Enjoy the showers!

Not bad! Not bad at all!  That's how I am faring*. It is April already in this part of the world. I am sure in yours too. The showers have arrived few days early, safe and sound. The sun is on a weekend break or so it appears; hope it won't be gone too long...

There was this sudden desire in me to watch some sea; yes, the ocean as we call it in this part of the town. Watched Poseidon; it wasn't all that good as there is not much sea but only the interiors of this huge ship you see. Then I tried Fools Gold which was indeed the kind of sea I wanted to see, the depth, the breadth and everything.

A day later @KParthasarathy had sent me this clip of Cape Horn that was much more than what I had asked for. The next day found a book called Ocean Sea by Alessandro Baricco, from our office library. It has a lot to offer in terms of sea.

But then just realized it is about people with some mind issues and might turn out to be a thriller and if so it won't be my kind of book. So I am at a dilemma whether to continue reading or quit now. Will decide few more pages later and save the book for Mom's summer reading.

Mother-in-law has left behind a nice long letter - almost a journal - for her children including children-in-law and grandchildren. Just got our copy in the mail and finished reading at once! Though I have heard some of the stories from her, it felt good hearing from her all over again. I could somewhat relate to her as she could express more in letter than in person. Her steadfast faith had kept her going through the downs and she had lived to see her promised blessings.

I guess that's all news at my end. Enjoy the showers folks; beautiful flowers are just around the corner! Happy April 2012!

Friend always,

FARING. not fairing.

It didn't rain today. But, March was quite wet. Love my 5 Boston ferns that hang right outside my windows. They are growing very well there.

The sea? I live just 10 minutes away from Pearl Harbor and the Pacific Ocean. Can't see it from my house, but we pass by it when we drive in our car.

You should visit Hawaii and see the sights. Be sure to call me!

Thanks Gigi. So, what is fairing?

Thanks Anil; I believe it is the effect of the current reading. :)

Enjoy Bikram! Bring back tons of pictures to share with us.

loving to read of your mother-in-laws journal, what an amazing thing to have, such a memorable keep-sake.

You should google "fairing," because it does refer to a certain part of an aircraft or motorcycle that you can read up on.

I had tried that already Gigi! It was quite confusing that people had used it interchangeably and that's when I got confused...

Now I will not! :)

Fare as a verb is used to denote how something works out or how one is faring. Farewell. Your usage of faring in the beginning is right
Fare as a noun is the tariff or fee
Fair as noun is book fair
It can also be used to denote the complexion.

Enjoy the nice weather.May it inspire you bto write more.
