Old Memories

“Few broken bricks and some peeling plaster, Hues of black and sometimes white, A smile and then a glower. Leaning through the window of old memories, A step back and you walk with reality, a step further and you blend with the horizon like that twinkling star!” Though all my days start early mornings, holidays and weekends give me the lee way to laze around and catch up on some extra beauty sleep 😛 But this particular day in Pune I decided to climb a mountain with my hubby and a friend. And i couldn’t have asked for more. A beautiful old fort, right up, covered in fog. I wonder if I would have opted for sleep that day instead of this trip uphill, how would I have cherished this moment that’s engrained in my memories forever. When we procrastinate things we don’t know what passed by us, it’s only when we wake up to opportunities – to run, live, explore, we realize the treasures the world curls up. Advertisements

And so I decided to throw away all my old clothes (to be honest I kept a couple to use them for house cleaning :-p ) so that I can go shopping and sort of ramp up my closet. I was thrilled and excited, though a little sad when I had to part with a couple of night dresses which were my partner since ages (college nostalgia). But overall the feeling was that of happiness. The radio was playing in the background and the RJ mentioned about a book called Shiva Trilogy (it’s been quite talked about these days in Indian Media). I have kept away from this book because it’s mythology, of which I am not a big fan. So, this lady on radio talked about a very interesting concept that the book defines – “destruction is necessary for the new life to come”! Wow! And I felt I had this moment of truth with a halo …
