Tomorrow - LBC Post

I've been meaning to rejoin my friends at the Loose Bloggers Consortium for our weekly post.  The problem is that last week's topic was 'Goodbye'.  It didn't inspire me at all.

This week's topic is 'Tomorrow'.  Now I'm just going to sit back and let the inspiration start flowing.

TOMORROW      (by gaelikaa)

Tomorrow I'm going to change my ways
Improve my life, improve my days,
I'll keep my stuff all up to date,
No more will I procrastinate.
I won't be late, I'll be on time,
Fix those annoying habits of mine,
Be more productive, organised,
As I have always been advised.
But just right now, I'm feeling tired,
Not really feeling much inspired.
So I shall sleep, on rest catch up
And wake up feeling all fired up.

Yes, there's always tomorrow, isn't there?  Scarlett O'Hara was right.  Tomorrow is another day.  Full of hope and possibilities.

For some strange reason, tomorrow never comes for some people.  Strange isn't it?

Something odd about the Hindi language.  My husband's language The word for 'tomorrow' and 'yesterday' is exactly the same.  'Kal'.  The trouble with 'kal' is that it's always yesterday or tomorrow.  Never now.

Whoever said tomorrow never comes got it just about right, I'd say.

This is my weekly post for the LOOSE BLOGGERS CONSORTIUM.  We are an international group of bloggers, from Ireland, the UK, the USA, China and India and we post on a single topic every week unless one of us has some sort of issue which prevents us from posting.  We are, in alphabetical order, Delirious,  Grannymar,   MaxiMariaSF,  Padmum,  PaulRohitShackmanThe Old Fossil and Will.  If you like this post, go and visit my friends too and check out their take on this fascinating topic!


  1. Nice to see you back here and a nice way to restart. I hope that the list sees tomorrow.

    My post said Tomorrow never comes. There, I am some people.

  2. Ramana, you are not just 'some person'. You are my brother....especially chosen.

  3. Tomorrow is indeed another day if you make it. No guarantee there. But without hope, life would certainly be a serious drag - LOL

  4. You're right there, Shackman. Nothing surer....

  5. Ha ha, great poem! YOu hit the nail on the head for me. :D

  6. God is love!

  7. Good to see you back blogging with us, I hope there will be many tomorrows with you joining us!

  8. Thank you Grannymar. Nice to see you over here again, after a long time.

  9. Maria, may the next topics inspire you as this one did! And may you find inspiration where none initially exists. It is good to have you back!

  10. Hi, Old Fossil! How very nice of you to drop in and what a nice, positive, encouraging comment you just gave, bless you. Oh, I'll be back next week as usual, for sure.

  11. Oh, and in case Emmanual decides to drop back in: Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I know God very well, thank you very much. If you'd like to encourage people to read and follow your blog, I suggest you contribute to the comment box conversation in a meaningful way, because meaningless comments come under the general heading of 'SPAM' and unfortunately, that's not the way to get followers for your blog.

  12. This was a lovely poem that describes me well!

    Probably its best in the long run to always look forward to another day and to make the most of this one! No good worrying about what has already happened.
    Strange about Kal!

  13. Thanks for stopping by, Maggie May. I really do think 'kal' is a strange thing indeed.

  14. Love your poem, Maria. Gives one pause that's for sure. Hope you're doing okay.

Good Intentions

I had great intentions for this week.  I'd write a thousand words every day, review six books, get my Loose Bloggers Consortium (LBC) post up well in advance.  And did I?  No, no, no.  I wrote about two hundred words per day and have been trying to read and review two books and still not finished reading.  My target of 19,000 words until today by now is around 15,000 on my 100kWords in 100 Days Challenge.  It seems I'm just not cutting the mustard.

I have the intentions.  I just don't seem to have the mojo to carry out the things I want to do. So many intentions, not enough time.  I've not been sleeping well lately.  Probably very tired.

So - my intention now is to try to get more sleep.  Then carry out the original intentions.That' what I intend to do.  As of now.  Meanwhile, my post is up one day late.

I had to go out to the bank this morning to get some pending work finished.  I clicked the above picture en route.  It seems that after a three week winter, we're…

Global Peace - Is It Possible? LBC Post

I can't believe it's Friday already and time for another LBC post.  The Loose Blogger's Consortium (LBC) is a blogging group consisting of about half a dozen of us who blog together every Friday on the same topic.  We are indebted to Ramana (aka blogger Rummuser) for this week's topic.  Instead of just giving a straightforward topic like anyone else would, he posed a question instead.  Is global peace possible? he asked.  I decided to answer his question in a Tweet sized sentence.

Is global peace possible?  Of course it is. If everyone gets in harmony with each other.   But will it happen?  How on earth would I know?

As we say in Ireland (well, as they used to say when I lived there two decades ago), that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Thanks to All-Free-Download for the photo.  Thanks to Lettercount for their character counting facilities.  And thanks to my LBC group for being there every Friday in blogging solidarity.

The Curse of Poverty - Short Story

As the dawn light spread its fingers across the early morning, Rajji stirred uneasily.  She tended to sleep like a street dog - ever alert, with one ear open.  But she'd been tired the previous night and as a consequence had slept rather heavily. Her life was a constant struggle, filled with tasks and responsibilities. If she hadn't been careful, she might have been robbed!  She sprang into alert mode and clutched about her person.  No, everything was in place, the precious money was undisturbed.  Thanks to her employment with the bank, cleaning for one hour every morning, six days a week, she even had a bank account which one of the bank employees had helped her to set up.  What little money she had saved up was safe.....

She looked over her children.  Babu, her son lay sleeping still.  Muniya, her daughter, stirred, close to waking up.  But where was Gudiya, her youngest child?  Might have woken up early and gone to wander around.  Gudiya knew everyone around here and every…
