No time for cynicism

  • July 1, 2005

I am neither a writer nor a net buff/surfer…so what am I doing on a blog! I guess the need to share, to be reassured, to connect with like minded people and to be able to use yet another medium of communication is exciting. But most of all, I feel more optimistic about life. While writing about Mercy, that sudden feeling of “this may not make an interesting read” made me cynical about life. But, when I read the reactions, I felt reassured.

In any case this is not a time to be a cynic as only restoring hope is the way forward. I will keep you posted on my journey with Mercy and other special people that one continues to meet. Just paying forward…
