This one's for you..

You are my companion through journeys myriad, as we delve deep and absorb thoughts, words and creation, together, from those many, many pages.

I love the way you stick out your head in anticipation, waiting for me, the forgetful soul, all the while, to remind me of those volatile, in-between beginnings.

This one’s for you, dear bookmark..:)



(The picture is a prized bookmark that I possess, one that was personally autographed for me by Gregory David Roberts, the author of the bestseller Shantaram, on his visit to Bombay during November 2005.)

Anthropomorphism of a bookmark at its best, Anu.
And written too with such tender feelings for your companion in never-ending journey together inside books!
