The mundane happens, you breathe, you eat, you work for a living/to kill time/waiting for some breakthrough and whatever.
Even the commonplace forgets to remind you that it has taken place and you forgot to register. Sometimes what you write also no longer matters because it is understood you write and you know it is not a new thing. You forget to answer calls or choose to forget, let's ignore that. You have canned answers to some phone calls, you don't know what to speak and what if you tell the truth...
As cells turn grey and seconds trickle to hours and days to years, you simply lose the edge over your pet peeves too. It is kinda sad to see all bright things dull and drab. How do you recover from eternal lethargic fits and intolerable indifference??
I don't know, it's so easy to give you such an answer, it's my favourite answer, hassle-free and free of income tax!!
The classic who/what/why/when/where/how irritates me to no end now, I know what a curious and inquisitive+precocious irritation I might have been to many. Sorries to all my tormented friends, Indians and acquaintances, my heartfelt apologies.
Just let it go, let it go and let it go- that's what the gyaanis, sadhus,sadh gurus say, smile and be content, start practising this and that, say this to yourself and you will feel better and yeah, you do feel better at times. Stop looking around for happiness and be happy is the mantra, forgive and forget, lead a healthy and positive life, spread good vibes and be picture perfect :)
If you are not satisfied with anything,can you do anything?? Yes, keep quiet for a while...I do that and then storm the issue, it's the last man standing kinda wrestling match, do or die.
Of course, a lot is at stake but it satisfies than being mundane.

Interesting read, it's good to know that other souls also go through similar thoughts :). your point about smiles helped me recall an interesting quote from Thich Nhat Hanh (and, some days back I saw it at some site which refreshed my memory): "Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy."

More smiles :)
