Eternity!!

DSC_0702Shall I write of the moon and the stars, or about the birds playing hide and seek amongst the leaves? Or should I write about how the plant they had given up for dead has new leaves budding again? Each moment in itself seems like an eternity, with thousands of parallel stories vying with each other to be heard, while a few small ones remain content to lay hidden, till someone cares enough to hear it out, like the tiny green potted plant!

The plant was a peace offering, from an anxious husband to an irate wife, and had brought a smile that lit her face up, and the warmth spread to his heart. Now they bickered over how much manure was to be given, and whether it got any water that day or not! The plant blossomed under their inexpertise, and brought them together in a whole new way. When they moved, they decide to leave it as a legacy to the place they had called home for what seemed like an eternity!

Fairy tales

all pics 219Isn’t it funny? That when we grow up, our fairytales become chick flicks? Or is it only the popular culture that has robbed us of the magic? Why do we now have to believe that to be happy, we need a big golden limousine? Or did we grow up with the wrong stories? Of princesses and unicorns? And forgot all about the heartwarming tales of children playing in the fresh air? Stories that inevitably thought that too much or too little of ambition ruined simple pleasures and stole the joy out of living. Stories that taught us that there is good in every person and the villains are people to be pitied. But one thing that age teaches us which is that being happy and being attached is not the same thing. Embrace everything, but don’t get addicted. Addiction cripples imagination and innovation. Loving without addiction is detachment. Detachment without loving leaves us cynical and eventually embittered. It’s an art worth cultivating.
