It's that time of the year again. Buds on trees, clear skies interspersed with showers, yellow flowers on hedges, a faint green on the lawns instead of the dead brown. I remember an old saying from 3rd grade in Calicut.."April Showers bring May flowers"...Only problem is that there are no May flowers here..those beautiful mass of color that herald summer there!!
Spring is here, evident in the chirping punctuating the morning before the light breaks through and awakens you earlier than the past few months. Evident in the light that greets you when you step out of the office in the evening, so invigorating that you feel the whole day is still ahead of you and its not just evening 6pm. Soccer practice, swimming classes, cycling, gardening, or just park visits..every body is suddenly outside, streaming out of the rabbit holes. We visited the park yesterday and it was filled with the chattering of kids and parents relieved to let the kids expend the energy outside. Even strangers smile at you!!
It's also that time of the year when I look at my blog, my deep blue ocean of thoughts and ponderings and then I look at other happening blogs which seems so colorful and start thinking of template change. Hmm.. why doesn't my blog have that feature or this feature(Not that I have the time to maintain it:))...Hmm.. There are so many wonderful looking templates out there thats its tempting..
And then there are you, my readers. Looking from the other side, I bet you don't like change. You want the familiar and trustworthy, You want everything to stay exactly the same, don't you? So the knee jerk reaction of disliking my blog's new look..
C'mon all of you who sent in comments, even the anonymous eyeball in a million, don't you paint your house once in a while? (I hope you do) Do you think it's ok for your friends to come into your living room and say, "eeewww..what a color, Please please for millions of eyeballs' sake go back to your old color?"
GIve it a chance, it will grow on you. Just think of it as a friend who got a new haircut. You may dislike the look initially, but the soul is the same.
The content is the same, the links the same but I wanted to upgrade for the ease of getting my posts to you faster, without having to struggle thru the old HTML format...
Its my readers that compel me to keep posting, so all your thots are really appreciated. So do tell me if you really want the old "blue all over" back or the "new blue-white box" template as shown above. And seriously that header had grown so moldy..even the best of spices need to get changed once a year at least!!They grow old and lose their vibrancy and flavor. SO I have either this look or the white box in a blue look finalised. Which one do u like more? I need a vote to decide. SO do write in..
