Bangles and Bells
The Thought Of It
What do you think of when you hear a jingle of bells? You know, those glorious things where there's a ball inside of a ball inside of a ball that creates this beautiful sound when you simply just shake it? Do you think of Christmas, of which my English father loves? Do you think of just a simple bell, golden and shining in the broad daylight? I think of a sign of happiness, as my Indian mother and I dance to traditional music, with our bells of jewelry and of my love, jingling along. I think of sign of opportunity, as my bangles jingle with excitement, as I approach London's Big Ben. I simply just think of my golden and glistening bangles and bells, jingling, ringing, and making a magical sound as I simply, just simply, shake it.
