Live life like there is no tomorrow.......!!!!!!


The moment that left a beautiful imprint on my heart!!!


I'm happy.. i don't know how to surmise in words what i am feeling now.. God has been so kind to me.. no more wishes.. for this month ;)... thank you Lord for everything.

I am falling short of words to tell you or to express my happiness.. my soul is at peace.. this is what all i can say..... i kept looking at my finger long after ring ceremony.. i couldn't believe my eyes.. you know what when he slid ring in my finger i looked at him so intensely.. as if he is some ethereal being sitting in front of me..

I wonder what he felt that moment.. may be he had no time to feel anything since he was so occupied with his kith and kin...but i was not... he was the sole center of my attention.... this was not a social gathering for me.. this was the precious day in my life..... though my love is not dependent on any social ceremony or ritual .. but this ring is something he adorned me with.. so very precious...

I know what I seek for is yet too far from me.. and will always be.... since what i wish for is not possible at least in this lifetime.. and i have no patience to long for another when I'm not sure of my wish being granted.... so of no avail...I live for today.. for this moment .. the moment I am breathing in.. so I am going to live this at its best... will cherish its memories... make it mine like one flesh and blood.. will seize this moment and surrender to its joys and sorrows...

That's why i call this life....carpe diem... "seize the day"...... "remember we die"

Horace... the great master of past says in one of his odes... carpe diem...seize the day... do not trust in future.....memento mori.....

Tu ne quaesieris, scire nefas, quem mihi, quem tibi Leuconoe, don't ask — it's a sin to know —
finem di dederint, Leuconoe, nec Babylonios what end the gods will give me or you. Don't play with Babylonian
temptaris numeros. ut melius, quidquid erit, pati. fortune-telling either. It is better to endure whatever will be.
seu pluris hiemes seu tribuit Iuppiter ultimam, Whether Jupiter has allotted to you many more winters or this final one
quae nunc oppositis debilitat pumicibus mare which even now wears out the Tyrrhenian sea on the rocks placed opposite
Tyrrhenum: sapias, vina liques et spatio brevi — be smart, drink your wine. Scale back your long hopes

aetas: carpe diem quam minimum credula postero.


Seize the day, trusting as little as possible in the future.
Ode 11-Horace(Book I)

Don't ask(we may not know), Leuconoe,
What the god plan for you and me.
Leave the Chaldees to parse
The sentence of the stars

Better to bear the outcome, good or bad,
Whether Jove purposes to add
Fresh winters to the past
Or to make this the last

Which now tires out the Tuscan sea and mocks
Its strength with barricades of rocks.
Be wise, strain clear the wine
And prune the rambling vine.

Of expectation. Life's short. Even while
We talk, Time, hateful, runs a mile.
Don't trust tomorrow's bough
For fruit, Pluck (carpe) this, here, now(diem).
