. (A couple of persistent nags just had to let me know.) Pointless again! Just like this blog ‘o mine. The intent was to document my (many concealed) eccentricities and warped opinions on any-and-all issues covering the spectrum between homicidal love and suicidal hate. But, this blog chose to reflect my mood swings and experiences with life. That’s how ‘Neurotic Rumble’ became ‘Moon’s Croon’.

So, who would be interested in my mindless dribble or pithy even? I had to wonder. I was sure you’d find me. Yes, you. I’ll give you that even though it’s child’s play to follow the scent of arrogance. Though what surprised me is that I didn’t comatose you by the end of paragraph one. Again, the credit goes to you.

Now is a good time for some digression. “There is God in each one of us.” Heard that a lot? I have, and in that sense I must be the most naïve atheist ever. Witty and vigilant, I always have my defenses ready every time I’m taking chances with people. Wanting to believe the best in people doesn’t make it true and being afraid to believe doesn’t make it false. Wonder why that didn’t make me hip-ly cynical even though I’ve been known to make easy snide remarks. I wonder why I still think that people are good and am disappointed once and again.

Witty and vigilant, do have some defenses ready against disappointments as well! ;)

Well 'moon's croon' is nice too. And why do people want to read you? I don't know. May be because you write well? From the heart.
"I wonder why I still think that people are good and am disappointed once and again"
I do that too. But I guess it is the hope that may be we won't be disappointed?

"Pointless, really..." :P

Forget others. We too disappoint ourselves. And often enough. But doesn't mean we don't love/ care about ourselves. But in case of others, this difference- between them disappointing us but still loving us, is difficult to see.

Non philosophically, hope u r feeling better :)

I hear you! But I think you should continue with your sunny attitude. Hope springs eternal, eh? I myself have embarked on a journey to experience the truth . . . and these questions have begun to haunt me . . .

@ i7
Oh, trust me, I do; except that i have a four lettered chink in my armor.

@ m(tsu)
Do I ???? :-) you're way too kind but i like it... hehehe...
Again, wanting to believe doesn't make it true, does it ???

@ perspective inc
Isn't it hypothetically possible that somebody who hasn't let you down yet... will do so... on some other (bad) day ???

@ siraj
Hey bro. Good to see you here. Again, saying that was pointless too... :P

@ lemontree
It is such thoughts that make my "atheism" "naive"... Nice take though. Good to see you back and yes, i am feeling much better. :)

@ cherie
Good to know i'm not the only one. Might I ask what titillated your spiritual journey ?
