assorted indulgences and
a myriad idiosyncrasies later,
i realise that The invisible counter has been ticking,
(despite my repeated attempts at ignoring blog birthdays
and other momentous landmarks)
but now, it freezes.
and i'm left staring at a number,
which would mean nothing to me If not for the blog.
If not for the blog, i'd have never
crossed paths with some of the most
amazing people in my life right now.
and that, is a HUGE understatement.
(you know who you are;
and i love you,
every one of you)
for this, i'm thankful. and willing to surrender
to the retrospection that the 100 brings.
The 100th entry, however, is not mine.
Instead, these words belong
to the one constant in my life
beyond everything else,
my soul mate,
my best friend,
I'll take the liberty of calling her following poem "Oasis"
"This is dedicated to those who have stood by me,
all those times when the sun set
and there was no hope.
There is no strength bigger than love.
If it offers none of that strength,
then it is not love at all."
PS: the song she picked.
