Maybe. Just maybe

It’s been a long time. So many strands run through the head. Survival of the fittest, and then you see them here.


Have you ever thought that it can be so easy to lose yourself in the daily routine? I mean, you weren’t born for this mad rush between home and office, were you? Larger question: what were you born for? Still larger question: were you at all born for anything? Now I can think of a hundred corny lines, but let's just leave them alone for now.


Unless you stop for a moment and take stock, you wont even know that with each contraceptive pill you have taken for years, and will continue to take for some time, coz you just don’t have the space for your baby, with each ‘I will do it someday,’ kind of sighs, with each deadline reached in office, with each little happy thing postponed for later, you have lost the joy forever.


The dreams that you set out with as a teenager seem like some other person’s to you now. But in the corner of your heart you still own them. Gives nice stuff to think about and smile when you have the time to. Everything’s just beginning. Maybe you will still see your baby someday.

Hmmm, with the busy life... one day, perhaps, you realize that life's passed you over! (again?)

This whole effort is to see that that doesnt happen. Will catch it by the neck, the scoundrel!

Heyheyhey... And announce your getting married already. Am sooo happy for u girl!! kissss!... then it makes sense, that ur rushed and stopped for a brief transitory moment and took stock, but its so hard to, losing yourself in the urgency of it all!!
but ur so right... i like the contraceptive analogy... like chasing the sun. In hindsight you will have time to stop and take it all in and the meaning of it all will become clear (relatively, or if ur like me will never stop!)

Its an eternal search, maybe like man's eternal quest for the Bermuda Triangle.. and then once in, no gettin out, maybe ?? Sounds a bit far fetched.. But a food for thought blog.. and then as u say say " Oh, screw it, get on with things at hand, those that you didnt really want to lay your hands on" :(

I just wanna be Calvin today and lie in the woods with Hobbes..
Utopian or simple pleasures ?

Vijayalaxmi said...

Utopian, definitely.
