Significant for many reasons.

a/ This is the calendar we’ll be looking at for everything:

Vidur Sury Nov 2011

Isn’t that exciting? That’s Vidur’s painting on the IISc calendar, very interestingly featured for the month of November, which is wonderful, because it is…..

b/ Birthday Month

Turning 14 is no jokes. Nothing remotely funny about that. My little boy will be fourteen years old.

c/ NaNoWriMo

I am participating in the National Novel Writing Month, and the challenge is, starting November 1, to write 50,000 words by November 30. I am excited, nervous, confident I can do it. I am counting on my support group to motivate me. I have decided to rebel and write non-fiction. But who knows? I might end up with a short story or two, too.

I wish you were here, Mi, because I don’t know anyone else who encourages and pep talks like you do. I’ll be thinking of you to keep my spirits up, when I feel low. I’ll definitely miss the endless cups of coffee you would have made for me.
