Another walk through the past

Thanks to the ever helpful 'Microsoft Excel', I now know that it has been 254 days since I last blogged... and phew!!! Have things changed since!!!

This time last week, I was returning back from one of the most memorable trips I ever made. A two day respite from the currents of life meant that we were free just enough to steal a small rendezvous with a world away from ours.

Sky that was bathed in all colours of the rainbow in different times of the day, ranging from red as the sun peeked over the glorious western ghats to violet as the day receeded to dusk, making way for moon to play its way through the night clouds, casting a spell on anybody willing to get lost in the simplest yet most entrhalling of beauties that nature has to offer.
---
Sand in the feet, breeze in the eyes... the vast stretches of beach near our abode... the looming treehouses... all making sure that we forget, at least for the moment, the tangled and noise-ridden lives that we lead and pretend to enjoy... sometimes fooling others and at other times, ourselves. Pondering over life from a third angle actually gives you a deeper understanding of what we have gained and what we have lost... as people, friends, persons and professional. A pity though, that all these insights that we gain on 'get-aways' like these get washed out like dry leaves as soon as the rush from our 'normal' lives gushes in our timetables like winds and rivers.

Above all, what made things different for me, were the memories of my previous visit to the place with the guys that I am never gonna forget in my life. Back then, we had little money in pockets, but loads of moments to convert into memories. I re-dined in a restaurant. The food was same as before. So was the service. But something was not as pleasant as the last time. Maybe it is the tendency of human mind... to cherish the past rather than revel in the present. Maybe I was just wasting my time being nostalgic rather than enjoying the day. But all said and done... wish 'You' were there

  2. Memories are to cherish, not to live with. Then today will not become a cherishable memory for the future.
