Weddings and my own dilema?

This picture represents a set of 3 twins (including my sister and myself n the middle) at the wedding of Nima and Dawa (the twins on the outer ends) to Sonam and Lucky (who are seen wearing matching pinkish/red next to the boys)...

Apparently this wedding is one the 9th weddings in the world where twins have gotten married to twins on the same day...

Exciting but i know for certain that me and my sister are not going to be the 10th one in the world...hahaha... It would be a bit freaky for me to think about it now but this is wonderful to see my far relatives and friends happily in love and finally getting married to their long time partners :)
This gave me the thought about my own wedding...Hahaha a bit early to even think about it for me since i am only 23 and have the whole world infront of me. I dont even have a job yet nor a career so that will come first and then once i am steady and settled marriage will automatically flow through i guess!

Oh and i just heard about my Pakistani friend who is 23 and got engaged to her Indian boyfriend of 23 who studied with me in Kodai and UBC... engagement announcement, wedding bells and jiffy pregnancy seems to be treading these days even here in Bhutan as well... C'est La Vie~

Mitagpa

"You are like a candle. Imagine you are sending light out all around you. All your words, thoughts and actions are going in many directions. If you say something kind, your kind words go in many directions and you yourself go with them. We are...transforming and continuing in a different form at every moment..."
 (Thich Nhat Hanh)

On monday night, 8th of August, 2011 i believe one of my students from the school i use to volunteer last summer committed suicide... I am still not aware of the reason why he decided to end his life. He was in grade 9 and had a very outgoing personality. I remember him to seek attention every now and then, he was a great dancer, spoke english better than some of the kids and use to tell me stories about his life...Actually I spoke to him a few days ago before the incident where he called me and said that i wasnt coming down to his area to see him...
After i heard the news, i thought about it and maybe i could have helped him out if he had problems but it's already too late now for me to go back and think i could have done something, this could have been avoided or how he could have still led his life... I dont think regret would be the best thing one could feel at this moment but rather take his life as an example of how impermanent it is and live everyday to the fullest with no regrets as such.

Life goes on now!! C'est La Vie~

30th July 2011

i thought i stood out in the crowd?
but according to you :
Even the slightest distraction
took you away from me...

Just when i needed a hug in the dark cold drizzly night
you've left me standing all alone
and you came back with a million excuses,
so, i did the right thing and leave you behind..

sober after midnight antibiotics
food and friends were the two ugly F's
a slight distraction was all it took
yet again for you to wander away

The eyes, the body or the mind?
i can't tell which one happened first
you'll say you tried your best
and i know its just another one of those crazy FRIDAY nights.
