As per your wish, here is not one but many happy smiles hearty laughter. And a bonus, I’m there too 😀

This was taken at a bloggers meet by IndiBlogger, India’s largest community of bloggers. Connected Music IndiMeet (we technically add ‘Indi’ before anything here, sort of) sponsored by HP. And as another bonus, here is what happened there in glorious detail (kind of) in a previous post of mine – The sound of blogging. Well okay, I already mentioned this in another previous challenge, but still that post is so awesome. (so kindly don’t jump on me please)

Coming to the title, this poem was what immediately came into my mind.

A Dream Within a Dream.

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

Edgar Allan Poe

  2. Here is the truth ….. Why is Obama trying to start a race war again for the third time?
    First, it was Professor Gates who gained unintended consequences from his action. Christopher Monfort, in a politically driven, violent campaign against the Seattle police officers, responded to what seemed like Obama’s call for race war by killing Officer Timothy Brenton and wounding Officer Britt Sweeney. It was followed by Maurice Clemmons who killed four police officers at a coffee shop in execution style. Then another officer responded to a 911 call and he was shot at upon arrival. Then the cop killing fizzled out.
    Next came Trayvon Martin. Obama said that Trayvon was his soulmate and if he had a son, he would be like Trayvon. But Obama’s world collapse when it was revealed Trayvon had traces of marijuana which was enough to make him the aggressor. This was consistent with George Zimmerman’s testimony. And Trayvon’s school record of suspensions didn’t help Obama either.
    And now Michael Brown. Obama was careful to make the same mistake as in the past two incidents but his Attorney General visited the family of Brown and later vowed to put the full resources of the Department of Justice to bringing justice for the Brown family. This was also the promise of Governor Jay Nixon, a democrat. But where is the justice for the police officer? Are Holder and Nixon jumping the gun? Again, the Brown killing will end up just like Trayvon. Why? Because Brown was a thug and a bully while the police officer has exemplary record just like Zimmerman.
    The whites cannot do anything but just watch from a distance until the blacks stop being victims. Only the blacks can solve their problem. It is within.
    All race war will be like these because like begets like. Yes, like begets like and racism begets racism. Truth is stranger than fiction.
