The Bitter Sweet Symphony

Tessa - "She's dying."
After a brief pause,
"Won't you ask of what?"
Woodrow - "Of what?"
Tessa - "Of Life."

The word Archipelago stirred my nostalgic senses up a notch, when I stumbled across it somewhere over the Internet yesterday. Archipelago, meaning a group of islands or water-bodies, was one of my favorite words to utter in my school days. I don't know why, but just the way it was pronounced fancied me. Oh, and it also reminds me, I also used to love the word Anorexia-Nervosa, which is an eating sickness (I'd read it in some Biology class). I was reminded of this, when a few days back, a friend commented on how Kate Moss looked so anorexic.
Scary how the human mind works ; I'd completely forgotten 'bout these things ; these words and these thoughts ; somehow they had taken a backplace in my mind, overshadowed by all the other trivial things that occured afterwards. Yet, they never completely disappeared. They were just waiting, lurking deep within myself, waiting for the right moment to make themselves visible again. Nice feeling, this one. This strange sense of........ self-discovery. I somehow have to do this more often..........
