I wanted a slightly non-descriptive title for this post. Not quite sure why. I am also in a mood to not refer to anybody by name in this post. Let's see if I can finish it without doing so.
If you revisit my significant observations on a certain post, you'll recall that I'd wanted to write post(s) about a certain friend of mine. And so, far, you've had the opportunity to read only one. And I've sort of intended to write another since I wrote that one. So here goes.
This one is going to be a little more serious than the last one, so brace yourselves.
I'm the kind of person who needs a bit of a pep talk from time to time, just to maintain my mental balance. I have some specific friends whom I like to call, e-mail or meet when I am in that sort of mood. And then there's this guy, who has never been on that list of "specific friends," but has just happened to be around on a few such occasions, either in person or over e-mail, and has, either intentionally or unintentionally, given me the energy and good cheer that had gone missing from my life at certain points of time. Although, it does come to my mind that there was one occasion when he tried to do so and everything he said had exactly the opposite effect of what was originally intended. But I do remember that episode in good stead too, because I know that it was all well-intended.
In the two and a half years that I have spent at my current job with my current team, never before, while working with anybody else, did I have so much fun or get such a strong sense of respect for my colleague and a renewed faith in my own abilities and talent.
Okay, now I'm beginning to feel at a loss for words. I'm also beginning to feel sleepy. So I'll stop here. Because when I say post(s), I obviously don't have to stop at two. I can write a third one if I feel like it some time in the future.
