A single thought

It’s a thought that breaks into so many tiny actions. Just one single thought and the number of things it can trigger off.

A single thought that for someone who hates talking on the phone too long, how is it that when it comes to someone special, you can talk (interesting stuff and all!) for 8, 8, 12, 8, 12… hours and so on.

A single thought that triggers a barrage of mails from potential employers – a thought that went behind updating that resume of yours.

A single thought that draws cheers or flak, depending on how well thought it is, from the boss.

A single thought that no matter how stupid it is, will always draw a look of pride and appreciation, from your mother.

A single thought that no matter what happens, you will always be your best pal and worst enemy, that triggers the death defying to the life inducing.

A single thought that leads one to write a whole post, based on nothingness, emptiness and solitude. Mental – all of it.

A single thought is what’s going in my head right now.

A single thought. Wish I could think more. Maybe I could – I would, if I were drunk enough.
