Look-alike

20 Jan

Maybe because
I was looking for something.
Or maybe just because
I looked lost… as if I had lost it all.

Maybe that’s why
He came running to me
Or maybe that’s why
He felt he owed me what he’d found.

“You’ve lost it, haven’t you?” He grinned.
“Maybe I have” I may have said.
Maybe that’s why
His grin stretched wider.
Like a magician he pulled out
What could be what I’d lost.

“May I?” Politely, this time he asked.
“Please” my politer response.
“23… Huh?” he quizzed.
“Ahem” I cleared my throat.
“Kenya… Must have enjoyed a lot!”
I must have replied with a smirk.
“Holy city…!?!” he winked, continued
“Europe… Must have been a blast”

I must have looked bored by then,
Or a girl seriously interrupted.
As if on cue, he got up
And handed me a passport.
“Thank your stars” he waved
“Why stars… Thank me” he went on.
I looked on, star-gazing style
As he sauntered away.

Well, I don’t quite remember what I was looking for
If at all I was looking for something.
But now i must surely look for some Nina-who,
Cause she has to be looking for her passport for sure.

The WHYs

15 Jan

Living comes.with many unanswered questions…
One doesn’t have to always be the curious cat!
One doesn’t always have to be a victim of some curious case… the questions just arise…

Such questions I have far too many… But for now presenting my first 5 why’s.

Why this picture... pray don't ask!!!

1. Why don’t I fall asleep when I really badly want to fall asleep?
2. Why can’t I quit smoking even though I pretend to have quit it??
3. Why do I end up working alongside the most pathetically obnoxious colleagues???
4. Why does Readers Digest never publish anything I send to them????
5. Why is my skin always so uneven?????

Until another episode of some more questions!!!

So You Want to Be a Storyteller?

4 Jan

So much to learn…

Sam S. Mullins: a blog about anything

Really? Even if people won’t want to date you ever again for fear that you’ll one day talk about them on stage? You’re sure?

Okay. Welcome aboard.

Here’s a cheap glass of wine. Where we’re going, you’ll need it.

I’ve got to tell you – I think you’ve picked a great time to get into the story game. I mean, with the success of storytelling podcasts like The Moth, RISK!, Definitely Not the Opera, Snap Judgement and This American Life millions of people are now aware of the phenomenon of modern storytelling. Just about every city in North America now has a regular storytelling event, and there seems to be more opportunities for storytellers than ever before. For raconteurs like us, the getting has never been good-er.

But before you start speaking your heart into the crackly microphone at the local roti place’s storytelling event (at which no one is there to actually hear stories [they’re just there…
