My Failure to read the Premonition

Yesterday wasn’t a very good day.

So isn’t today!

My day started with an ugly verbal fight through cell phone messages- with my boss. If that was not enough, my domestic too set me on a spin. She argued uncontrollably!

While I was getting ready to write a few words for the Potluck Silver Jubilee, I heard a huge thud and some fluttering of wings. I discovered a pigeon trying to gather its bearing after having struck to the glass. I had almost caught it. As it never happened before; this time, it escaped. Almost as if under a spell, I went upstairs to catch yet another one!

I had almost caught that one too! It flew away escaping..

Something strange was happening. If I were to sit at my computer chair, the birds would start hovering all around. No sooner I would get up, they would settle down. They kept fluttering around flapping their wings and that distracted me a great deal. I had wanted to write but instead went to the section of this blog to delete un- attached images- thinking that would lighten up the load. The pigeons continued to do their thing.

While I was deleting the images from the section “un- attached”, am image almost stopped me from deleting it. I went back to check if that image was still there on the original post. It wasn’t there! I had unknowingly deleted the whole bunch. That image that had stopped me was again an image of a pigeon. Since that particular one was attached to a different file, I could get hold of only 1 image out of the entire set.

Needless to say- I was upset. Had this not stopped, I would have ended up deleting some more! I have no idea how the images got deleted when it was sat there till some days back. Perhaps they appeared under the un- attached group; but why?

I just don’t know why this happened at all! This is as far as I could take. I am a control freak- this has definitely set me up to go sulking- I so failed to understand why the 1st one flew away leaving some tail feathers back in my hand? The count of the feathers were exactly the numbers of images I lost. I had collected all of them and set loose. Only one of the feathers had flown inside my house.

I have one picture out of the whole bunch!! And yes, it’s perfectly quiet in here now 😦

So much for wanting a peaceful Sunday!!!

    Hi Olivia! Oh, sorry to hear you had such a stressful day. I recall pigeons being a pain to you before…they seem to like hanging out at your beautiful home. Sometimes, despite wanting to do things (like blog), it’s best to just go with nature and relax.

    Shame about those pigeons though – they sound annoying xx

    • Olivia says:

      Oh yeah!
      they are annoying indeed at times!!

      But this time they wanted to tell me something beforehand.. if only I had paid attention, I would have not lost all the pigeon snap shots!
      Sad indeed..

      Loved to read you here xoxox

    Oh my! The hand of synchronicity seems to be at work here! What message is it trying to bring you? BTW, your comments have been appearing just fine on my blog. Thanks for visiting and I hope your luck improves.

      Hey Dear!

      Seems they wanted to tell me how the birdie images would escape my blog nonetheless 😦
      Thank you for your wishes 🙂
      Hugs xx

    What were those birds trying to tell you? So mysterious and disconcerting–what an experience–birds and images and images of birds!

    Hope you are feeling a bit calmer by now.

    Love and hugs…

      Got to move on really!

      Those pigeons escaping even after having almost caught.. perhaps they were trying to tell me that a few images would be lost!
      Those images were right there on my blog till a few days back.. I have no idea how they got deleted! You said it right- it was really disconcerting 😦

      Even yesterday was bad! Trying to maintain my cool..
      Hugs to you too xxxx

    Good morning from here.
    Across the distance that separate
    Starting the day striving to Control
    The messenger
    Never thought a message was sent
    Dare not ask
    Was it received?
    This way or that
    now or later
    up or down
    conversations unwanted
    Not anger
    Some one striving to control
    that which is controled
    Not a freak
    Just a strong willed Woman
    That forgot how to be quite
    and listen to that she does not want to hear.

    • Olivia says:

      Just didn’t anticipate- you My Dear are a sweetheart 🙂
      A very very nice morning to you! I wish I still remain as composed as always.. Smiles!!

  7. Oh dear, so sorry to hear that… My day wasn’t all good either.. You know, I feel really sad today and I was trying to write about a tragic that happened but in vain.. Guess it will be out only tml and trust me, if you read it (when it is out), you will feel as heart-aching as I am now… 😦

    • Olivia says:

      I know how it feels when you are trying to go back in time and recall things.. if they are bad, it takes the soul out- I know the feeling!

      I am sure you will get through the sinking feel and eventually be able to compile what you wish to 🙂

      Thank you for your wonderful comment- wishing you a equally beautiful time ahead!

      Love xx
