An Amateur .......................

Often, I try to pick and choose titles, topics, words, from various sources for me to write something and post on foot path. The sources are not limited and topics are never difficult to pick and choose. To search for a topic looking around is sufficient. You can write about sky, about birds, about trees anything you hear or see. 

I do not think that you can exactly watch what you watched a few moments ago because ‘things keep changing’ , take a small plant that you planted few days ago what can you observe ? is the plant look same? take 'self' as a person, your surroundings , the sky for instance. let me write what i observe during this elaboration on 'an Amateur', 

Few minutes ago, I observed a tiny dark cloud and in about few minutes later I could not locate the same cloud but a ranges of dark clouds. And the colour of the cloud also was different to the cloud that I observed earlier.

Life is full of changes and differences, inevitable. We lack nothing in these universe things to write, things to talk, things to draw, things to paint thongs to discuss and things to fight; over a piece of land, a book, something or anything.         

There are no clouds to be seen but i noticed a group of little birds were flying over to the roof of the house of the neighbor of near lane.

I often like to go for movie hunt. My today’s choice was Soviet Russian, German and also Chinese but finally I end up watching a Japanese movie with English sub titles. A good movie ‘Tokyo Newcomer’, a Chinese in Tokyo who tried to play GO but was not an amateur to the game.  This is the first time I heard about Go and have not seen anyone playing the game before, so i had no clues about the game. interesting to watch the players were using black & white objects and i saw, the players were moving the objects and keeping on some of the places of the game board. I believe were following the rules of the game. Looked similar to Chess but there was no King or a queen in the areas of the game, i noticed.   

The colour of the sky is different to the colour of the sky earlier.  And I can see some white clouds were not trying to still but moving as well.

The surrounding looks 'mute' a bit. no voices to be heard.  i did not over heard any conversation from our immediate neighbourhood ,between the grand son and the grandfather.   

Every generous genius had to pass the stage - ‘amateur’ before he or who ever reaching the stage of ‘genius’ or great’.

John Mcenroe was an amateur to the field of Tennis before he started playing professional tennis in the courts of the super stars and play star class game like Wimbledon.    

A couple of white clouds trying to move towards east or west I have no idea.

Our Susanthika was an amateur before she started running on the grounds of Olympians. Aravinda De Silva was an amateur before he started playing professional and accurate cricket in the global grounds of cricket. 

The sky is cloudless.

To read something accurately or to draw something beautifully one can not do on an instance basis. To read how to pronounce the alphabet of any mother tongue a kid has to learn methodically, step by step. And no kid learn Z without learning the letter A – Y though it is true that kids pick and choose from what they hear and rarely start from Z not from A (some) before reaching the stair cases of a school a child may show some abilities in pronouncing letters accurately, at least a few letters of an alphabet,. Such kids may have learned them from their siblings, perhaps.

I can’t read sky accurately because it is ‘almost night’ I do not know whether the sky is full of clouds or cloud less but I hardly saw a craw ( not sure) was flying.

I brought the book, ‘Almost night’ of the author Ann Prospero but could not complete reading other than few pages of the book. 

Few moments ago I notice that the perhaps the same craw (again not sure), flying taking the opposite route, towards the area that he originally came from must be returning to his original place or where he came from.

I an amateur to the Tamil Language though I can speak a bit and while watching Tokyo newcomer I could memorize some of the words I learned from a teacher who came to our house via television few years back. I watched them on National 
Television / Rupavahini. She was a Sinhalese teacher who was speaking like real Japanese and wore a kimono, a Japanese traditional outfit during the lesson.  What is her name? I can’t remember.  

Every newly wedded is an amateur to the concept of 'living' in a different context.  

Stand like a Peony tree and walk like a Lilly (?) have I quoted the right phrase? I doubt. Peony is the National flower of Japan, right? Trees are firm no doubt ‘deforestation’ is a familiar term.

Some amateurs learn things faster and become qualifiers. Some are slow learners. Stand firm that is what any amateur or qualifier or genius must do. Immatureness is not a disqualification or an amateur is not a dis qualifier.

Fixing something broken often an amateur can do better than a qualifier because they like to give it a try not just because they know how to fix.
I can see that the streets lights have started their ‘duty’ and a pale light of the house of a neighbor of the front lane is trying to peep through a mat giving me some opportunity to read a bit of the outskirt of my place of living.

i can hear some children are singing a song from an unknown vicinity.
