Of rabbit holes and fairy tales!!

She wandered along hoping to find some peaceful place to rest her tired feet. Suddenly she found herself falling into something that seemed like a rabbit hole, and in no time she found herself in a world so different from hers.

She looked in awe at the leafless trees, barren trees and snow capped mountains. A gust of cold wind almost knocked her over. She looked around for place to shelter herself till the wind ceased. Far ahead in the distance she saw an old dilapidated mansion. She treaded towards it as quickly as her tired legs could carry her.

Just as she reached the gates, the door of the mansion was thrown open and she was greeted by a group of ferocious looking men and women clothed in black from head to toe. Their eyes seemed to be gleaming with a wicked intent. Their laughter gave her goose bumps.
She wished she could convince them she had trespassed into their world by chance and meant no harm. She opened her mouth to speak but no sound came, her voice had locked itself in fear… Her eyes had begun to fill up …. What kind of a soup had she got herself into…

Suddenly she heard a booming voice ask … “ So Deepti , what are your views about the Functional Specification document!!” And all of a sudden the mansion transformed into a blur of ice cold conference rooms, black laptops … the locked voice into a yawn and the blur was due to sleepy watering eyes…
So now I don’t even need to explain to the few people who read me where I had disappeared 😉

As John Lennon Says… You may say I’m a dreamer….But I’m not the only one!! 🙂

    And I too fell into a rabbit hole, never to come back……even with red ruby slippers!!; but then all of a sudden I saw that ferocious looking woman clothed in black from head to toe; only to realize I’m not alone; and that the woman is a familiar face, the one I saw at mind-space.

    And I fear whether she’ll ask me to get out of mind-space not to step foot on it never again and stop annoying her.

    Darling Deept.. well life does not provide a ramp up time for waking up from dreams. as all dreams go you could either sleep like as nothing happened or be woken up with a jolt and wish that you had not dreamt

  14. Shantanu says:

    Heh! Day-dreaming as always, huh? Speaking of rabbit holes, you should check out this movie called Coraline. A very different kind of animation movie.

  15. Deepti says:

    @Laughing Cobra: Since we had a long dran discussion on this .. couldnt agree more!!

    @Shantanu:Day dreaming in the permitted time 😉 Will definitely watch the movie
