A Light Beyond The Grass Green

A Light Beyond The Grass Green-NCBS
“We find greatest joy, not in getting, but in expressing what we are.Men do not really live for honors or for pay; their gladness is not the taking and holding, but in doing, the striving, the building, the living…it is fun to have things but more to make them.The happy man is he who lives the life of love, not for the honors it may bring, but for the life itself."-R.J.Baughan

There are some places under the sun which give us that wondrous feeling when we step in.And more so when someone close to heart and away from home gets to reside there nothing else can be gratifying enough.

My heart is still rolling on the soft green grass in that one place.He took me for a walk in the campus showing me the different buildings and areas of his new abode like a child who is completely in love with his new school.What struck me was the strange and likable quietness in the air around.It has everything in there to give that completeness he always wished for.For a heart that is eager to learn there is all that it needs at beckon.

Blessings they say are showered when you pray enough and sometimes when you are fortunate and deserving enough too you get to live them every moment of every day.And for him this place has it all .There is an incredible happiness that I see in his eyes now,a need for focus and the thirst for more.An uncanny desire to do and be there which was once in his heart is now a beautiful way of living.A paradise is everywhere where the foot is.[Mr.Stinky Shoes;)]

I did go green with joyous envy like the grass around,a feeling which was quite expected for someone who knew what it means for him to live there.I so wish I were there every day looking at him grow up the way he wants to and share all his blissful learning moments.No surprises if I find my mind wandering in platform nine and three quarters waiting for the NCBS Express.Am jealous,big time!

But hey you are finally there...
There is so much to do and so much more to learn…
Like always...
Luck and more:)
