#SoCS May 4/19


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “fall from the sky.” Write about anything that falls from the sky–real, imagined, or idiomatic. Have fun!

The thought that came to mind when I read the prompt was rain. The weather has become very hot and the humidity is very high. We are waiting for the rains to fall but we will have to wait for one month. Hopefully the rains will start by first week of June. We live in the west coast of south India. And in the east coast, specially in the state of Odisha cyclone Fani made landfall early today morning. It has been reported it is the strongest cyclone this early in the year. Life must be miserable in the affected places. The strong winds and water pouring down from the sky is causing great devastation. In the west coast we do get very heavy rainfall but never cyclones or any of nature’s devastations. As I have said we are waiting eagerly for the rains. About ten days ago, one evening, as we were looking on, dark clouds gathered and it the skies opened and it started raining. There was thunder and lightning too. It rained for half an hour. For a day the weather was cooler 😊.


Then how can I forget snowfall? I have written about this earlier. I was in Germany from early November 2017 to mid January 2018. Our granddaughter was born on November 10th. Watching snowflake drifting down from the sky was magical. There was snowfall many times and I enjoyed walking on the snow. The whole place looked so different. It was beautiful. It was a new experience for me and I loved every moment of those months. Grandchildren and snowfall 😊.

I am a person who believes there is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle. We live in a small place in South India. I love reading, blogging, stitching, traveling, photography, listening to people and many other things which make life so very nice and interesting. Blogging is a fun experience, it has brought me into contact with people in different parts of the world and it is good to read about their everyday life. In spite of the differences there is a sameness which is fascinating. I have learnt and am learning something everyday. I have learnt to write haikus. I enjoy combining the thought and the number of syllables. I have always read books and I was happy to write short fiction. I had thought I would not be able to do so. Stream of Consciousness and photo challenges are fun too. Yes, there is so much in life that is sad and that hurts us. Many a time I wonder why life is so unfair to so many. We all have problems in life but the problems of many seems unbearable. This makes me feel so helpless. It is not possible to help everyone but we can do our bit, we can do something to help some in whatever way we can. I used to go to the Home for the Mentally challenged in our campus twice a week. I have been going there since 2011. The members are an important part of my life. Covid-19 has made it difficult for me to go there regularly. Hopefully I will be able to go there again. There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made life so much more richer.


  1. I think of lightning falling from the sky. I was glad to realize that you weren’t in the path of the cyclone, though I feel for people who were. Nice reflections on welcomed rain and snow.
